SSE seals CityFibre Ethernet deal

Wholesale full fibre supplier SSE Enterprise Telecoms has extended its network partnership with fellow fibre player CityFibre which has now been added as a provider for Ethernet services.

The move diversifies the choice of last mile providers and gives access to CityFibre metro networks across 15 cities. Six cities are currently live on SSE's portal with the rest set to activate over the coming months.

SSE Enterprise Telecoms CEO Colin Sempill said: “SSE Enterprise Telecoms and CityFibre have both invested substantially in UK fibre networks over the last ten years, challenging the status quo and developing a strong proposition in the market. It was essential to choose a like-minded partner and CityFibre was a natural fit.”

Rob Hamlin, Commercial Director at CityFibre, added: “SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ customers will gain access to our 1Gbps and 10Gbps Ethernet services. In return, CityFibre will be able to take advantage of the company’s reach and customer base to increase connections across our full fibre network infrastructure.”
