In a response to the Chancellor’s funding announcement at the Conservative party conference, Greg Mesch, Chief Executive Officer at CityFibre said: “We welcome the funding announced today for full fibre rollout in the most rural 20% of the UK. CityFibre, with a commitment to build full fibre to 5m properties by 2025, shares the Chancellor’s aim of levelling up the country as part of an infrastructure revolution.

“It’s vital the whole of the UK benefits from transformative connectivity and no-one is left behind. To do this we must maximise coverage by minimising duplication. This is where the Government can play a vital role, helping industry to be as transparent as possible about build plans, and by ensuring access to Openreach’s ducts and poles is fit for purpose.”
