Telcom Group to deliver phase two fibre contract in Cardiff

Telcom Group has been selected by Cardiff Council for the next phase of its Hypercity Transformation project, which will roll out full fibre internet network to homes and businesses across the city.

This is part of a multi-million-pound investment through the Welsh Government’s Local Broadband Fund. Cardiff Council and the Welsh Government have committed to remedying patchy internet access, targeting 100% availability of fibre optic internet across the city.

In August 2023, Cardiff Council selected Telcom Group to deliver an initial phase which was completed in March 2024, with the second phase planned for delivery throughout 2024/2025.

Chris Baldock, Executive Chairman at Telcom Group, said: “We believe that access to fast and reliable internet is a fundamental human right, and that bringing full fibre internet to Cardiff will both empower the city’s economy and enrich the lives of its residents.”

Cllr Chris Weaver, Cabinet Member for Finance, Modernisation and Performance at Cardiff Council said: “This project will deliver high quality fibre broadband to some of the most deprived communities in Cardiff and I am pleased that the second phase of the project is now underway and will be complete by March 2025.”
