Fujitsu Appointed Build Partner for Fibre to the Premises in York

Fujitsu Networks and Telecoms awarded major FTTP construction contract by Joint Venture established by Sky and TalkTalk in partnership with CityFibre

London, September 24, 2014

Fujitsu has been chosen as the build partner for the first phase of deployment of a state of the art, city-wide Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) network to deliver broadband speeds of 1 Gigabit (1000 Mbps) direct to homes and businesses in York. The contract was awarded by the new joint venture company established earlier this year by Sky, TalkTalk and CityFibre.

Fujitsu was selected for its in depth knowledge and experience of delivering networks for Tier 1 Operators in the UK and abroad as well as its ability to build networks at scale. Network planning is well advanced and the first technology and construction activities aimed at optimising deployment speed, cost and quality are commencing in late October.

Fujitsu will undertake all of the build activities including detailed network planning, civil and network construction, testing and interconnection of the FTTP network.

Catherine Rowe, Executive Director, Networks and Telecoms, Fujitsu UK & Ireland said: “This is an extremely exciting opportunity for Fujitsu to work with Sky, TalkTalk and CityFibre as the chosen constructor for the build of Fibre to the Premises in York. Having ultra-fast fibre network all the way to the home or business will provide a step-change in connectivity speeds that will enable the next generation of exciting products and services to be developed apace by Sky and TalkTalk.”
