Residents will be able to receive speeds of up to 1Gbps upon its completion.
CityFibre has officially begun work on a full fibre network in the Northern town of Lowestoft.
The £14 million project will see the London-based provider partner up with Lite Access technologies to give local homes and businesses the ability to receive blazingly fast speeds of up to 1Gbps.
Construction is now underway in the Harbour and Normanston areas of the town but it’s not yet known when the project will be completed for the network to go live.
Due to an ongoing deal, Vodafone will be the first provider to offer packages on the network followed by TalkTalk at an unspecified date.
This all forms part of CityFibre’s larger plan which aims to rollout a full fibre gigabit capable network to 1 million premises by the end of 2021.
“Full Fibre connectivity and next generation broadband services will transform the lives of the people in Lowestoft,” said Charles Kitchin, Cityfibre’s City Manager for Lowestoft.
“This goes far beyond simply helping households access the latest entertainment at lightning speed. The benefits are far deeper, from enabling smart home technology to giving people the freedom to work from home with ease.”
