British pure fibre provider CityFibre has announced that it is to invest a further GBP19 million (USD26 million) to extend the reach of its infrastructure in the city of Aberdeen. In a press release, the operator noted that, having initially set aside GBP40 million for its work in the city, it is now looking to add additional areas for its network rollout as a result of ‘huge demand for full fibre services’.
According to CityFibre, locations where customers can access services over its network via one of its retail partners comprise: Woodside, Garthdee, Ruthrieston, Mannofield, Kincorth, Broomhill, Cove, Kaimhill, Ferryhill, Northfield, Tillydrone, Rosehill, Hazlehead, Airyhall, Mannofield, Hilton, Seaton and Torry. Meanwhile, other areas which are yet to go live but are set to be included in the network rollout include: Bridge of Don, Bucksburn, Stoneywood, Dyce, Rosemount, Mastrick, Sheddocksley, and some areas of the city centre. The company expects the extended project to be largely complete by the end of 2022.
Commenting, Allan McEwan, CityFibre’s City Manager for Aberdeen, said: ‘We’re making huge strides in delivering full fibre to homes and businesses across Aberdeen, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring our best-in-class network to even more of the city.’
