Gigabit Cities

We’re in the middle of a digital revolution. In towns and cities across the UK, the rise of new technologies and cloud services is radically transforming the way we live and work. Government, businesses and citizens are increasingly aware of the importance of digital infrastructure. Our digital connectivity is either a barrier to growth and innovation or a catalyst for economic and social development.

CityFibre is a builder of Gigabit Cities. Through the deployment of a fit-for-purpose, pure fibre infrastructure, we help bring the benefits of Gigabit speed connectivity to entire communities. Every Gigabit City we build provides local business, Government, health and education sectors with a modern fibre infrastructure, capable of meeting their data connectivity and communication needs for years to come

Our Gigabit City networks have the potential to serve people in their homes too; improving connections with family and friends across the globe and enriching lives through study, work/life flexibility and entertainment services.
