The UK’s leading alternative infrastructure provider, CityFibre, has partnered with Wakefield-based NGC Networks to deliver ultrafast full-fibre connectivity to local businesses.
The partnership with NGC Networks sparks a period of investment into Wakefield’s digital infrastructure as CityFibre look to develop its Wakefield asset acquired in January 2016. NGC Networks is also partnering with CityFibre to deliver gigabit internet speeds to businesses in Bradford and Huddersfield.
CityFibre has already launched full-fibre networks in several other Yorkshire cities including Sheffield, Leeds, York and Hull transforming them into Gigabit Cities. Businesses across the region are connecting to the Gigabit City networks and benefiting from increased productivity enabled by faster speeds, greater bandwidth and more efficient business processes, while communities are experiencing increased business start-up rates and growth.
NGC is well known for delivering high quality and proactive customer support. This partnership will offer businesses a cost-effective internet connectivity solution to meet their technical and commercial requirements.
Commenting on the new partnership with CityFibre, Nikki Guest, network services director at NGC Networks, said:
“Working with CityFibre to bring ultrafast full-fibre internet connectivity to Yorkshire towns and cities is a hugely rewarding project. Our role will be to connect businesses to the Gigabit City networks, which will enable them to take advantage of new technologies, vastly improving their digital capabilities and revolutionising the way they do business.”
Jason Petrou-Brown, senior business development manager for the North at CityFibre, said:
“We are thrilled to be working with NGC Networks as we transform the UK’s digital infrastructure. Yorkshire’s Gigabit City networks are already playing an important role in the growth of the region by boosting businesses efficiencies, encouraging digital skill development and driving investment. Our new partnership with NGC will enable even more businesses in the region to realise the benefits of full-fibre connectivity.”
