CityFibre has begun work to bring full fibre network to thousands of homes and businesses in March.
The firm has partnered with Granemore Group in partnership with Fenland District Council and local communities to deliver fast rollout. CityFibre's network will be made available to a range of providers across the United Kingdom to provide consumers with speeds of up to 1,000Mbps and ultra-reliable connectivity.
Leader of Fenland District Council Cllr Chris Boden said: “It is fantastic that CityFibre is now ready to start delivering its £5m infrastructure investment programme in March, which will deliver a town-wide network that will benefit residents, businesses and services alike.
“This is a once in a generation upgrade that will futureproof our network infrastructure at a time when connectivity has never been so important.”
Regional partnership director and CityFibre’s city manager for March Rebecca Stephens added: “This is the start of an exciting new chapter for the town as it gets ready to thrive in the digital age.
“It’s important to remember that any short-term disruption will pay off tremendously in the long-term – once the network’s built, it will serve the community’s connectivity needs for decades to come.”
