Zzoomm expands network into Askern, South Yorkshire

Share this on social media:

Zzoomm will roll out its full fibre broadband network to nearly 3,000 properties in what the company says will be one of the largest civil infrastructures projects the town has seen. Askern joins nearby towns South Elmsall, Hemsworth, Bolton upon Dearne and Thurnscoe in becoming part of the digitally inclusive towns in the area.

Zzoomm was established in 2019 to build and operate new full fibre infrastructure in towns and suburbs across the country, delivering high quality broadband to homes and businesses that are currently only served by copper. The latest expansion follows a £1.3m investment in Kinsley, West Yorkshire, and a £1.7m investment in Upton, also in West Yorkshire. The company also recently selected XGS-PON equipment from Iskratel for its ambitious FTTP expansion.

Matthew Hare, Chief Executive at Zzoomm comments: “It’s fantastic to be continuing our expansion across South Yorkshire, ensuring homes and businesses in Askern join nearby towns in receiving future ready broadband. Our latest investment will give residents unmatched speeds that are not reliant on the slow, unreliable copper used by traditional broadband providers in the area.”
