Southend-on-Sea will soon be home to a future-proof pure fibre network providing scalable, ultra-fast connectivity to underpin the council’s ambitious digital strategy.

The new 50km network provides Southend-on-Sea Borough Council with a dark fibre platform from which they can upgrade the existing connectivity provided to 120 sites including schools, colleges and council offices.

Many of these key sites are currently served by legacy BT Openreach connections, frequently delivered over out-dated copper wires. These sites will be migrated to the new network as it is built, providing them with ultra-fast, pure fibre services. As a Gigabit City, Southend will experience the benefits enjoyed by other CityFibre project cities. This infrastructure will enable the Council to deliver cost-effective and efficient digital public sector services, whilst catalysing business growth and inward investment. Mobile masts can be connected to the network to support upgrades to 4G and 5G services, and ultimately the network can provide a backbone for future deployments.
