The Fibrecity super-fast broadband project, geared at bringing 100Mb web services to urban areas across the UK, should soon be back on track.

Work on the i3 Group's Dundee and Bournemouth schemes ground to a halt recently, but a spokesperson for the company said the project should be back on track in early 2011.

Speaking to ISPreview.co.uk, he said Wessex Water's decision to refuse access to its sewer pipes "has had an impact on the way that we need to deliver the network".

"As the network we have built to-date has passed 50,000 homes, we have taken the decision to focus on connecting customers for a short period before continuing the rest of the rollout," the spokesperson added.

"We are sorry for the disruption, but we just ask that residents bear with us while we connect customers to the network already built."

He said the wider rollout of Fibrecity Bournemouth and Dundee would "get back on track in early 2011", meaning households and businesses in the cities will be able to access super-fast broadband deals.
