GigaBath to Deploy 1Gbps Fibre Optic Network to Firms in the UK City of Bath

Thursday, Jan 30th, 2014 (1:45 pm) - Score 1,229

Business ISP Gradwell and CityFibre have started looking for businesses in the Someset city of Bath (South West England) to register their interest and support plans to roll-out a 1000Mbps capable fibre optic broadband network (GigaBath) to local firms.

The new service needs 50 companies to help support its drive and enable GigaBath to cover a variety of locations across the city including, but not limited to, James Street West, Charles Street, Chapel Row, Queen Square, Gay Street (yep it exists), Barton Street, George Street, Broad Street and across Westgate Street.


Later the development could also be extended to Walcot Street, Tramshed and Beehive Yard, Great Pultney Street and Brock Street.

Peter Gradwell, Boss of Gradwell, said:

For years Bath City Centre has been held back by old, slow copper broadband connections. None of the big providers has any plans to bring Bath up to speed so we have got together with CityFibre to develop a plan to launch GigaBath, a programme that will enable local businesses to play a full part in the digital economy and enjoy the benefits of Gigafast Business Broadband..”

Mr Gradwell optimistically claims that the new network, which will receive an official launch and demonstration at The Guild on 10th February next month, could potentially be up and running within 90 days of gaining the necessary support from 50 local firms.

The service itself costs £250 to setup and carries a monthly fee from £300 including installation, which looks like a potentially more attractive option than BT’s now more costly (here) 330Mbps capable FTTP on Demand (FoD) product.
