31st January 2021 – MS3, a provider of full fibre services to homes and businesses, has announced today that it has selected Nokia as a key technology partner as they look to bring full fibre connectivity to over 500,000 homes in Hull and other parts of Northern England.

The partnership with Nokia allows MS3 to continue their mission of delivering true choice of ISP’s for homes, businesses and communities, by delivering a wholesale open access network:

·  The Nokia ISAM 7360 FX OLT has been chosen and will be housed inside MS3’s street cabinets to light the fibre optic cables supplying broadband and ethernet services into homes and businesses via its wholesale ISP partners

·  The Nokia XS-010G-Q ONT will be the small demarcation device fitted in the home whilst the more powerful Nokia XS-010X-Q ONT will be used for business customers.

The first street cabinets containing the Nokia equipment have already been deployed in two areas of Hull - Great Thornton Street and Gipsyville with more set to launch across Hull very shortly.

Chris Byrd, Chief Technology Officer for MS3 said “I’m delighted to be working with Nokia as we roll out our network across Hull and other northern towns and cities. Their product portfolio gives MS3 the scalability we need as our network expands and customer demand for bandwidth steadily increases. We are excited to continue building on our already excellent relationship with Nokia in the coming years.”

Phil Siveter, CEO Nokia UK & Ireland, said: “Today, ultrafast connectivity is an enabler for almost all aspects of economic and social life. Therefore, we need to bring fibre to as many households and business as we can. I am delighted to partner with MS3 to bring world-class, full-fibre connectivity to Northern England.”

Nokia’s XGS-PON solution enables MS3 to deliver a future-proofed connection to its wholesale partners which is capable of delivering symmetrical speeds of up to 10Gb and provides homes and businesses with ultrafast, highly reliable services.
