Dundee Residents Offered FREE 100Mbps Broadband Connections

Posted: 21st Jan, 2009 By: MarkJ
H2O Networks fibre optic (FTTH) Fibrecity project in Dundee has invited local residents and businesses to connect to its city-wide network for free via an opt-in campaign, which will run over the next 12 months.

The fibre optic network, which is being built at the expense of Fibrecity Holdings for £30 million, will allow more than 70,000 households and businesses in the City to benefit from next generation services including super fast broadband of up to 100Mbps:

Elfed Thomas, CEO, H2O Networks Group said: “We are leading the way where other, far bigger organisations have failed to deliver. Broadband speeds are often slow and unreliable and the Government has already voiced its concerns about this. Fibrecity Dundee will allow businesses and homes to use media rich services including video and IPTV which require large bandwidth.”

Fibrecity Dundee will use a proportion of Scottish Water’s waste water network to lay the fibre optic cable across the city and aims to be Scotland’s largest fibre to the home (FTTH) network. It follows similar progress in Bournemouth earlier this week (here).

Eligible premises will receive an invite through the post which will detail how they can sign up to this pioneering project. They include:

  • Fill in the tear off slip on the invite letter and return to 3 The Parks, Newton Le Willows, Merseyside, WA12 0JQ

  • Visit http://www.fibrecity.eu and fill in the online form

  • Call freephone 0800 95 4 20 20

  • Visit the exhibition at the Wellgate Centre from 26th January to 24th May

  • A team of Fibrecity advisors will also be out and around the City to answer any queries that residents and businesses may have.
Work has already started on Fibrecity Bournemouth which has seen a large number of residents and businesses opt in to the initiative over the last couple of months. Work on Fibrecity Dundee will start this summer and will take approximately two years to roll out.
