CityFibre (www.cityfibreholdings.com) is one of the UK’s leading fibre optic infrastructure providers. We are providing the UK’s second tier cities with transformational fibre optic infrastructure capable of delivering gigabit services, changing the way businesses and consumers can communicate.
Instead of trying to use and repurpose aging networks we are building dedicated carrier-grade pure fibre networks for the public and private sectors which comprise point-to-point connections, metro rings and Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP and FTTH).
CityFibre manages over 100 private fibre projects and seven separate metropolitan fibre rings under long-term contracts with local authorities, police forces, healthcare organisations and universities. With almost 30,000km of fibre in the ground, connecting more than 350 sites and data centres across the UK, we are the country’s largest independent provider of fibre in secondary cities.
In Bournemouth, CityFibre owns the largest FTTH project in the UK. With over 24,000 homes ready for service in 2012, the network enables service providers to deliver unprecedented superfast broadband with speeds of up to one gigabit per second.
