CityFibre launches ‘True Gig’ symmetrical broadband product to enable simpler consumer advertising
19 October 2023
CityFibre, the UK’s largest independent full fibre platform, and Octaplus, the London-based consumer Internet Service Provider (ISP) established earlier this year, have agreed a partnership that will see Octaplus make exclusive long-term volume commitments across CityFibre’s full fibre network.
Octaplus services are now available in every location where CityFibre has designated homes as being ‘ready for service’. CityFibre’s network currently passes more than 2m premises, and over 1.8m of those homes are ready for customers to order full fibre broadband, with a connection in as little as five working days.
Gladstone Gonsalves, Founder of Octaplus, said: “We are thrilled to be working with CityFibre, the second biggest full fibre provider in the UK. We are excited to supercharge homes and businesses with gigabit connectivity all around the country. With customer service at the heart of our operations, we want to make internet services affordable for homes and businesses and put money back into the customer’s pocket with better offerings and faster speeds.”
George Wareing, Chief Sales Officer at CityFibre, said: “The addition of Octaplus to our network and our growing consumer ISP offering is great news for consumers seeking more choice and better services. Our rollout is unlocking Britain’s potential in the data age and this new generation of ISPs is helping to shape a more competitive landscape, which can only be a good thing.”
With network projects in over 60 cities and construction underway to reach up to 8 million homes
