CityFibre Bring Fibre Optic Broadband to Student Buildings in York UK

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013 (3:15 pm) - Score 647

Fibre optic network developer CityFibre, which builds ultra-fast broadband networks in big towns and cities around the United Kingdom, has teamed up with multi-tenant accommodation provider Keycom to connect a student accommodation building in the city of York (England) to its local FTTP/H network.

Keycom, a specialist supplier of high-speed broadband for students, key-workers, housing associations and armed forces accommodation, will use the new pure dark fibre connection to “gain complete control and flexibility over its bandwidth” and to future-proof its network against the “growing data demands of its customers“. Apparently this can also be done “without incurring additional costs“.

James Blessing, CTO at Keycom, said:

With potential customer sites all over York, CityFibre’s fibre solution is ideal for our needs. CityFibre is able to deploy new connections extremely fast and very cost-effectively, meaning we can deliver our services faster, can put the bandwidth requirements of our customers first and are able to quickly hook up new buildings as required.

Choosing CityFibre infrastructure above the alternative BT point-to-point circuit was much more cost effective as we didn’t have to buy a managed service. It has given us the ability to connect to our own new York-based POP rather than rely on third party equipment and enables us to deliver other services at a better price as well as cut lead times when it comes to upgrades.”

Rob Hamlin, CityFibres Head of Business Development, added:

Keycom has recognised the business benefits of utilizing pure fibre infrastructure, which will enable it to deliver an outstanding high-speed internet service to its customers. We are looking forward to working with Keycom to connect other multi-accommodation sites to our fibre network in the same way.

This connection marks yet another step in our vision to make York into a true Gigabit City, whereby we ensure that all communities within a city – the public sector, businesses and residents are able to take advantage of the huge benefits of pure fibre connectivity. We are seeing the transformation in York already, and we are pleased that Keycom are joining the fibre revolution in York.”

The new connection links into CityFibre’s 10Gbps (Gigabits per second) capable and 103km long fibre optic ring network in York (http://www.theyorkcore.com), which was completed last year but has only recently begun to connect its first business customers after initially working almost exclusively with the local authority.
