Wireless ISP Quickline Joins Cityfibre’s UK Full Fibre Network

Tuesday, January 19th, 2021 (9:50 am) - Score 3,048

Broadband ISP Quickline has today become the latest ISP to join Cityfibre’s growing national wholesale Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network, which will enable them to launch gigabit-capable internet packages across a number of initial UK towns and cities during early 2021.

As most people know, Cityfibre is currently investing £4bn (here and here) to rollout FTTP across around 1 million premises by the end of 2021 and then 8 million across 100+ cities and towns (c.30% of the UK) – the latter target is expected to be “substantially completed” by the end of 2025 (depending upon how they define ‘substantially’).

A good number of UK ISPs have already joined their network, such as Vodafone (Gigafast Broadband), TalkTalk and Zen Internet among others, although at launch they aren’t all live or available in every one of the towns and cities being covered. The same is true for Quickline, which will initially only offer packages to people in Doncaster, Leeds, Huddersfield and Batley & Dewsbury.

Nick Thompson, Commercial Director at Quickline, said:

“Quickline are delighted to be partnering with CityFibre to bring gigabit services to a whole new audience. Over the last 10 years Quickline have been dedicated to beginning superfast connections to rural communities across Yorkshire & Lincolnshire.

In 2021 we are broadening our footprint, delivering superfast, ultrafast and gigabit capable services in North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire. We are broadband specialists and partnering with City Fibre allows us to offer our services in new areas.”

At present we couldn’t see any details about related packages on Quickline’s website, but hopefully that will soon follow.

    Wonder why the York CityFibre Network (Purchased from TalkTalk) isn’t included in any or many of these wholesale deals? Commercial deal struck as part of the purchase to continue to give TT exclusivity? Given it wasn’t cheap, and that it got a fair amount of coverage (Although coverage is still poor in the original deployment areas)

  2. Jim says:

    Do we know which, if any, Cityfibre rollouts will be accessible to Sky Broadband yet, or are deals still being done?

    1. Mark Jackson says:

      Sky has yet to reach such an agreement for the wider Cityfibre network.

  3. Bebo says:

    Great something is progressing but think they have forgotten and Cheadle Staffordshire.

  4. Steve says:

    Are we talking about Quickline or Quickline here because the headlines differ from the text. I suspect it’s Quickline.

    1. SimonR says:

      I’m guessing at some point you meant to type Quicklink?

  5. Richard Sullivan says:

    Do you have any information about the city fibre build in Lowestoft as it got stopped at the start of December as the company installing it went bust and can not find anything out about what’s happening.

  6. Wallace says:

    They say I can get Connect max but I hope they actually give us proper fibre – i am in Lincolnshire

  7. FibreAddict says:

    Still no ISP for us in Derby. I’ve had the fibre on the telegraph pole for months

  8. Brian Storey says:

    These exclusivity contracts are surely going to become a bit of a problem soon?

  9. David says:

    CityFibre seem to have abandoned their build in my part of Leeds. Their contractor disappeared months ago leaving coils of fibre hanging off the poles, trip hazards from coils of fibre that have come un-coiled, temporary trenches and several street cabinets unlocked.

  10. Somerset says:

    CityFibre build starts next week in Weston-super-Mare.

  11. Rich says:

    Are they waiting until rollout in a town is complete before selling? I can’t find any premises yet able to order in Ipswich and the build has been going on for a year.
