ISP Gigabit Networks Joins CityFibre’s FTTP Broadband in Derby

CityFibre has today announced that the imaginatively titled UK ISP Gigabit Networks has just become the latest provider to hop on to their new 1Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network, albeit initially only for homes and businesses reached by their £45m deployment across Derby (Derbyshire, England).

The deployment in Derby, which aims to cover “nearly every home and business” in the city, started just over a year ago (here). Overall, a total of 122,000 premises, including schools, the NHS and others in the region, are expected to benefit once it completes.

The first customers are expected to be connected by Gigabit Networks in September 2021 but, despite all the talk about “home broadband” in today’s announcement, the only packages we could find on their website were for business products. Hopefully this will change in time for the first customers to go live.

Dominika Walker, City Manager at CityFibre, said:

“We are delighted to be working with Gigabit Networks, which will offer an exciting and sought-after Gigabit speed home broadband service.

During these unprecedented times, Full Fibre is increasingly vital for many elements of our daily lives and we look forward to seeing even more homes and businesses take advantage of what this level of connectivity can enable now and in the future.”

As usual CityFibre’s build in Derby forms part of their wider £4bn project, which aims to cover 1 million UK premises with their FTTP network by the end of 2021 (over 650,000 have already been reached) and then 8 million premises are expected to be “substantially completed” across 285 cities, towns and villages – c.30% of the UK – by the end of 2025 (here). CityFibre may soon extend this target to 10m premises (here).

    Hi Mark,

    Do you have any information on pricing and offerings? There isn’t much on the website and can’t get any further than the postcode checker (mine isn’t live yet but have a Toby box installed outside)
