A £30 million project that aims to bring superfast broadband to every household in the city is coming to Peterborough. The first streets to get the service are Elmfield Road, Garton End Road, Pyecroft, Airedale Close, Isherwood Close, Bettles Close and Park Terrace.
The project is carried out by CityFibre and is expected to go live later this year. It will then be rolled out across the city in the next two years.
Andy Starnes, head of city development at CityFibre, said: “We’re at a really exciting stage of our fibre-to-the-premises roll out in Peterborough as the build work gets underway. Peterborough has worked hard to establish itself as a digital leader and has already been recognised globally for Smart City initiatives.”
“We also know from a recent study we commissioned with economic consultancy Regeneris that wider Smart City enablement, from home automation technologies to smart energy networks and intelligent transportation systems, could add as much as £54 million to Peterborough’s economy as well as many more positive impacts across the city.”
"Full fibre connectivity sits at the heart of Peterborough City Council’s vision and we look forward to seeing how the city is transformed when full fibre connectivity is made available city-wide.”
