CityFibre has connected the first customer to its new network in Cambridgeshire, rolled-out as part of the government’s Project Gigabit programme.

Simon Holden, Group CCO at CityFibre, said: “This is an important milestone for CityFibre and for the hundreds of thousands of hard-to-reach homes and businesses left stranded on legacy copper networks.”

The first customer, based in the village of Grantchester, has been connected by Vodafone.

Rob Winterschladen, Consumer Director, at Vodafone UK, said: “Project Gigabit is a game-changer for rural communities, who can now enjoy the same full fibre benefits of gigabit speeds and improved reliability as those living in cities.”

CityFibre is rolling out its 10Gbps-capable full fibre networks to almost 465,000 hard-to-reach homes through the Project Gigabit programme.
