Homes and businesses in the Abbey, Glebe, Minster, Castle, Carholme and Birchwood wards of Lincoln are now able to access faster and more reliable broadband thanks to a new digital network rollout by CityFibre, the UK’s largest independent provider of full fibre infrastructure. 

CityFibre started the Lincoln build in 2022, making the city one of a growing number of locations in the UK to benefit from a full fibre upgrade. Following this latest milestone, CityFibre’s next area of focus will be Hartsholme.

Bashir Ahmed, CityFibre’s Partnership Manager for Lincoln, said: “Our Lincoln build is at an exciting stage, as more residents are able to benefit from unparalleled digital connectivity.

“We’d like to thank the people of Lincoln for their support as we rollout this critical infrastructure, which will bring with it a boost in productivity, innovation and investment gains not to mention a new era of lag-free gaming, streaming and work.”

Full fibre networks use 100% fibre optics to carry data at light speed all the way from the home to the point of connection. This gives users speeds of up to 2.5 Gbps for upload and download, near limitless bandwidth and reliable connectivity.

In Lincoln customers can already connect to the new network and benefit from full fibre-enabled broadband from a choice of providers, including UK launch partner, Vodafone on selected Vodafone Pro Broadband plans, IDNet, Giganet, Yayzi, Air Broadband, No One and Octaplus, plus other providers.
