CityFibre Vodafone Gigafast roll-out passes 250,000 premises
CityFibre and its Gigabit city roll-out has an aim of 1 million premises passed in 2021 and today our tracking of where the Vodafone Gigafast service is available to order has hit 250,933 premises.
The cities on our maps so far are Aberdeen, Bournemouth, Cambridge, Coventry, Edinburgh, Huddersfield, Leeds, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Peterborough, Southend and Stirling. There are more cities where construction is underway but as yet we've seen any live properties.
The 250,933 excludes the TalkTalk FibreNation footprint which was acquired by CityFibre, we track those figures seperately for the build that is underway in York and Dewsbury. The FibreNation footprint we know about is 48,733 premises big.
In terms of whether the 1 million will be reached if a build rate of 10,000 premises a week is needed going forward, which with the growing number of areas under construction seems possible, i.e. as has been seen with the various FTTP roll-outs it takes time to scale to deliver in volume.
As is always the case the roll-outs start pretty small in each area, so if you have the Gigafast service or have ordered it and the install is booked but you are not showing on our map get in touch with a postcode and we will take a look and update our databases and maps.
