CityFibre Renfrewshire build passes 500km milestone

Tue, 29/11/2022 - 17:06

CityFibre has now laid more than 500km of full fibre beneath the streets of Renfrewshire as part of its £40m plan to future-proof the city’s digital connectivity.  

The work has been completed by CityFibre’s build partner PMK across large sections of Renfrewshire from Barshaw and Ralston in the east to Linwood and Johnstone in the west.

A section of the build which began in Renfrewshire on the south side of the River Clyde now stretches east beyond the Renfrewshire and Glasgow boundary into Cardonald and Mosspark, where it will meet up with the network that has been laid in the south east of the City and is now moving south into East Renfrewshire.

Area Manager David Cannon said: “We have been working in Renfrewshire for more than two years, and the fact that the full fibre infrastructure we have laid could stretch the distance from Renfrewshire to London highlights how much work has been complete."

In Renfrewshire, services are available via Vodafone, BrawBand, Brillband, TalkTalk, Zen and Zybre, with other providers expected to join the network soon.
