CityFibre speeds up Adur and Worthing’s digital transformation

The District of Adur and Borough of Worthing are celebrating a major milestone in their digital transformation with work now well underway to build a full fibre network to reach almost every home and business in the area.
CityFibre is investing at least £25m in Adur and Worthing to deliver this transformational project, as part of its nationwide plan to replace the country’s ageing copper-based networks with gigabit-capable full fibre connectivity.
Full fibre is currently available to less than 11 per cent of premises across the UK. It is revered as the best in connectivity for its speed, near unlimited bandwidth and reliability. By using fibre optic cables for every stage of the connection from the customer’s home or business to the internet, users will be offered a significantly superior and more reliable broadband service, capable of Gigabit speeds (1,000 Mbps).
The network is not yet live, but once activated, services will be available from an increasing range of broadband providers. Across the UK CityFibre is already working with launch partner Vodafone to deliver next generation broadband services, and TalkTalk is expected to join the network soon.
Local contractor CCN is delivering the construction programme on CityFibre’s behalf and work is already in progress.
The company is using modern build techniques to deploy the network quickly, while working closely with local communities to manage disruption and ensure a fast, successful roll-out. Residents are being kept informed by door-to-door teams and mailings ahead of works in their streets.
Adrian Smith, CityFibre’s City Manager for the district, said: “The district is one step closer to becoming a Gigabit destination with work now underway to install state-of-the-art digital infrastructure across the area. We look forward to residents benefiting from full fibre, meaning they’ll not only be able to access all the latest entertainment and services at Gigafast speed and smart home technology, they will also have the freedom to work from home with ease.
“As Adur and Worthing continue on their path to explore new economic opportunities, having access to transformative full fibre connectivity will help drive innovation and productivity, ultimately giving businesses the platform they need to flourish.”
Worthing Borough Council’s, Executive Member for Digital & Environmental Services, Cllr Edward Crouch said: “We welcome this investment by CityFibre into Worthing to deliver a modern, fit-for-purpose digital infrastructure that will futureproof residents and businesses. CityFibre’s full fibre network will be vital in ensuring Worthing has a resilient and dynamic economy for years to come.”
Adur District Council's Executive Member for Resources, Cllr Angus Dunn, said, “I welcome this announcement. Businesses and residents in Adur District will have access to Gigafast transformative full fibre connectivity which will be a real game-changer.”
If residents are interested in full fibre broadband, they can pre-register interest with CityFibre and will receive information when services are available.
