Since we acquired our next generation networks in January, there has been a lot of focus on the fibre to the home network (FTTH) in Bournemouth. But CityFibre not only builds FTTH, we also build fibre optic infrastructure for organisations such as universities, hospitals, local authorities and businesses and we currently have more than 100 customers benefiting from these high performance networks. The scale of these projects can range from bespoke links to extensive metropolitan fibre rings, and it is these rings which present the biggest opportunities to build out FTTH in the future.

Local government drivers to communicate and deliver better services to their citizens means that the requirement for reliable, high speed and high capacity network infrastructure is growing fast. Nowhere is this better demonstrated than in York, where, in partnership with Pinacl, we have just completed a project for City of York Council. We have laid 95km of fibre optic cable which connects over 100 sites across the city including schools, council offices, shopping centres, leisure centres, tourism offices, park and ride locations, and youth and community centres.

The future for York is really exciting, as this network is (to use a truly over used phrase) ‘future-proof’. It will serve this city well and has been designed for its benefits to extend beyond the city’s walls should the need arise.
