CityFibre is the UK’s largest independent Full Fibre platform, was founded in 2011 and now has existing networks in more than 60 towns and cities, including Cambridge as one of the first locations in the UK. Our Full Fibre networks don’t rely on copper wiring, meaning the internet service providers (ISPs) we work with can offer their customers some of the fastest available speeds over our network. To put it simply, we own the tracks – but not the trains. We’ve made a £20 million private investment in Cambridge, and we’re committed to making it one of the best-connected places in Europe.
Following an acquisition of 44km of Full Fibre network, in April 2019 we commenced our ‘fibre-to-the-premises’ build to bring gigabit-speed broadband within reach of nearly every home and business in Cambridge. In December 2019, the first homes received access to our Full Fibre broadband thanks to CityFibre’s partnership with Vodafone. As of 2021, TalkTalk and local ISP partner Air Broadband have joined the network offering their services to residents and we look forward to welcoming more ISP partners to Cambridge’s residents in due course. Nationally, we aim to connect 20 per cent of UK households to our full fibre network by 2025.
