Fibre optic network builder Cityfibre has today signed a new strategic supplier agreement with Cubis (CRH Group), which will see them supply the UK operator with access chambers, covers and cable management systems to aid their FTTP broadband deployments until December 2020.

The deal is intended to support Cityfibre’s on-going £2.5bn investment strategy, which aims to cover around 1 million homes across 12 UK cities and towns with Gigabit capable “full fibre” (FTTP) broadband by the end of 2021 (Phase One) and then 5 million premises across 37 cities and towns by the end of 2025 (here).

Alan Long, CCO of Cubis Systems, said: “We are delighted that CityFibre have chosen Cubis Systems’ products to play such a vital part in the network infrastructure that CityFibre is building across the UK. Over the last months we have come to understand the needs and requirements of CityFibre as its rollout gains pace and we have been very impressed with their professionalism and ambition. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership going forward.”

Cubis already supplies many other operators in the UK broadband market with similar infrastructure, such as Virgin Media.

    We use Cubis at Exascale, they’re great products! Enabling rapid deployment! More over if you happen to train at PQMS their training setup uses Cubis!

    A contract for just over 1 year is hardly strategic.

      I’m curious. What word would you use?

      @TheFacts: It’s easy to criticize other companies and their fibre deployment strategies.

      How about you come up with some constructive ideas?

      The title of the article literally says “Cityfibre Adds Cubis to its LIST of UK Full Fibre Network Suppliers”. (my emphasis)

      They have more than one – thus maybe some of the others are nearing supply capacity and they needed a temporary “top-up” for want of better words from another supplier, OR they are testing out the supplier before committing to a longer contract, which the comment from Cubis themselves seems to support: “We look forward to a LONG and mutually beneficial partnership going forward.” (again my emphasis).
