CityFibre is bringing full fibre broadband to homes and businesses across Dewsbury. As part of their UK wide plan to replace ageing copper cables with fibreoptic, CityFibre is investing £40m in Dewsbury’s digital future.
The project was originally launched in 2019 by Fibre Nation, but CityFibre has since taken over, reinvigorating the plan to bring this state-of-the-art infrastructure to Dewsbury. The gigabit-capable fibre network is expected to provide a platform for “smart city” applications and 5G connectivity in the area.
Councillor Shabir Pandor, Leader of Kirklees Council, has said: “This will provide great opportunities for everyone to be connected to the best broadband speeds for work, leisure and recreation. We will truly be ahead of many other areas. This announcement, together with the ongoing CityFibre investment across Huddersfield, will place Kirklees in a select group of northern towns to benefit from transformative and future-proof digital connectivity."
CityFibre is proud to be partnered with local business, Make Happen Group, to build this network in Dewsbury.
Make Happen Group have been involved in the project since it’s launch under the previous contract in 2019. We are pleased to be working with this capable, community focussed business and providing continuity for this project in Dewsbury. Make Happen Group are a forward-thinking company committed to putting people first. Their values of being “People first”, “On the Ball” and “Never Stand Still” sum up their culture.
Make Happen Group are using modern build techniques to make gigabit connectivity a reality in Dewsbury, and they are now looking for local people to join their team.
