CityFibre calls for judicial review of UK advertising watchdog ‘fibre’ ruling

CityFibre has filed for a judicial review of the UK’s advertising watchdog, the Advertising Standards Authority’s (ASA), 2017 ruling, which approved the continued use of the term ‘fibre’ to describe services delivered over copper-based networks.

The builder, owner, and operator of fibre-optic infrastructure argues that the research and logic that led to the ASA’s decision was fundamentally flawed and that the watchdog has not only permitted, but also encouraged internet service providers to continue to mislead consumers.

Infrastructure investors pour money into British broadband

Britain has a reputation as a backwater when it comes to fibre-optic broadband connections that reach directly into consumer’s homes. Currently, only two per cent of households in the country have access to full fibre connections. But that looks set to change. This summer, some £500 million of equity and new debt have been invested in alternative network providers in the UK.
