Cityfibre to Deploy 20km Fibre Optic Network in the City of Stirling (Scotland)

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017 (7:48 am) - Score 642

Fibre optic network builder Cityfibre has confirmed that Stirling will shortly become their 4th “Gigabit City” project in Scotland, thanks to a £1.7m deal to support the roll-out of a new FTTP based Public Service Network (PSN) that will later be extended to local businesses.

Overall Cityfibreinitially” intends to roll-out 20km of new fibre optic cable in the city, which will be used to connect 33 of the local authority’s sites. The roll-out is being supported by a 7-year contract with Buckinghamshire-based managed service provider MLL Telecom, which is said to have an initial contract value of £1.7 million.

Greg Mesch, CEO of CityFibre, said:

“We’re thrilled to add Stirling as our fourth Gigabit City in Scotland, bringing the numerous benefits of pure fibre connectivity to the public sector and business community in the city. We’re also very pleased to add MLL Telecom to our growing universe of service provider partners and look forward to working together to transform public services and business connectivity in Stirling, our 41st Gigabit City.”

As usual the new PSN looks set to form the basis for a future expansion into other parts of Stirling, such as by connecting local mobile masts and CCTV or WiFi systems. On top of that Cityfibre has also confirmed that the new network will be “extended over time” to cover the “majority” of Stirling’s 3,000 businesses with “affordable” access to Gigabit broadband and Ethernet style services.

    Tom, Stirling has been classed as a city since 2002. Cities are NOT classed as such on population size.
