CityFibre Invest GBP21m to Rollout FTTP Broadband in Lincoln

CityFibre has today announced that they’ve committed £21 million to deploy a new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband ISP network to homes and businesses in the Lincolnshire (England) city of Lincoln, which is home to a total population of around 95,000 (including the borough area).

Construction work on the new full fibre network is currently planned to begin in March 2022 and the civil engineering side will be delivered by CityFibre’s build partner, Trust Construction. The team will use a range of construction methods while working in close partnership with Lincoln City and County Council and local communities to minimise potential disruption.

NOTE: Cityfibre is supported by various ISPs, such as Vodafone (Gigafast Broadband), TalkTalk (Future Fibre), Zen Internet, Giganet and others, but they aren’t all live or available in every location.. yet.

The rollout forms part of CityFibre’s wider £4bn investment programme, which has already covered 1 million UK premises with FTTP and aims to have 8 million “substantially completed” – across 285 cities, towns and villages (c.30% of the UK) – by the end of 2025 (here). This will also cover a total of around 800,000 businesses, 400,000 public sector sites and 250,000 5G access points.

Neal Wright, City Manager for Lincoln, said:

“The next chapter in Lincoln’s story starts here. Our builders will soon get to work on a city-wide Full Fibre network – and we think people will be blown away by the difference it will make, both now and for generations to come. We cannot wait for residents and businesses to see what is possible with digital connectivity that propels you forward rather than holds you back.”

As usual, CityFibre won’t be the only gigabit-capable broadband network in the city. Virgin Media (VMO2) already covers the vast majority of premises, while Openreach are also deploying FTTP across the city and the ITS Technology Group serves some local businesses via their own fibre network. Lastly, OFNL also has a tiny bit of coverage, but they seem unlikely to threaten the others.

    I found out today that Gigaclear are installing fibre into my North Dorset small town! And had confirmation MY house will get it! Should be able to order it towards the end of next year all going well. But I haven’t seen it mentioned in this website? That Gigaclear are now installing fibre networks in Dorset.
    But I had no idea either till I saw workmen walking around yesterday with Gigaclear overalls on.

      Trust me when they do the work you will have roadworks with GC signs all over them.

    Oh yeah, nice!
    Any announcements on specific areas in Lincoln?
    Open reach have planned the northern sector and I’m in the South west which is not planned.
    I’m hoping city fibre are covering the huge area OR have missed off rather than over build.

    1. David again says:

      Can I have 10G please?
      Pretty please!

      stuff large area bring that girthy gigabit line to the city centre just off broadgate 50m south of the BT exchange. theres 90-126 homes within a 250m2 area that BT have forgotten exist.

  3. D says:

    Dan, that area looks like it’ll be picked up by BT go on the open reach website and there is a map. Their time frame is between now and 2025 which I think means as soon as an alt net tries to lay cable then we’ll get of our do dah and do it to compete against them!

    So it looks promising if city fibre do cover that area. You’ll get both!

    1. Dan Spurr says:

      it’s been in the plans since 2015 when they had a plan for FTTC which got scrapped. then radio silence on every “these places next” news blast. it’s also BT i don’t want to have to pay for a landline i’m haven’t used in 12 years anymore.
