Full fibre from Vodafone arrives in Aberdeen
The Vodafone Gigafast roll-out to date has been focussed on Milton Keynes, but the second area which is Aberdeen now has its first premises with the ability to order the service.
The Cummings Park and Middlefield areas of Aberdeen appear to be the first part of Aberdeen where the full fibre Gigafast service with speed options from 100 Mbps to 900 Mbps are available (download speeds are same as upload speeds). The footprint is pretty small at 1,367 premises but this has doubled the FTTP footprint in Aberdeen from 1.11% to 2.25% and no doubt further roads will appear shortly.
There are more places where CityFibre and Vodafone are building their way towards 1 million premises of full fibre and once there is half a dozen areas with live premises and more being built the numbers will start ticking towards the magic million much faster.
For anyone chasing the statistics, while these latest Vodafone postcodes are in our checkers the effect on the statistics won't be made public until later in the week.
