100% pure fibre services to transform productivity and support business growth in Bournemouth

Businesses are now able to take advantage of CityFibre’s pure fibre network in Bournemouth, as the UK fibre infrastructure provider launches Gigabit-speed business services in the town. Such speeds transform businesses, delivering greatly increased efficiency and competitiveness and enable huge growth potential.

“Following its successful launch in York, we are delighted to extend our Internet Leased Line services to businesses in Bournemouth, to enable them to benefit from the most advanced connectivity available in the world,” says Rob Hamlin, Director of Business Development at CityFibre. “With this service, customers are able to employ more efficient working methods, such as cloud-computing, advanced teleconferencing, real-time communications and voice over IP (VoIP), and transfer huge files and data in seconds. These services transform workplaces, increasing employee efficiency and job satisfaction.”

Delivered over CityFibre’s 100% pure fibre network, its Internet Leased Line services provide the ultimate in enterprise-grade connectivity - a dedicated symmetrical Gigabit-speed internet service, with virtually limitless capacity and incredibly low latency. Un-contended access and guaranteed bandwidth ensure the service never slows down. With reliability of service critical for many businesses today, CityFibre’s committed Service Level Agreement ensures access to crucial business data and systems at all times.

CityFibre already owns and operates the UK’s largest Fibre-to-the-Home network in Bournemouth, with its Internet service provider, Gigler, offering Gigabit-speed broadband services to over 21,000 homes. To support smaller businesses in Bournemouth who also want to take advantage of transformational Gigabit speeds, Gigler will be extending its services to businesses located on its network, launching a business broadband product which will enable them accelerate their growth potential.

Greg Mesch, Chief Executive Officer at CityFibre commented: “Bournemouth is a fantastic location for business, and the launch of these services will enable the business community to thrive. The extension of our Gigler service ensures that businesses in Bournemouth, no matter their size, will have the opportunity to access Gigabit-speed services which enable businesses to compete both now and in the future, against companies from all over the world.

“CityFibre has invested heavily in the town of Bournemouth to transform it into a ‘Gigabit Town’. We are working closely with Bournemouth Borough Council to deliver the connectivity it needs to provide services to the town as efficiently as possible and we look forward to continuing to support the local economy through involvement and sponsorship of local events, such as the Bournemouth Air Festival 2013 and the Silicon Beach 2013 conference.”
