CityFibre Unleashes the Future of Connectivity:
Introducing the UK’s First Wholesale 2.5Gbps Symmetrical Broadband
In an era where digital connectivity is the lifeblood of progress, CityFibre has emerged as a trailblazer in the telecommunications landscape, pioneering groundbreaking advancements in broadband services.
The recent announcement of the UK’s first wholesale 2.5Gbps symmetrical broadband product has sent ripples of excitement through the industry, promising to revolutionise how we experience the internet.
The Power of Symmetrical Speeds
CityFibre’s new 2.5Gbps product, slated for release to its ISP customers in a phased manner, is set to redefine what it means to have lightning-fast internet.
What sets this technology apart is its symmetrical nature, which ensures that upload and download speeds are perfectly balanced.
In the world of traditional asymmetrical connections, upload speeds have often been a bottleneck, hindering activities like video conferencing, cloud computing, and content creation. But with symmetrical broadband, these limitations are cast aside, unleashing a seamless, lag-free online experience.
The Promise of 10Gbps and Beyond
Not satisfied with merely delivering 2.5Gbps symmetrical speeds, CityFibre’s new platform has the capability to support even higher symmetrical speeds of up to 10Gbps. This is a testament to their commitment to remaining at the forefront of technological advancement.
Moreover, with a design that easily allows for future upgrades to 50G PON, CityFibre is laying the foundation for an internet ecosystem that can evolve alongside the ever-growing demands of the digital world.
Expanding Coverage and Accessibility
CityFibre’s vision extends far beyond impressive speeds; it is about creating a connected and inclusive society. By the end of 2023, CityFibre aims to deploy its XGS-PON equipment into over 90 per cent of its fibre exchanges, making the 2.5Gbps product available to around 20 percent of its ready-for-service footprint.
Currently standing at an impressive 2.5 million properties, this ambitious expansion plan demonstrates their unwavering commitment to bringing cutting-edge connectivity to homes and businesses across the UK.
Greg Mesch, the CEO of CityFibre, has been a driving force behind this transformative initiative. He believes that the launch of the UK’s fastest and most cost-effective connectivity products is a testament to the power of infrastructure competition among leased line providers.
“By working closely with our ISP partners to bring symmetrical multi-gigabit broadband services to market today, and following up with businesses, the UK is now poised to unlock its full potential without being hindered by outdated network infrastructures,” said the CEO.
Empowering the Digital Future
The implications of CityFibre’s new symmetrical broadband service go beyond faster internet connectivity for homes and businesses. It sets the stage for a future where transformative technologies like smart cities, telemedicine, and advanced educational resources can thrive.
With the launch of this consumer-centric product, CityFibre is empowering individuals and communities to access low-carbon, high-quality connectivity—a crucial stepping stone toward building a truly digital society.
Smooth Transition for All
CityFibre understands that a seamless transition is essential for existing and potential customers. For areas still awaiting XGS-PON deployment, multi-gig speeds will be available via a 2Gbps/1Gbps asymmetric GPON product in the coming months.
As CityFibre continues its expansion, these services will be effortlessly migrated to the XGS-PON platform, ensuring that all customers can reap the benefits of symmetrical speeds in due course.
Embracing the Digital Horizon
CityFibre’s unwavering dedication to pushing the boundaries of connectivity is a testament to the human spirit of progress. By providing a wholesale 2.5Gbps symmetrical consumer broadband product, they are sowing the seeds for a future where businesses can flourish, individuals can thrive, and communities can come together in unprecedented ways.
As we move forward into this new era of connectivity, Connect2 celebrates CityFibre as one of our ISP partners with a vision and innovation. They have given the UK the tools to forge ahead into the digital frontier, transforming the way we live, work, and connect.
