The city of Peterborough in eastern England has a newly operational core fiber network to get use to using. CityFibre has completed the construction of its 90km buildout there, starting off by hooking up 107 public sector sites for the city's IT services arm, Serco.
The project was completed in 11 months, and now moves into a phase of lateral expansion. About 100 business customers have already signed up through the service provider partners CityFibre has been working with. Extensions of the fiber into business parks in Fengate, Lynch Wood, Cygnet Park and Orton Southgate are already underway, bringing another thousand or so within easy reach.
It also perhaps frees up some resources for CityFibre, which has a lot of metro fiber buildouts on its platter right now. Among others, they've got a longstanding project still underway in York, a recently acquired one in Coventry, a big one up north in Aberdeen to work through, and the newest and largest one in Edinburgh just getting started.
