Following their success in Bournemouth and Dundee, Fibrecity Holdings has announced that it will be bringing fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband to another five towns.
The company has said that Derby, Halton (Cheshire), Nottingham, Plymouth and York would all get 100Mbps broadband connection within a year.
Apart from the FTTH roll out, Fibrecity also plans to bring super-fast broadband connections to users in Belfast, Aberdeen, Ipswich, Bristol and Birmingham.
Setting up an array of networks will take time, but the company claims that by the time the roll-out is complete it will be able to offer fast broadband to a million British homes, or four per cent of the population.
Elfed Thomas, chief executive of i3 Group, the company which owns Fibrecity, said: “Today marks another significant step forward in our quest to bring open next-generation internet connectivity to homes across the UK.”
Fibrecity, who use sewer ducts to bring broadband to the users' homes, also indicated that the company might soon start deploying broadband connections though ducts and 'micro trenching'.
