The new broadband network goes live later this month and promises to deliver superfast internet at low prices, to thousands of premises in and around Blackpool.
It’s fantastic news for the local residents who’ve long been ignored by the so-called ‘big internet’ providers. Like many areas across the North West, Blackpool has some of the worst internet connections in the UK. Many mainstream broadband firms refused to build networks in Blackpool, citing high construction costs and a low return on investment. In other words, they didn’t think the town or its people were worth it.
Residents are forced to pay over the odds for sub-standard connections, while others simply can’t afford monthly tariffs and have no access to essential digital services. Digital exclusion is a serious issue that leads to fewer economic opportunities and poorer health outcomes, including a reduced life expectancy.
“Blackpool is one of the UK’s ‘left behind’ areas,” says Dr Luke Munford, a lecturer in health economics at the University of Manchester. “Digital exclusion is a huge contributor to the struggles the town faces.”
6G Internet is a high-speed broadband network that delivers guaranteed high-speed internet at extremely affordable prices. For less than £20 p/m, you’ll receive enough broadband to support browsing, streaming, gaming and home working on multiple devices. Also, with 6G Internet’s no price rise promise, you’ll never pay more than you agreed to.
6G Internet will ensure that everyone in Blackpool has the same opportunity to benefit from fast and reliable broadband connections. The Internet for everyone campaign will donate 20% of 6G Internet’s network coverage to schools, charities and local organisations in need. It also provides tablets and other digital devices to children from families experiencing economic hardship.
The network uses wireless transmitters, installed on roof-tops, telecommunication masts and street poles, to send full-fibre Wi-Fi signals through the air.
Phil Walker is the Director of Finance at 6G Internet. He says, “Over the last 15 years, billions of pounds have been invested in research and development for wireless broadband technology. NASA uses it to communicate with its Mars rover. Tesla cars use it to update and navigate.”
“Now we are using it to make sure people in Blackpool can access the internet faster and cheaper than anywhere else in the UK. It’s a true game-changer. Residents and businesses will be able to take full advantage of technology and services that are at the cutting edge of what is possible. If anywhere deserved a digital upgrade, then it’s Blackpool. We’re excited to see the impact the network will have.”
