Local broadband provider, brsk (pronounced “brisk”), has been rolling out a new full fibre network over the last year, connecting thousands of homes and businesses in Lancashire to the fastest and most reliable type of broadband.

Their latest deal, which launched on September 1, offers amazing speeds and starts from as little as £1 per month for the first three months of a two-year contract!

You might have seen them out and about meeting the local community, whizzing around the area in their eye-catching pink, blue and white vans, or at any of the events they have attended across this summer; Blackburn Pride, Shadsworth Carnival and Rosegrove Summer Fair, to name a few.

When you also consider they sponsor a number of local clubs, including Accrington Stanley, Burnley FC, and Blackburn Proud Rovers. They also work with a number of charities and community initiatives, including Hyndburn Food Pantry, Audley Community Centre, Community Solutions, and Age UK Lancashire, who recently rolled out some brsk sponsored donation stations, so it’s safe to say that they are really immersing themselves in all things Lancashire!

70,000 homes can enjoy game-changing broadband in the region right now thanks to brsk’s network. They are on a mission to eradicate older copper-based services that use outdated infrastructure, and offer an alternative option. The sad reality is that many still don’t know the difference between older copper services and full fibre.

It’s not just speeds and reliability that set it apart, if you don’t have full fibre, you’re likely to suffer from broadband blues, including issues like slow speeds, lagging, buffering and network downtime. So If you haven’t already checked your postcode, you’re definitely missing out!

That’s why brsk is here! They believe that Lancashire deserves the best broadband, and at great value. Treating customers fairly, and delivering a great service is their ethos, which is why you won’t get any unexpected mid-contract price hikes, as well as a better service including symmetrical upload and download speeds, at a price which rivals copper-based services, so you know you’re getting good value - what’s not to love!

Speaking of the roll out, brsk Lancashire community engagement manager, Jo Spencer, said: “We call it the BetterNet because we’re setting a brand new standard for how broadband should be, we’re not just about providing the service, we’re here to help with not only a better network; we are installing future-proof infrastructure, ensuring that communities within Lancashire are prepared for the future. 

"A community with full fibre broadband attracts businesses and entrepreneurs looking for reliable, high speed connectivity, this in turn can lead to job creation, increased investments and economic growth."

If you’re wondering if this is a provider you can trust, their Truspilot score speaks for itself; with a rating of 4.8/5 “excellent”, and over 3,500 reviews.

They also have one of the fastest resolution times in the industry, meaning that if things go wrong, you won’t be kept waiting days for an engineer and you’ll always know that they’re on the ball to get things back up and running as soon as possible.

With a real focus on community, from providing free broadband to local community centres, getting behind charities, or supporting local sports clubs, brsk is on a mission to accelerate full fibre connectivity in Lancashire to make it one of the best-serviced areas in the UK.
