Neos Networks is to bring connectivity to nine more UK cities following an extension if its partnership with CityFibre.
The cities set to gain access to business grade Ethernet connectivity on the CityFibre network are Cambridge, Cheltenham, Coventry, Derby, Gloucester, Huddersfield, Peterborough, Southend and Swindon.
They join the 15 CityFibre regions made available in 2019.
In addition to the CityFibre agreement Neos Networks is on the way to delivering its target of more than doubling the number of exchanges on its own network, up to 550 exchanges by the end of 2021.
The enhancement of its network footprint will also result in an additional 10,000km of fibre network for the company.
Sarah Mills, MD for Wholesale and Smart Infrastructure at Neos Networks, said: “Neos Networks 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.
"This development of our partnership means we can now offer businesses enhanced, self-serve, last-mile capability in more locations than before.
"With business connectivity needs increasing, offering a new network alternative for multi-location businesses can help them on the path to recovery.”
Andrew Wilson, Head of Wholesale at CityFibre, added: “The extended partnership with Neos Networks helps to meet increased demand, providing all-important choice in the market.”
