Our independent, wholesale-only focus means every pound you spend with us, does not directly or indirectly benefit your strategic competitors. A partnership with CityFibre means your success is our success.
Our investment in both local teams and infrastructure, combined with long term relationships with Local Authorities and key city stakeholders ensures we provide a smooth delivery on projects and a great experience to you.
Our networks are modern and purpose-built from scratch, enabling us to make far reaching carbon-smart decisions up front, benefit from the latest power efficient technology and manage the environment in which that technology lives to optimise its lifecycle and reduce waste.
Our network is built to serve entire communities across the UK. We undertake pre-planning to serve all known mobile base station locations and our near-ubiquitous dense fibre coverage means you can connect small cells at every future location, without incurring excessive network build charges.
"A competitive fibre backhaul market is critical for the fast and efficient rollout of 5G. CityFibre are aggressively rolling out fibre across Britain and our strategic partnership with them will use the UK’s largest 5G spectrum portfolio to deliver the fastest 5G network nationwide."
"Widespread availability of fibre is key to the success of 5G mobile and home broadband. Dark fibre provides limitless capacity, greater flexibility and ensures costs can be controlled by mobile operators as 5G traffic grows"
Stephen Lerner, General Counsel & Regulatory Affairs Director
"We're delighted to work with CityFibre. The technology will connect the 5G Small Cells network, providing next-gen connectivity to deliver digital services across the city.

"This pilot network for wholesale, 5G-ready small cell infrastructure is a massive step forward for mobile and fixed wireless connectivity in London. As demand for data increases exponentially, the pressures on networks will continue to grow and densification using street furniture and small cells is critical to deliver the network of the future."
David Crawford, Managing Director
Unlike other Dark Fibre providers, dense local access Dark Fibre RAN backhaul is fundamental to our business. We make our products and services available to the market while seeking ongoing feedback from our customers to capture and align our roadmap to future requirements through a mix of bespoke and standard solutions that help MNOs densify their network.
Our Dark Fibre enables operators to move away from opex based services, gain control of costs for increasing bandwidths and support future RAN architectures like CRAN, VRAN and ORAN while achieving the lowest latency needed to underpin the latest 5G specifications (3GPP).
We believe that Dark Fibre is an integral part of the MNO network architecture and future-proofs the network. Such a cornerstone element of the network must be secured on a long-term basis to achieve the full economic and operational advantages.
Our state-of-the-art Fibre Exchanges (FEXs) provide access to over 150 Edge Co-Lo facilities in the heart of our cities, with multiple exchanges per city, designed to offer a low latency 5G future and a better edge experience.
CityFibre partnered with BAI Communications (BAI), a global communications infrastructure provider, and Sunderland City Council to support the delivery of a new 5G small cell network.
CityFibre has been awarded a multi-million-pound contract by Three to connect an additional 1,300 key mobile masts across 59 towns and cities.
CityFibre has been selected by mobile network operator Three as a preferred provider of backhaul connectivity outside London
