LIVERPOOL, UK -- Fibrecity Holdings, an i3 Group company, has today announced the next Fibrecity networks that it intends to build, which will result in more than one million homes and businesses being connected to its fibre optic network over the next four years – delivering standard speeds of 100Mbps and boosts of up to 1Gbps through the largest fibre to the home initiative in the UK.

Fibrecity networks are planned for Derby, Halton, Nottingham, Plymouth and York, with a target to commence build within the next twelve months. Further cities under consideration for Fibrecity networks include Belfast, Aberdeen, Ipswich and Bristol. Fibrecity Holdings and Birmingham City Council are also in initial discussions for the construction of Fibrecity Birmingham.

These cities are in addition to the Fibrecity networks already underway in Bournemouth and Dundee which have proven the consumer demand for superfast access as more than 35,000 homes have already signed up to be connected in Bournemouth alone.

The i3 Group has also turned the service provider market on its head by introducing the Fibrecity gateway, an open access platform that connects service providers to customers. Opencity Media, an i3 Group company, has developed the Fibrecity gateway to serve as a virtual market place that offers consumer choice by allowing multiple service providers to offer and deliver services over a single Fibrecity network connection.
