Four bits of last mile news and one federal contract of interest to keep up with:

CityFibre has finished up work on its primary build in Bury St Edmunds, now passing 16,000 homes or about 81% of the town’s residential footprint. That town name is one of those you have to read a couple times to figure out which words are part of it, but it’s in Suffolk about 25 miles east of Cambridge for those who were reaching for their maps. Construction began in March 2020 and its completion follows delivery on a contact for Suffolk County Council for connectivity to more than 600 sites.

Breezeline polished off two separate FTTH expansion projects this week. In New Hampshire they completed construction of 525 route miles of fiber in Somersworth, Madbury, Dover, Durham and Concord, bringing 45K homes and businesses within reach. And in West Virginia they finished up a 283 route mile build in Morgantown, Star City, Westover, Granville, Cheat Lake and Brookhaven, reaching another 40K. In both cases they have rolled out TV service as well.

Accelecom picked up an enterprise connectivity deal in Louisville KY. They are providing mission critical connectivity to V-Soft Consulting’s new corporate headquarters, enabling company operations as well as their on-site innovation lab. Accelecom’s footprint spans much of the states of Kentucky and Georgia.

And MetTel is teaming up with Mission Critical Solutions for a bit of federal business. The two are providing managed network and cloud contact center services to an unnamed ‘major U.S. government civilian agency’. Ths solution incorporates Genesys Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS), AI-powered insight tools from SuccessKPI, cloud migration services, Microsoft Teams and Amazon Connect Unified Communication as a Service (UCaaS).
