Businesses Show Interest in CityFibre’s Fibre Optic Plan for Peterborough

Thursday, Feb 20th, 2014 (11:26 am) - Score 1,171

CityFibre’s “Gig Up” campaign, which has been working to drum up business support for their £30m strategic partnership with Peterborough City Council to roll-out a new 1000Mbps fibre optic network in the area, has heralded its efforts as a success after attracting interest from 100+ firms within the first week.

Work on the new Peterborough CORE network is due to begin in April 2014 and it will then take 12 months to complete. But the network won’t only serve public sector organisations and CityFibre are also working to attract interest from businesses, which could help to shape a more demand focused deployment.


Greg Mesch, CEO of CityFibre, said:

We are delighted by the strength of the response, though not entirely surprised. We have had excellent feedback from businesses in Peterborough since announcing our investment at the end of last year, and the impression that we get, reinforced by the number already registered, is that they fully recognise the considerable and positive impact that ultra-fast services delivered through the new fibre network will have on their operations.”

It’s good to see CityFibre attracting interest from local firms, although converting such support into paying customers can be an altogether more challenging experience.
