CityFibre partners with Wakefield firm

01 August 2017

Alternative infrastructure provider CityFibre has partnered with a Wakefield-based business to make ultrafast full-fibre connectivity available to local businesses.

NGC Networks is partnering with CityFibre to develop its Wakefield broadband infrastructure, which was acquired in January 2016.

The two companies are aiming to provide gigabit internet speeds to businesses in Bradford and Huddersfield.

CityFibre has already launched full-fibre networks in Sheffield, Leeds, York and Hull.

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."
