CityFibre has confirmed 14 more Gigabit Cities are being prepared for full fibre rollouts.
This second phase of roll outs extend CityFibre’s Gigabit City programme by a further million homes – now totalling over two million homes across 26 towns and cities.
The new cities named are Batley, Bradford, Derby, Dewsbury, Doncaster, Inverness, Ipswich, Leicester, Lowestoft, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Rotherham, Slough, Swindon and Worthing.
CityFibre CEO Greg Mesch said: “CityFibre’s sole purpose is to deliver the future-proof digital infrastructure the UK deserves.
"With a new Prime Minister set to increase government's ambitions for the pace of full fibre rollout, we welcome another 14 towns and cities to our Gigabit City Club.
"These Gigabit Cities will not only gain new full fibre networks that will spark their digital transformation, but also unleash the benefits that only competitive infrastructure investment can bring.
“Our rollout to five million homes is gathering momentum. We have now confirmed 26 locations and over two million homes in our programme. We are investing, we are building, and we are connecting customers to networks of the future.”
