ISP Yayzi Broadband Join CityFibre to Expand in Blackpool and Preston

UK ISP Yayzi Broadband, which has already launched a 1Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) service in Blackpool (Lancashire) by harnessing ITS Technology‘s network, has now joined CityFibre’s rival full fibre build in order to expand their local coverage, as well as being able to launch in the nearby town of Preston.

Just to recap. CityFibre started building their £60m FTTP network in Blackpool back in April, and their £30m rollout in Preston followed a month later. Both of which aim to cover almost every home and business in the two towns. The first customers are currently expected to go live in Preston in September 2021 and Blackpool in January 2022, with both networks planned for completion in 2024.

NOTE: Yayzi previously sold services via Openreach’s network too, but they’ve now stopped doing so.

As usual this forms part of Cityfibre’s £4bn investment, which aims to cover 1 million UK premises with their FTTP network by the end of 2021 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).

Liam Mulryan, CEO of Yayzi, said:

“Access to quality broadband has never been so important, so we’re really excited to be partnering with CityFibre to bring full fibre-enabled services to Blackpool, Fleetwood, Cleveleys, Bispham, Poulton-le-Fylde and Preston for the first time.

This is about so much more than faster internet. This is about futureproof connectivity that can manage the data demands of today and tomorrow. A major factor here is bandwidth, and through Yayzi, local internet users will be able to enjoy the same speeds for upload and download, which means a better experience all round.”

We should point out that Virgin Media will be the main gigabit-capable competition for Yayzi’s service in these towns, although Hyperoptic, OFNL and WeFibre (Telcom) also have some limited presence.

    A gig symmetrical for £39, wow! Sign me up. Looks like Virgin need to step up their game.

    Preston is a city not a town
