CityFibre has so far secured wayleaves to connect over a million homes owned by local authorities and housing associations.

This has been achieved through collaboration with housing associations including Places for People, Thirteen Group, and Sheffield City Council.

The wayleaves enable households to upgrade to fibre without personally securing permission from their landlord.

Sanjay Sudra, Head of Wayleave Field Services at CityFibre said: “World-class digital infrastructure is no longer a luxury, it is now an essential utility that everyone needs to have access to.

“Working closely with forward-thinking housing associations and local authorities, CityFibre is helping to ensure more people have access to these services, whether they own or rent their home.”
