There is still no sign of progress on Bournemouth's incomplete 100Mb fibre broadband rollout, it has been reported.

According to ISPreview.co.uk, the seaside resort's Fibrecity project remains mothballed, three months after the i3 Group sold its interest in the initiative to a consortium led by Greg Mesch.

The news provider reported that existing City Fibre Holdings customers have been without broadband services since February, and no indication has been given as to when they will be restored.

Many subscribers in connected areas of Bournemouth were already suffering extended outages before they were informed of the service suspension.

ISPreview.co.uk commented that the future is looking "increasingly bleak" for the 100Mb broadband scheme, particularly with Virgin Media launching a rival super-fast service.

Dundee in Scotland was also set to benefit from a 100Mb fibre broadband rollout under the original Fibrecity plans.
