CityFibre UK Updates on FTTP Broadband Rollout in Bognor Regis

It’s been a couple of years since CityFibre first started rolling out their 10Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband ISP network across the West Sussex seaside town of Bognor Regis (here). But the operator has today revealed that they’re now expanding their build into the areas of Middleton-on-Sea, Elmer Sand and Flansham.

The expansion should help to complement their existing deployment in the town, which the operator states has already brought full fibre to the areas of Aldwick, North Bersted, South Bersted, Shipney, Hotham and Felpham. But it remains unclear precisely how many premises will be reached by this build and when it will complete.

NOTE: Cityfibre is supported by ISPs such as Vodafone, TalkTalk, Zen Internet, iDNET and others, but they aren’t all live or available in every location yet.

The work supports CityFibre’s wider ambition of covering up to 8 million UK premises (funded by c.£2.4bn in equity, c.£4.9bn debt and c.£800m of BDUK subsidy) – across over 285 cities, towns and villages (c.30% of the UK), although it’s unclear precisely when they will achieve this target (the original goal was for the end of 2025, but their current build + M&A plan may only get them to c.6m). The operator currently covers 3.6 million UK premises (3.3m RFS).

Adrian Smith, CityFibre’s Partnership Manager for Bognor Regis, said:

“Our full fibre rollout in Bognor Regis is progressing well and as we expand into new areas, we’re enabling even more residents and businesses to enjoy the benefits of gigabit speeds and ultra-reliable connectivity. Digital infrastructure underpins so much of modern life so we’re excited to see the impact that our world-class network will bring to the town. We’d like to thank residents for their continued support as we work to complete our network.”

The operator’s main FTTP competitor in the town is Openreach.

    Any news on the abandoned Gloucester roll-out? It’s all gone deathly silent, although now the exchange is added to Openreach’s mega new list, albeit without any hope of timescales, of course.

    CF laid off pretty much all of their build staff in the South West (inc Glos and Cheltenham), so it’ll be a long time, if it happens at all.

    Wish they would actually finish Bognor Regis first before moving on. Loads of properties missed

      I know it’s just copied from their poor quality press release but they areas are Shripney and Elmer not Shipney and Elmer sand. (Elmer Sands is just one private estate in Elmer).

      Progress appears to be swift with the majority of the work taking place where Openreach haven’t got around to FTTP yet which makes sense as they will be the only FTTP option. A family member’s address in Felpham went live last week with the works only being finished a couple of weeks prior.

    As a resident of Middleton-on-Sea, I’ve had FTTP fibre internet from Zoom Internet for well over a year now. Are City Fibre going to compete, or just not service roads with an existing connection. I’ve no connection with Zoom, except as a happy customer. https://zoom.net.uk
