RESIDENTS can now watch their favourite TV shows all in one households and no interuptions thanks to ultrafast internet speed.

Stocksfield and Mickley villagers now have access to ultrafast internet speeds thanks to the installation of full fibre broadband across the rural Northumberland villages.

Since late-summer 2022, internet service provider Fusion Fibre Group (formerly known as FACTCO) has been working alongside Northumberland County Council to future-proof Stocksfield and Mickley with ultrafast broadband speeds of up to 1000Mbps.

After making the network live in February, Fusion Fibre Group has been busy bringing full fibre to local homes and businesses.

Guessburn estate is one of Stocksfield’s first areas with full fibre connectivity and is home to Mr. Karol Proszowski who has been experiencing significant improvements in the speed and reliability of their broadband. 

The next release of live properties is currently expected in May and further events will be held for residents. 

“I would encourage everyone with access to this upgraded service in the area to find out more about it from Fusion Fibre Group to see what they can deliver."

 “The connection is brilliant. There are no longer arguments over who can use the internet. I get to watch the football while the rest of my family stream Netflix.”

Fusion Fibre Group’s Head of National Sales, Gary Spooner, said he’s glad the community are finally able to embrace the advantages full fibre: “Although the network build presented its fair share of challenges, witnessing the positive reaction to vastly improved speeds has been incredibly rewarding for the whole team.

“This upgrade wouldn’t have been possible without the support of County Councillor for Stocksfield and Mickley Anne Dale.”

Councillor Dale said: “I am so pleased to see, at last, the introduction of the ultrafast broadband in both Stocksfield and Mickley. The new connection will bring a multitude of benefits for both residents and businesses in the area which I welcome.”

Councillor Richard Wearmouth, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Corporate Services at Northumberland County Council adds: "It is fantastic to see the best broadband capabilities being rolled out across Northumberland and I would like to thank all the teams involved for making this happen.

“I would encourage everyone with access to this upgraded service in the area to find out more about it from Fusion Fibre to see what they can deliver."
