Manchester gets its revived fibre network extended by 5km

A new deal was announced between The Loop and TelecityGrougp which will help Telecity extend its existing superfast broadband network in Manchester. As a result Telecity will extend the present 82 km long fibre network by another 5 km, to serve businesses across the city of Manchester, on a superfast 1 Gbps+ service.

The Loop (Gamma) is based in Trafford Park, and concentrates its service on Greater Manchester. Its network serves the city-centre and reaches out westwards to Eccles, eastwards to Gorton, southwards to Stretford and northwards to Oldham. 77 km of the 82 km long network was first laid out during the Commonwealth Games of 2002, by Atlantic Telecom. After the operator went broke, the network was left neglected until Gamma (The Loop) revived it again. Now the fibre network has added 5 km and provides direct connections between key data centres of the TelecityGroup around locations in Manchester.
