CityFibre Lays Enough Full Fibre to Circle Cheltenham Racecourse 24 Times

Cheltenham’s digital future is taking a leap forward as CityFibre continues to invest in full fibre internet infrastructure, with 115 kilometers already laid as part of a £30 million project. This milestone means there’s now enough full fibre beneath the town’s streets to circle Cheltenham Racecourse’s Gold Cup course an astonishing 24 times.

Neil Madle, CityFibre’s Partnership Manager for Cheltenham, acknowledges the disruption this investment can cause but highlights the long-term benefits, saying, “Residents and businesses in Cheltenham will be able to access the fastest and most reliable connection in the not-so-distant future, as our rollout continues.”

Cheltenham is joining a growing list of UK locations benefiting from CityFibre’s nationwide full fibre rollout, aiming to bring high-quality broadband infrastructure to up to eight million UK homes and businesses.

CityFibre’s local partner for this endeavor, Kier Utilities, has teams currently working in various Cheltenham areas, including The Reddings, Benhall, Kingsditch, Swindon Village, Wymans Brook, St Peter’s, St Paul’s, Pittvile, and Marle Hill. Significant portions of the town, like Alstone, Rowanfield, St Mark’s, Fiddlers Green, Springbank, and Hesters Way, have already been connected, with more areas set to follow soon.

CityFibre’s aim is to offer Cheltenham residents a competitive choice of service providers. Currently, customers can opt for services from UK launch partner, Vodafone, on selected Vodafone Pro Broadband plans, as well as TalkTalk, Giganet, Zen, and IDNet, with more providers anticipated to join the network in the near future.
