A five year project backed by £80million investment to bring more reliable and faster internet speeds to thousands of homes and businesses across Brighton and Hove has begun.
CityFibre, UK’s largest alternative provider of wholesale fibre network infrastructure and the builder of gigabit cities, has already started building a full fibre digital network that will bring superfast broadband to every home and business in Brighton and Hove within the next five years.
The scheme is expected to generate economic benefits worth more than £300million over the next 15 years and would “transform Brighton and Hove into one of the world’s best digitally connected cities”.
CityFibre said: “As part of an £80 million private investment from CityFibre, Brighton and Hove will benefit from a city-wide full fibre network roll-out.
“This will futureproof the area’s digital connectivity by ensuring its infrastructure can service the speed and bandwidth requirements of both residents and businesses for decades to come.
