CityFibre has unveiled plans to launch a fibre network aimed at enterprises in the UK city of Bristol.

The company, one of a number of infrastructure providers marketing themselves as an alternative to BT’s Openreach division, is bringing 82km of “pure fibre” to market.

The network infrastructure belonged to KCOM, from which CityFibre acquired assets last December.

Local ISP Triangle Networks, which has signed up as launch partner, will begin marketing the new service next month.

CityFibre said Triangle had “hundreds” of existing customers in the city and that the new network was “well placed to serve a large number of businesses” moving forward.

Paul Anslow, MD at Triangle Networks said: “As this is a pure fibre network, Triangle will be launching services that are ‘Gigabit-speed-as-standard’, far faster than those possible on ‘Fibre to the cabinet’ networks that are still restricted by the limitations of copper wires.

“This enables businesses to stop concerning themselves with bandwidth restrictions and start to make the most of new ways of working that will improve their experience and drive the bottom line.”

CityFibre unveiled Scotland’s Glasgow as the latest city to benefit from its infrastructure last November.

Greg Mesch, CEO of CityFibre said: “Less than a month after announcing our acquisition of KCOM’s networks, we have begun to commercialise them.

“As the UK’s largest alternative infrastructure provider, this is the first of many new Gigabit City launches to come on our expanded footprint of 36 cities across the UK.”
