CityFibre Starts to Fix the Stalled Fibre Optic Broadband Network in Bournemouth

Posted: 10th Jun, 2011 By: MarkJ
fibre optic cable i3groupcityfibre holdings ukCityFibre Holdings has officially begun work to "stabilise and repair" the unfinished and 1Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Home ( FTTH ) broadband ISP network in Bournemouth, which it acquired from Fibrecity (i3 Group) during January 2011.

The CEO of CityFibre, Greg Mesch, said:

"Our first priority is to stabilise the network and make sure that all roadworks are repaired, so that by December there will be 20,000 homes passed that will be ready to receive services.

CityFibre is building a next generation open access, passive fibre optic network - this ‘open access’ architecture is also the model that Google has adopted for its first large scale fibre city in the US.

I want to be clear that as an infrastructure builder, CityFibre will not be delivering services directly to end-users. The network is being built to provide a platform for any provider that wants to offer reliable, superfast services to its customers."

According to CityFibre, the longer term plan for Bournemouth is to start building out new infrastructure in January 2012 and CityFibre hopes to pass all homes in the town by mid-2013. The firm aims to prove their credentials in Bournemouth before expanding out to build subsequent FTTH networks in secondary towns and cities across the UK.

Meanwhile local residents are likely to have mixed feelings and will be hoping that the work is of a better quality than the previous attempt, which caused more than a few angry complaints over damaged pavements and general disruption. Many of their original customers have also switched over to rival providers, such as Virgin Media UK, after services were suspended earlier this year (here).
