CityFibre’s ambition is to build and operate metropolitan full fibre networks across 100 towns and cities in the UK. It’s an ambition founded on two truths – first, that digital infrastructure is the cornerstone of any successful modern economy; second, that although the UK has succeeded in becoming a leading digital economy over the past decade, rising demand for fast and reliable connectivity means that today’s copper network will not be fit to support tomorrow’s digital economy. The UK needs to upgrade to full fibre as a matter of urgency if we are to maintain our competitive advantage in an increasingly digital world.
For this reason, we are strong supporters of the Government’s full fibre goals – over the next decade, to have at least 10 million premises connected to full fibre, with a clear path to national coverage – as well as the Government initiatives aimed at stimulating commercial deployment, such as the Local Full Fibre Networks programme.
