Digital transformation for Derby
Bondholder CityFibre has started work on transforming Derby into one of the world’s best digitally-connected cities.
As part of an initial £45m private investment from CityFibre, Derby will benefit from the state-of-the-art full fibre network roll-out. Construction work has officially commenced in the Mackworth area, with Abbey, Mickleover, Allestree and Darley set to follow later this year.
Dominika Walker, CityFibre’s City Manager for Derby, said: “The lockdown has demonstrated how essential a fast, reliable broadband service is for both businesses and residents. Full fibre broadband will help households access all the latest entertainment at lightning speed, but the benefits are far deeper than that – from enabling smart home technology to giving people the freedom to work from home with ease."
