Cityfibre has announced that two ISPs (Exa Networks and JSPC Computer Services) have been approved to provide education and business connectivity services over their forthcoming Gigabit capable fibre optic (FTTP / Ethernet) network in West Sussex, which is being built as part of a new contract with the county council.

The project was actually one of the first to be awarded under the Government’s £190m Local Full Fibre Network (LFFN) challenge fund during May 2018. As part of that deal, which has a total lifetime value of £52.7m, Cityfibre will construct a new “future-proof full-fibre network” to connect 152 council sites in Bognor Regis, Burgess Hill, Chichester, Crawley, Haywards Heath, Horsham, Littlehampton, Shoreham and Worthing.

Construction of the new network is anticipated to begin in August 2018, with the first connections expected to be activated during early 2019. Under today’s deal JSPC Computer Services, in partnership with specialist education and business ISP, Exa Networks, will be able to connect schools and businesses to the new ultra-fast service, DarkLight, as they come within reach of it.

I think depending on how the first fibre products perform via selling with Vodafone, CityFibre could be a major rival to the other network builders. They seem to be spending millions buying up all the dark fibre around.
