They usually do new property deployment, but as noted by ISP review last month, they are doing other stuff as well:

Ok thanks, not so interested in these guys as I dont think they wholesale, but regardless I did contact them, and they say planned but not yet, very vague but clearly not coming soon.

They dont have a checker, so I will probably be forgetting about these guys.

I am in one of the properties covered by the Grain Connect (subsidiary of Solway Communications) in Scarborough. Annoyingly their residential service isn't really suitable for "power users", as they're using CG-NAT and require you to use their router. After lengthy conversations with their team, they are able to offer a static IP (so no CG-NAT) with the option to use your own router etc, but this is only available on their business plans - all with a 24 month contract (these are the prices I was provided with, so your milage may vary)...

- 100Mb Down, 10Mb up - 25p/m + 5 static IP uplift
- 200Mb Down, 20Mb up - 40p/m + 5 static IP uplift
- 300Mb Down, 30Mb up - 75p/m + 2.50 static IP uplift
- 500Mb down, 50Mb up - 125p/m

Wow they make Openreach FTTP seem like saints with their business segregation.
