The Fibrecity plan to connect homes and businesses to a high-speed 100Mb broadband network is making steady progress.
Provider the i3 Group has announced that 50 homes have so far been connected to the Fibrecity network in Bournemouth, which is one of the first locations in the UK to receive the cable broadband development.
The 50 homes will be used to showcase the technology and highlight the benefits of the system which offers fibre to the home (FTTH).
Elfed Thomas, founder and Chief Executive of the i3 Group, said: "The FTTH and point-to-point fibre optic networks being built by Fibrecity and H2O Networks means that homes and businesses will benefit from super fast connectivity which far exceeds the government's vision for Digital Britain of a comparatively super slow 2Mb for each household."
The i3 Group has revealed that it is to introduce a Fibrezone in South Ayrshire, similar to the Fibrecity project in Bournemouth, to provide access to customers in the Scottish region. Work is also set to start on a Fibrecity in Dundee.
