Gigabit Monthly Roundup: what’s been happening in the industry recently
We have now finished October and November is upon us. The end of the year is here, and companies are gearing up for a busy Christmas period.
The network provider has announced they will build a new town-wide network that will bring fast and reliable full fibre-enabled internet services within reach of almost every home and business in Loughborough.
Construction work on the full fibre network in Loughborough will begin in the Storer area of the town. It’s great that OUR provider is expanding their reach and will allow the local residents and businesses of Loughborough to reap the many benefits of full fibre technology.
Our infrastructure provider, CityFibre has been awarded as the winner of the Best Carrier or Network category at the 2022 Comms National Awards, (CNAs). They were also highly commended in the Best Partner Programme (above £10M) award.
This underlines the strength of its full fibre network and continuing rollout programme. We are excited to be working them and look forward to bridging the digital divide across the Midlands.
A new report from Ofcom has found that access to full-fibre broadband has jumped by more than 50 per cent in a year, with FTTTP networks now reaching 11 million homes and 37 per cent of households.
This massive shift found that the pandemic has accelerated a shift towards hybrid working for businesses but there are still 83,000 properties are unable to get a ‘decent’ broadband speed of 10 Mbit/s downloads and 1 Mbit/s upload.
Currently, we can reach 235,000 homes for FTTP and this will be 1.2million by the end of 2024.
