British pure fibre provider CityFibre has announced that it has inked a strategic supplier agreement with Prysmian Group. Confirming the deal in a press release, CityFibre said that under the ‘multi-million-pound’ deal to supply fibre-optic cable, which is initially for a two year term, Prysmian will begin to supply it with optical cable for both underground and aerial applications ‘soon’.
Commenting, James Thomas, Director of Supply Chain at CityFibre, was cited as saying: ‘Given our fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) ambitions our choice of fibre supplier is critical to us. We are focused on establishing a supply chain that can deliver the high-quality materials we need at scale now and for the future of our rollout. We are delighted to have secured Prysmian, a fibre manufacturer with such a strong reputation, as a strategic supplier for our rollout.’
