Fibre provider reaches Suffolk milestone

CityFibre has published figures claiming to have laid 1,725 kilometres of full fibre across across the county of Suffolk. This is enough – according to the company - to cover the Rowley Mile circuit at Newmarket Races more than 850 times.

The company states that the fibre is being laid is part of a £53 million investment into the region, with locations including Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Lowestoft.

Discussing the roll-out, a spokesperson said: “CityFibre has already connected thousands of homes and businesses [in the region] to its full fibre network. This allows access to lightning-fast broadband services from launch partner Vodafone, on selected Vodafone Pro Broadband plans. TalkTalk, Air Broadband, Zen and many others are available in parts of the towns.

“Across the UK, CityFibre is building new and better digital infrastructure for up to eight million homes and businesses through its nationwide full fibre rollout.”

CityFibre area manager for Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Lowestoft, Charles Kitchin, said: “Our network rollouts in [these towns and cities] will accelerate growth and innovation in Suffolk. The figures released today demonstrate the fantastic progress that our build teams are making, and we cannot wait to connect even more people in the area to the best available digital infrastructure.
