Responding to coverage in the Sunday Times of a letter, sent to the Chancellor and signed by over 20 leaders of towns and cities across the North of England, warning of the dangers of inefficient and duplicative deployments of wholesale full fibre infrastructure, Greg Mesch, CEO of CityFibre said:

“While the benefits of having competing full fibre builders at a national level are already clear – faster services, lower prices and greater reliability for consumers – at a local level, duplicative fibre rollouts will deliver no additional benefit to communities and starve other areas of investment altogether.

It’s critical that the voice of cities, their leaders and communities is heard. It is in their interest and in the national interest that coverage is maximised and that no area misses out.”
