CityFibre Brings 1Gbps Broadband to PSN in Kirklees (West Yorkshire)

Monday, Aug 11th, 2014 (1:38 pm) - Score 812

Fibre optic infrastructure builder CityFibre, which now has close to £50m of investment ready for use in various cities and towns across the United Kingdom, have reached a new agreement with Easynet (formerly MDNX) that will allow them to “significantly” upgrade the operators Public Service Network (PSN) in the metropolitan borough of Kirkless.

As part of the agreement, CityFibre will supply dark fibre connectivity into Easynet’s PSN network and this should provide Easynet, a UK Government approved and accredited PSN and G-Cloud supplier, with the ability to offer its public sector customers “limitless capacity at a competitive price“; as well as the ability to ‘tune up’ bandwidth over time.

Unfortunately at this stage there’s no mention of CityFibre also being able to expand the network’s availability out to local businesses and homes, much like they’ve done in York and plan to do elsewhere. But the opportunity is clearly there for the future.

Greg Mesch, CEO of CityFibre, said:

Thanks to our partnership with Easynet, CityFibre is now approved as a supplier to Easynet for the Government’s PSN framework. Our city-wide pure fibre solutions are now available to local authorities throughout the UK.

In a digital age, we must ensure that our towns and cities are furnished with a next generation and future-proof digital infrastructure supporting the public and private sectors. Our partnership with Easynet is an exciting opportunity for local authorities up and down the country to make the most of the PSN.”

As a result of today’s announcement cities and towns like Huddersfield, Dewsbury and Batley will also soon get “access to some of the fastest, most reliable digital connectivity in the country“.
