CityFibre to upgrade Coventry's fibre network
LONDON, June 3
LONDON, June 3 (Reuters) - British fibre optic network operator CityFibre said on Tuesday it would upgrade and extend Coventry's superfast broadband network, giving thousands of businesses in the Midlands city access to a gigabit Internet connection.
The company, listed on London's junior AIM market, has acquired a 140 kilometre fibre-optic network commissioned by the city's council six years ago as the foundation of its service.
CityFibre owns and operates fibre networks in cities across Britain, including a gigabyte project in York with broadband providers TalkTalk and BSkyB, two groups that usually use BT's network.
