Budget UK ISP TalkTalk has announced that residents in the Poppleton area of York are the latest to get access to their 1Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network, which as reported last week (here) has already covered 33,000 premises in the city and should reach 55,000 by 2020.

So far, the local “Ultra Fibre Optic” roll-out has seen 308 kilometres of fibre optic cabling being laid under the streets of York and digging has recently started in Heworth and Tang Hall as work moves to the East of the city.

Residents in the North of the City in Rawcliffe, Clifton, Huntington, New Earswick, along with parts of The Groves have been able to connect to the network for the last three years.

Cllr Ian Gillies, Leader of City of York Council, said:

“As the UK’s first gigabit city, improved connectivity is providing new opportunities for residents and businesses across York off the back of millions of pounds of public and private sector investment.

We’re pleased to see that more of the city is now able to access gigabit speeds and are committed to ensuring that every area of the city is connected to the fastest speeds possible. Investment from connectivity providers plays an important role in creating a future-ready, digital city and with more and more homes due to be connected this year it is an exciting time for the city.”

Alex Birtles, Director of FTTP at TalkTalk, said:

“We’re committed to unlocking York’s full digital potential and transforming it into the UK’s first Ultra Fibre Optic city. Residents in Poppleton will now be able to enjoy the benefits of our full fibre broadband and we’re on track to complete our network expansion across the city by 2020.”

End.

    In fairness isn’t the UK’s first Gigabit City Kingston upon Hull and not York. I know KCOM don’t currently offer a 1gbps package but that is down to choice rather than infrastructure.

      Hull hasn’t reached full coverage of FTTP.

      To be honest there must be a hull of a lot wrong with KCOM’s network when you realize that there are 5 independent WISP’s in Hull.
