Gigabit Cities

We’re in the middle of a digital revolution. Across the UK, the rise of new technologies and cloud services are radically transforming the way we live and work. Government, businesses and citizens are increasingly aware of the importance of digital infrastructure. Our digital connectivity is either a barrier to growth and innovation or a catalyst for economic and social development.

Through the design and deployment of future-proof, full fibre infrastructure, we help bring the benefits of Gigabit speed connectivity to entire communities.

Every Gigabit City provides local business, government, health and education sectors with state-of-the-art digital infrastructure, capable of meeting their data connectivity and communication needs for decades to come. The applications of ultra-fast connectivity are numerous, and will only grow as we continue to embed technology in our day-to-day lives.

South Yorkshire is one of the most recent additions, with Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster becoming Gigabit Cities.

Businesses in Sheffield City Region are now able to exploit the advantages of gigabit speed internet services via the CityFibre network.

This new breed of full-fibre connectivity will improve business productivity and provide a significant competitive advantage.

Connection Vouchers apply to projects of between £1,000 and £5,000 in value. Half of said value can be reclaimed using the Voucher scheme, meaning your investment in technology is achieved at 50% of the cost.

Innovation Vouchers apply to projects of between £5,000 and £24,999 in value. Half of said value can be reclaimed using the Voucher scheme, meaning your investment in technology is achieved at 50% of the cost.
