Households and businesses in Bournemouth are finally able to take advantage of 100Mb broadband, following the much-delayed launch of fibre-to-the-home services.
CityFibre Holdings has been working to complete the network originally started by the i3 Group, which mothballed the project last autumn after running into financial difficulties.
Services have now resumed, with an initial 24,000 homes able to sign up for ultra-fast fibre broadband, and 14,000 more set to follow in the near future.
Mark Collins, Chief Commercial Officer at CityFibre, said the firm had promised the residents and businesses of Bournemouth it would complete the unfinished work of its predecessors, and this commitment has been kept.
"It's imperative to CityFibre that we manage this network responsibly," he stated.
"We are really pleased to be now moving onto the next stage and that our first service provider partner Fibreband are launching their services."
Adam Troman, General Manager of Fibreband, said the firm was "extremely impressed" with the work done by CityFibre to make the 100Mb network a reality in Bournemouth.
"We look forward to being CityFibre's first service provider partner and have high hopes for its continued rollout throughout the town in 2012," he added.
