The ultimate guide to fibre broadband in Liverpool

What is LCR Connect?

The digital divide has left much of the north of England with outdated infrastructure. This means businesses can’t transfer data, use cloud storage or communicate as fast as businesses in the south. However, LCR Connect is going to change that. As part of the Faster Britain full-fibre Internet build, it will deliver highly available, highly resilient, ultrafast Internet services to the Liverpool City Region using Gigabit technology.  

Its coverage with span over 130 miles of gigabit-capable fibre across Liverpool, Sefton, Wirral, Knowsley, Halton and St Helens.

Investors, universities, schools, hospitals, residents and students also have access to the network. Wider industries set to benefit include health and life sciences, Artificial Intelligence, virtual and augmented reality and advanced manufacturing – driving business growth and investment.

It is estimated that LCR Connect will have an economic boost of up to £ 1 billion for the Liverpool City Region. This will support local jobs and training- meaning Liverpool and the wider region has much to benefit from.

Where does LCR Connect Cover?

The LCR Connect rollout focuses on covering the Liverpool city region area. This includes towns and villages in and around the following:

  • Liverpool
  • The Wirral
  • Sefton
  • Knowsley
  • St Helens
  • Halton

ITS Technology group chose to build LCR Connect because the Liverpool City Region is underserved by existing national providers, such as BT and Virgin Media. Without LCR Connect, towns and villages in the Liverpool City Region would remain without fibre for years to come. Speeding this up gives businesses the tools to compete in the digital landscape and prevents them getting caught on the wrong side of the digital divide.

How is the LCR Connect Network Built?

Unfortunately, you can’t simply build a broadband network in one go. It requires ripping up roads, adding cabinets and many other logistical challenges. This means the LCR Connect network is being built in stages.

January 2022 saw the first part of the network go live. This covered businesses in the Wirral, in the New Chester Road area. There is now full fibre available around Wirral International Business Park, Bromborough, and towards Rock Ferry.

In February 2022, several larger sections went live- including Liverpool City Centre, St. Helens (including through to Widnes and Speke), Southport (including through to Ormskirk and Maghull) and Haydock.

March 2022 included East Lancs Road: the network spanning from Knowsley Industrial Park, along the A580 to St Helens and Astmoor Industrial Estate to Daresbury.

Can I get LCR Connect services?

If you live in one of the areas mentioned in the section above then the answer is more than likely yes.

However, if not then it may be some time before LCR Connect is live in your area as the project isn’t due to be completely finished until early 2023. If you have a wait ahead, it will be worth it for.

In between March 2022 and early 2023, you can check If you area is live by getting an LCR Connect quote. This will not only tell you if it’s available, but also how much and how long the installation will take.
