Fujitsu signs on to build broadband network in York

Japanese tech firm Fujitsu has been chosen to partner with CityFibre Infrastructure Holdings Plc to build a broadband network in York.

CityFibre, an operator of fibre optic infrastructure in UK towns and cities, and Fujitsu will work together in the first phase of deployment of a city-wide Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) network to deliver broadband speeds of 1 Gigabit (1000 Mbps) direct to homes and businesses in York.

The contract was awarded by the new joint venture company established earlier this year by Sky, TalkTalk and CityFibre.

Fujitsu was, appording to CityFibre, selected for its in-depth knowledge and experience of delivering networks for Tier 1 Operators in the UK and abroad, as well as its ability to build networks at scale. Network planning is well advanced and the first technology and construction activities aimed at optimising deployment speed, cost and quality are commencing in late October.

Fujitsu will undertake all of the build activities including detailed network planning, civil and network construction, testing and interconnection of the FTTP network.
