Stirling is the next 'Gigabit City' project of Cityfibre

Tuesday, January 17th 2017

Cityfibre, the pure fibre-optic network provider, has confirmed that their 4th Gigabit City project is Stirling, in Scotland. Cityfibre will shortly be rolling out a new FTTP-based Public Service Network (PSN) that subsequently will be expanded to include local businesses too.


Cityfibre plans to deploy initially 20km of fibre-optic cable across the city, to connect the 33 sites of the local authority. The £1.7 million deal is supported by a 7-year contract with MLL Telecom, the Buckinghamshire based managed service provider.


The Public Service Network again seems to be forming the infrastructure for further expansion later into more areas of Stirling, which could include connecting the mobile masts here and the CCTV or Wi-Fi service systems. Above all, this the network builder has promised to extend the network over time, to serve the majority of the nearly 3,000 businesses, providing them with Gigabit broadband and Ethernet-based services, that are affordable.


CityFibre's CEO, Greg Mesch, said they are thrilled to brig the numerous benefits of pure fibre to the public sector and the businesses in Stirling, which is their 4th 'Gigabit City' in Scotland. The CEO was also pleased to add to the growing number of service provider partners, MLL Telecom, and were looking forward to work together in their 41st 'Gigabit City'.
