LONDON – Residents and businesses across Norwich will benefit from a £50m digital infrastructure project with the build set to begin in early September.
CityFibre, the UK's largest independent full fibre platform, is mobilising ahead of work starting and has now appointed a contractor to deliver the build programme. This will see full fibre connectivity laid across Norwich, giving almost every home and business in the city access to the game-changing technology.
Utilities specialist Telec Networks will serve as contractor and will use a range of construction methods while working in close partnership with Norwich City Council and local communities to deliver a fast rollout while minimising disruption to residents.
Norwich is one of a growing number of locations in the UK to benefit from CityFibre's £4bn Gigabit City investment programme which will bring new and better broadband infrastructure within reach of up to eight million homes and businesses nationwide.
To spearhead the project, CityFibre has appointed Charles Kitchin as City Manager. As City Manager, Charles will be the main point of contact between stakeholders and the CityFibre team, ensuring the project continues to be implemented with minimal disruption to Norwich communities.
