Full speed ahead
for a full-fibre home.
Starting a revolution in residential broadband
CityFibre has begun its full fibre roll-out to approximately 5 million homes and businesses across the UK in partnership with Vodafone. By 2025 our full fibre networks will provide near-universal wholesale access to future-proof digital infrastructure to over 50 cities.
The first phase of the project, reaching 1 million homes and businesses in 12 cities is already underway with the first cities announced - Milton Keynes, Aberdeen, Peterborough, Coventry, Edinburgh, Stirling, Huddersfield. As homes are connected, they will have access to next generation, gigabit speed broadband services from Vodafone. Businesses will enjoy a range of ultra-fast internet services from a range of specialist partners.
This is the beginning of a full fibre revolution for the UK. Copper is dead and the switch-over to full fibre has started. Full speed ahead!

Frequently asked questions
Although many services in the UK are dubbed as ‘fibre broadband’, this term is typically used to describe services delivered using “fibre to the cabinet” (FTTC) technology – meaning the last stretch of network from the street cabinet into your home uses capacity-constrained copper cable, which acts as a bottle-neck and significantly reduces the speeds you are able to access in your home.
Full-fibre networks transmit data in the form of light down glass fibre-optic cables for the entire connection into your home. With no ageing copper in the network, you’ll receive lightning fast and reliable broadband services capable of Gigabit speeds (1,000 Mbps).
With a full-fibre broadband connection into your home, you’ll experience seamless connectivity over all your connected devices – even when they are streaming, downloading and playing all at once. You’ll be able to fully embrace the new generation of “smart home” applications to enhance your daily life and remote home working will become effortless with instant and reliable access to the cloud.
Outside your home, CityFibre’s full-fibre infrastructure will be supporting wide-scale digital transformation within your city – enabling schools, health and social care, businesses and public services as well as bringing the potential for vastly improved mobile network services. It will make your city more innovative, more productive and give a digital boost to the overall economy.
The first towns and cities in the roll-out will be announced over the next few months. They are being selected from the project cities in which CityFibre already has, or is building, metro fibre infrastructure (see here). If you’d like to stay updated on our city announcements, you can register your interest here.
Vodafone will market and sell ultrafast, full fibre, gigabit-capable services to residents as the CityFibre network is deployed. When you place a full-fibre order with Vodafone, they’ll arrange for CityFibre to connect your property to the fibre network running through your street.
Vodafone will be announcing their products and services in due course. If you would like to be kept up to date with any product or project related announcements, you can register your interest here.

Our strategic partnership with Vodafone has enabled us to invest in expanding our full-fibre network infrastructure in our chosen cities. For an initial period of time – predominantly during the construction phase of each city network – only Vodafone will be able to sell ultra-fast consumer broadband services that use our networks.
Vodafone will market and sell ultrafast, full-fibre services to residents that are capable of Gigabit speeds (1,000 Mbps). Products and pricing will be announced in due course. If you’d like to be kept up to date with any project related announcements, you can register your interest here.
In the majority of cases, network expansion in our chosen cities will mean that we’ll be undertaking a wide-scale construction project throughout the city. The result will be a fit-for-purpose and future-proof digital infrastructure that will provide huge and wide-ranging benefits to the entire community for years to come.
We’ll make every effort to minimise disruption wherever possible, working closely with local authorities, utilising modern construction techniques and constructing in footpaths where possible to avoid disrupting traffic flow. Although the build of a city-wide network can take years, the amount of time we spend in any one road is likely to be just a few days.
We’ll notify you in advance of any construction planned to take place in your street – ensuring you have the details you need of exactly what is happening and when.
If you register your interest, we’ll keep you up to date with any developments on the project or announcements regarding services in your area. For residential enquiries, we’ll also share your details with Vodafone so that they can keep you updated with any announcements on products and pricing. If you haven’t already registered your interest, you can do so here.
