Fibrecity, part of fibre-through-sewers company H2O Networks has announced the first thirty homes will be connected to its 100Mbps fibre network in Bournemouth by the end of March. This is one of a few true "fibre-to-the-home" (FTTH) services that will see the fibre optic cable being built all the way to the building providing a future-proof infrastructure.
The company has been running a campaign over the last few months to connect those around its fibres to the network ready for its lightning speed service which involves cutting a 'micro trench' 2cm wide and 6-15cm deep to the edge of the property making the premises 'fibre ready'.
"This is an exciting development for Fibrecity. Since its launch last year, the initiative has progressed according to plan and is on schedule to be completed by 2010. We are in a very strong position and are having positive discussions with a number of key content providers and that can provide wholesale access to Fibrecity customers."Elfed Thomas, CEO, H2O Networks Group
The Scottish city of Dundee will be the next to benefit with work starting this summer to roll out a fibre network.
