Neos Networks’ continuing partnership with CityFibre provides the cities with business-grade Ethernet connectivity, including in often overlooked regions of the UK.
A further nine UK cities are set to benefit from connectivity provider Neos Networks’ continuing partnership with CityFibre.
The partnership provides business-grade Ethernet connectivity on the CityFibre network, ensuring its customers have greater options and flexibility when selecting last-mile providers.
Cambridge, Cheltenham, Coventry, Derby, Gloucester, Huddersfield, Peterborough, Southend and Swindon are able to quote and order via Neos Networks price comparison tool LiveQuote, which compares connectivity services across the UK on a range of capacities from 10Mbps all the way up to 10Gbps.
The LiveQuote portal provides Neos Networks’ customers better transparency when selecting a last-mile service provider as well as clear visibility of third-party availability for local access points. As of today, two of the nine cities – Cambridge and Swindon – are available to start quoting, with the additional seven cities due for completion within the next month.
By onboarding the additional nine CityFibre cities, Neos Networks can continue its work in supporting businesses across the nation to access highly reliable connectivity services to support their digital agendas.
“With business connectivity needs increasing, offering a new network alternative for multi-location businesses can help them on the path to recovery”
Both enterprises and wholesalers across the UK will gain more choice and visibility for reliable, high-capacity and secure connectivity solutions. The continued expansion ensures Neos Networks offers a number of interconnects and wider access to its network for customers in often overlooked regions of the UK.
“Neos Networks and CityFibre have both invested substantially in UK fibre networks over the last 10 years, challenging the status quo and developing a strong proposition in the market,” said Sarah Mills, managing director for wholesale and smart infrastructure, Neos Networks.
She added: “This development of our partnership means we can now offer businesses enhanced, self-serve, last-mile capability in more locations than ever before. With business connectivity needs increasing, offering a new network alternative for multi-location businesses can help them on the path to recovery.”
In addition to the CityFibre agreement, Neos Networks said it is on course to deliver its target of more than doubling the number of exchanges on its own network, up to 550 exchanges by the end of 2021. Many of these exchanges will provide 100Gbps high-capacity options and 10Gbps Ethernet connectivity as standard.
The enhancement of its network footprint will also result in an additional 10,000km of fibre network for the company.
“As a renowned disrupter in the market, establishing partnerships such as these helps us to offer our customers the best network experience possible,” said Andrew Wilson, head of wholesale at CityFibre. “This relationship is a perfect fit due to our companies’ like-minded approach to tackling UK connectivity challenges and the vision towards improving the digital future of Britain.”
