Build


We’re revolutionising broadband

We don’t just promise faster, more reliable broadband. We build it.

Purpose-building for the data age

We believe everyone should have access to broadband that just works, now and for generations to come.

That’s why at CityFibre, we’re starting from scratch and building a brand new fibre network across the UK that’s up to 25 times faster and 5 times more reliable than basic broadband*.

Five steps from the connection you deserve

Construction

Our build partners will start building works on your street. In most cases, we're outside each home for a few days.

Van

Consideration

We put everything back as we found it. This is often done in stages, so if things don’t look right straight away, rest assured they will very soon.

Laptop

Connection

Once we’ve switched on the network in your street, all that’s left is for you to check which providers use CityFibre technology.

Frequently asked questions

  • We will send you a letter a week before we start building in your area. You can also register your interest and keep up-to-date about our build progress by email.

  • Once we’re done in your street, it will take several weeks to install the fibre and connect it back to our main exchange. We’ll then let you know which of our broadband partners are available in your area so you can enjoy revolutionary broadband. Make sure to sign up with us for progress updates.

  • We’re installing our new fibre network so that you can enjoy faster, more reliable broadband. We may need to dig up the pavement outside your home to install the new cables, street cabinets or utility poles. Watch our construction video to see how we do it.

  • We understand that street works can be disruptive, and we work closely with local councils to minimise this. Through our mandatory service update communications, our aim is to keep you and the local community informed about why we are building our network, what it means to you and the different stages of our network build.

  • The direct mails we send when your property is ready to connect, explain some of the long-term benefits that access to our full fibre network might bring to you, and advise how you can connect through a broadband provider.

    If you’d prefer to be removed from our mailing list and not receive direct mails from us in the future, please complete this form. Please note that removal from our list could take up to 30 days to become effective.

  • Yes. During the CityFibre network build process, we have our teams carry out door-knocking, to explain what is happening and how our network is built, they will also be able to advise on the benefits of full fibre network and answer any questions you may have.

    Be aware of scammers! Our team will always be wearing CityFibre branded uniforms, carry ID badges and have a leaflet which they will leave with you. The leaflet explains how you can register for updates if you are interested in connecting to our network with one of the available broadband providers for your area.

    We will never ask for your credit card or bank details as we don’t sell broadband directly to households.
