Rural broadband expert Alncom will provide rural businesses and organisations with access to Commsworld’s nationwide Optical Core network directly to their premises.
MD of Alncom, Stephen Pinchen, said: “Northumberland is home to remote communities with the highest volume of cottage and ‘table-top’ industries in the UK. This is a transformative move for our customers and will help bridge the digital divide.”
Bruce Strang (pictured), Commsworld’s COO, said: “Our partnership will result in a step change in the delivery of digital services to the harder-to-reach rural areas. We have the largest privately-funded Optical Core network in the UK with the capability to provide a reliable, high-speed network that is affordable to all those in need of it, no matter where they are geographically.
