Full steam ahead for York's 1Gbps fibre-optic network - Network Cables

CityFibre is to further expand its 1Gbps ultra-fast fibre network in York, following a successful initial deployment phase.

The company, which specialises in fibre-to-the-premises connections, is working with broadband providers Sky and TalkTalk on the project.

The joint venture will see CityFibre carry out the network infrastructure work, and the two telecoms operators provide ultra-fast internet and phone services using its fibre-optic cables.

Broadband services are set to go live later in 2015 for thousands of homes and businesses, with more gaining access to the 1Gbps network at a later date.

CityFibre explained that the first phase of the rollout project focused on validating key network design principles, engineering processes and deployment economics.

It said that the results have been encouraging, meaning it is ready to accelerate and increase the scale of the York fibre-optic rollout.

CityFibre said it will continue to develop and test the optimal fibre-to-the-premises deployment methods and the ability to scale rollouts effectively.

Greg Mesch, chief executive officer at CityFibre, said his firm is "really pleased" with what has been accomplished so far as part of the project

He noted that, together, Sky, TalkTalk and CityFibre have validated a network design for true ultra-fast broadband.

This will allow next-generation telecoms services to be delivered directly to end-users, without the need for a copper link anywhere between the telephone exchange and broadband router.

"This next phase will accelerate the deployment and will further help to determine the scalability of the infrastructure," Mr Mesch added.

"Without the bottlenecks that exist in traditional networks, an ultra-fast fibre infrastructure will futureproof a city, offering superior quality of service and higher speeds as demand for bandwidth increases."
