A group of 50 homes in the Bournemouth area have become the first addresses to be linked up to the 100Mb Fibrecity network.

Under plans set out by the i3 Group, Bournemouth will be one of 15 cities set to be connected by Fibrecity over the coming months.

According to Elfed Thomas, chief executive and founder of the i3 Group, the residents will feel the benefits of fibre-to-the-home connectivity over the slower fibre-to-the-cabinet networks.

He said: "Fibrecity is the only network that is building a national infrastructure to all homes, both new build and existing properties, that brings fibre into their living room.

"It does not at any point rely on the existing antiquated copper network like BT’s already outdated fibre to the cabinet network."

Enhanced IPTV services is one of the improvements expected to be seen by broadband users taking advantage of Fibrecity's 100Mb access.
