Full fibre provider achieves milestone

CityFibre has rolled-out full fibre to three million premises across the UK. According to a statement, the company will deliver a million ready for service ISPs before the end of the year.

Discussing the company's progress, a spokesperson said: “CityFibre began the construction of its access network in 2018. It has since achieved ‘primary build complete’ status in locations including Milton Keynes, Stirling, Peterborough and Coventry. In its most mature locations - such as Milton Keynes - ISP partners are now approaching 30 per cent take-up, with other locations growing on a similar trajectory.”

The spokesperson continued: “As the network continues to grow and evolve, CityFibre will launch the UK’s first wholesale 2.5Gbps symmetrical consumer broadband product. The 2.5Gbps product is being made available to ISP customers on a rolling basis, starting in CityFibre’s most mature XGS-PON deployment areas.”

Earlier this year the company secured four ‘Project Gigabit’ contract awards, totalling £387 million in government subsidies.

CityFibre CEO, Greg Mesch, said: “We have made phenomenal progress this year, matching our performance from last year. We are on track to deliver another million ready-for-service homes to customers this year.
