Gigabit Monthly Roundup

Gigabit Ultra Reliable Full Fibre Broadband

Gigabit Monthly Roundup: what’s been happening in the industry recently 

We have now finished November, and Christmas is only around the corner! Companies are planning for what is to come in 2023! 

City Fibre Racing into 2023: Enough cabiling in Northampton to lap Silverstone 143 times.   

The UK’s largest independent full-fibre platform, City Fibre, has laid a staggering 840km of full-fibre internet cables through Northampton, as part of its £40m plan to future-proof the town’s connectivity.    

This means that there is enough full fibre cabling to speed through 143 laps of the nearby, Silverstone Circuit. It’s amazing to see how City Fibre keeps on expanding their range to bring new benefits to different regions. 

Blackpool set for massive CityFibre Boost 

City Fibre has announced they will build a £283M new, region-wide network that will bring ultrafast and reliable full fibre-enabled internet services. 

The move demonstrates just how powerful and essential full fibre is as a catalyst for growth and a platform for innovation and investment. 

Gigabit Broadband Covers 99% of Newly Built UK Homes 

The latest H1 2022 report into the broadband coverage of new build UK homes reveals that 99.03% of houses constructed during the first half of 2022 were connected to a gigabit-capable network, using full fibre FTTP and Hybrid Fibre Coax (HFC).  

HFC is another exciting technology and is a cable that combines fibre optic and coaxial cable-based transmission modes into one unified path. Meaning less mess of cable management clutter and quicker speeds. All in One Place! It’s one of many endless possibilities that come with Gigabit.
