Bamboo partners CityFibre to speed up Internet connections in Gloucester and Cheltenham

CityFibre has partnered with ICT company Bamboo Technology Group to bring full-fibre connectivity to businesses in Cheltenham and Gloucester.

Businesses across the area will soon have access to almost unlimited bandwidth, symmetrical 500Mbps and 1Gbps Internet services.

A recent survey conducted by both companies, revealed that over 60% of local businesses have an Internet connection below 50Mbps.

Nick Gray, City Development Manager at CityFibre, said: "We've successfully rolled out full-fibre infrastructure to 42 metro areas in the UK, including neighbouring Bristol in 2016.

"Our expansion into two new areas will help the region reach its digital potential. Our investment in Gloucester and Cheltenham will stand to give businesses and services a modern foundation for growth, investment and innovation and a proven toolkit for increased efficiency, productivity and competitiveness."

Bamboo Technologies MD Lorrin White added: "With over 85% of businesses we spoke to expressing an interest in affordable 500Mbps, there is clearly a growing appetite and need for the service."
