British full fibre provider CityFibre has announced the start of work on the rollout of its fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) infrastructure in Slough, Berkshire. In a press release regarding the development, the operator noted that construction work has officially commenced in Slough’s Trading Estate area, with the rest of the town set to follow. It was noted that VolkerSmart Technologies is delivering the construction programme on the fibre provider’s behalf, using modern build techniques to deploy the network quickly. The team is also working closely with CityFibre, Slough Borough Council and local communities to manage disruption and ensure a fast and successful rollout, with residents reportedly being kept informed by mailings ahead of works in their streets.
As part of a GBP24 million (USD31 million) investment in the town from CityFibre, Slough is ultimately expected to benefit from a town-wide full fibre network rollout, with residents interested in connecting to the network when it is complete now able to pre-register their interest.
