Ultrafast fibre broadband infrastructure plans have been announced today that will benefit a number of towns and cities in East and West Sussex. This morning, CityFibre, a national fibre network provider, revealed that 36 more towns and cities will benefit from delivery of full fibre connectivity services as part of their £4bn Gigabit City Investment Programme.
Today’s announcement includes a number of towns in Sussex including:
- Bognor Regis
- Brighton & Hove
This builds on a previous announcement that included Adur & Worthing where the roll out of services is already under way.
CityFibre have committed to an accelerated build programme with £1.5bn in network construction contracts to be awarded by July 2020. Overall, it is estimated that the roll out programme will unlock some 5,000 construction jobs and £85 billion in local economic growth.
Availability of full fibre is an exciting development for the county. Businesses will benefit from cost effective reliable connectivity offering speeds from 100Mbit/s to 10Gbit/s and increased productivity from ultrafast access to cloud services. The presence of full fibre is essential for delivery of 5G and will undoubtedly accelerate the roll out of leading edge services including mobile, autonomous vehicles and Internet of Things (IoT). Homes will also benefit from ultrafast broadband packages offering speeds up to 1Gbit/s, available at competitive prices from a range of providers.
CloudConnX have a long standing relationship with CityFibre and will continue to work closely with them to spearhead roll out of digital services in the aforementioned towns and cities. We will be making some further announcements shortly about these exciting developments. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us via email at .
