Cityfibre Complete Extension of FTTP Broadband Network in Kirklees

At the end of 2014 Cityfibre announced their plan to extend an 80km pure metro fibre optic Public Service Network (PSN) in Huddersfield, Kirklees (West Yorkshire, England) to cater for local businesses and happily, after 10 months of construction, the operator has now completed it.

The Kirklees CORE is now able to offer symmetric broadband speeds of 1000Mbps (1Gbps) to local firms via Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) style connectivity. As before this is a demand-led deployment and over 400 businesses have already registered their interest in receiving the service, with dozens due to be connected over the coming months.

At the same time the new network will also continue to provide services for 176 Kirklees council sites, including government offices, schools, youth centres and council departments.

Neil Aspin, CityFibre’s Kirklees Rep, said:

We are delighted that construction work is complete on the Kirklees CORE and that the first businesses and council sites have already been connected. Finally Kirklees’ business community can enjoy connectivity that’s both ultrafast and reliable – vital for the growth of private and public sectors alike. We urge businesses to register their interest at kirkleescore.com to take advantage of this opportunity to increase their productivity and profitability.”

Mind you the original plan was for Cityfibre to start connecting the first firms in March 2015 (here), so this time they’re running a little bit behind schedule.
