MS3 Networks provides progress update as it reaches 200,000 premises with full fibre

Full fibre network operator MS3 Networks has hit another milestone — its network build has passed 200,000 premises across the Hull and the Humber region of England. The company has been on a rapid network expansion for the last two years and is also connecting its 10,000th customer in Hull.

The latest achievements mark MS3’s progress towards its goal to ultimately cover over 500,000 premises with its 10Gb fibre network. MS3 has now passed over 200,000 homes and businesses across the North of England, including completed builds in Scunthorpe and Immingham, ongoing work in Mexborough and Grimsby and is on track to complete the majority of its Hull build by the end of 2024.

Hull, where MS3 is based, has now seen the network rollout reach 113,000 premises passed with 93,000 able to order today from their network of 15 residential and 35 business partners directly or via the price comparison site. Customer penetration 12 months after build in Hull is at 14.3 per cent and Hull will be the first location on MS3’s network to reach 10,000 customer fibre connections next month.

MS3’s strategic expansion focuses on bridging the digital divide, especially in underserved areas like Hull, which have long suffered with higher prices due to incumbent operator domination — something that’s recognised by Ofcom. By delivering reliable, ultrafast internet and making it available to multiple ISP partners at competitive rates MS3 aims to support digital inclusion, enabling more individuals and businesses to access the internet.

“Passing the milestone of 200,000 premises is a testament to our team’s ongoing determination and drive to change the broadband landscape in the region,” explained Guy Miller, CEO of MS3 Networks. “We remain committed to providing exceptional full fibre services to our ISP partners and their customers as we continue to expand our network. We are also very proud of our take-up levels with a number of areas in Hull above 20 per cent despite us only starting the build two years ago.”

MS3 Networks delivers full fibre services through its network of ISP partners. For more information on partnering with MS3 and accessing its growing FTTP network, please visit their website.
