Bournemouth's 100Mb fibre broadband rollout is back on track, according to the company in charge of the rollout.

CityFibre Holdings assumed control of the super-fast broadband initiative earlier this year after the i3 Group ran into funding difficulties.

The broadband project was mothballed in a state of part-completion in October 2010, but there is now renewed hope for residents and businesses in the Dorset town.

Speaking to, CityFibre's Chief Operating Officer Mark Collins said reparation work had taken place on pavements where micro-trenching work had left a substandard finish.

"Now that CityFibre owns this network, we have pledged to complete and make good the unfinished or substandard works we have inherited," he stated.

"We are pleased to confirm that we have addressed almost all these issues with the full support and approval of Bournemouth Borough Council."

Mr Collins said Bournemouth residents likely to be affected by any future works will be well informed and all roads and pavements disturbed will be reinstated to the highest standard.
