Fibre optic infrastructure specialist i3 Group has signed a contract with Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe Ltd to provide homes in the UK with super-fast broadband.
Under the multi-million pound agreement, Fujitsu will take responsibility for laying the infrastructure, which will connect up to one million UK homes to the Fibrecity network by 2014.
"Our Fibrecity network is the UK's largest fibre to the home initiative and we're delighted to have signed Fujitsu to support us with the rollout of our technology," said i3 Group's chief executive officer Elfed Thomas.
Fujitsu is to start rolling out the fibre optic network to 68,000 homes in Dundee this month.
Earlier this week, broadband provider BT announced that it would soon be heading to Edmonton to promote the benefits of super-fast internet services.
The BT Infinity double-decker bus will park up at Edmonton Green Shopping Centre on July 30th, giving locals the chance to come and learn more about its broadband packages.
