Fujitsu inks £50m deal to lay 'gigabit' cable for telco CityFibre

Privately-funded FTTP for Blighty's cities

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Fujitsu has inked an engineering deal worth £50m with CityFibre Holdings to roll out cabling on behalf of the telco.

The Japanese tech giant previously worked with CityFibre to help it build a 103km (64-mile) fibre optic network around the City of York.

CityFibre said in November last year that it was splashing up to £500m on expanding its fibre-to-the-premises network.

The company is hoping to reach around 1 million homes and 50,000 businesses with its "gigabit capable" services in the privately funded venture.

It said that Fujitsu would upgrade the necessary infrastructure for the carrier to lay cabling throughout what it described as "second-tier cities".

CityFibre's boss Greg Mesch said: “Fujitsu’s credentials in network deployment could not be stronger and few companies have as much knowledge of UK telecoms infrastructure.

"They are uniquely positioned to assist CityFibre in meeting our ambitious objectives across the entire fibre infrastructure spectrum, from mobile back haul to metro networks and fibre-to-the-premises." ®
