Work to transform Eastbourne into one of the world’s best digitally connected towns, is well underway. CityFibre has invested £26million to build a full fibre network throughout Eastbourne. This work is part of CityFibre’s wider commitment to replace the UK’s dated copper-based networks with gigabit-capable fibre connectivity. The project is expected to deliver millions in economic benefits, bolster productivity & innovation and enable the roll-out of 5G mobile services throughout Eastbourne.
Councillor David Tutt, Leader of Eastbourne Borough Council, has said of the project: “The Covid-19 pandemic has put the importance of a high-speed digital infrastructure in sharp focus. It is integral to the vibrancy and growth of local economies and I welcome the rollout of this technology in the town.”
City Fibre has awarded this contract to local, longstanding build and maintenance business Fibrelay Utilities Ltd. Founded in 2009 by Seamus Hackett, who still owns and operates the business out of East Sussex, Fibrelay’s accomplishments over the last decade have spanned local and international projects. These have included constructing fibre trunk networks across the whole of Great Britain and installing fibre along pan-European routes across France.
