In his first major speech about the economic future of Britain following the Coronavirus pandemic, Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined his goal to level up the economy across the UK.

In response, Greg Mesch, CEO of CityFibre, said:

“Project Speed will not find a faster technology than full fibre infrastructure to support the country’s recovery. Our multi-billion pound shovel-ready build programme is already well underway which will allow CityFibre to create up to 10,000 jobs up and down the country.

“From Bradford to Southend, Doncaster to Ipswich and beyond, the opportunity is there for full fibre to create a new agile, green and balanced economy where nobody is left behind.

“What the U.K. needs now is the Government to put in place the right policy and regulatory conditions to level up our digital infrastructure and unlock a new platform for success.”
