WORK BEGINS ON PROJECT GIGABIT ROLLOUT TO 45,000 HARD TO REACH HOMES ACROSS CAMBRIDGESHIRE
19 February 2024
CityFibre has announced the expansion of its partnership with HighNet to extend its Full Fibre home broadband services to residents in Glasgow and Renfrewshire through its new consumer brand, BrawBand.
BrawBand has already been offering its Gigabit Full Fibre broadband package to residents in Inverness over CityFibre’s new state-of-the-art network since launching in January. Their early success has now triggered the expansion of BrawBand’s rollout to residents in Glasgow and Renfrewshire later in the year.
HighNet has been delivering internet services to businesses across the UK since being founded in 1994, including a range of innovative voice and data solutions, gigabit internet access, hosted telephony, and mobile services. BrawBand was set up to offer a consumer alternative, offering Full Fibre services at competitive prices.
David Alldritt, Technology and Innovation Director at BrawBand, said: “The success of our launch in Inverness has made the decision to expand the BrawBand footprint a very easy one. The co-operation and support we have from CityFibre makes it a real partnership, and we can’t wait to get started on these new networks – it’ll be braw!”
David Cannon, CityFibre’s City Manager for Glasgow, added: “We’re thrilled to welcome BrawBand’s expansion into two of our most strategically important locations. Glasgow is our single biggest build in the UK, and we are making excellent progress rolling out our network in Renfrewshire since beginning work there last year.
“We look forward to BrawBand serving the community in these locations in the years to come, as we believe Full Fibre holds the key to powering future economic growth and aiding economic recovery from the pandemic.”
With network projects in over 60 cities and construction underway to reach up to 8 million homes
