CityFibre services mark Gimme Fibre Day

CityFibre, the owner and operator of the UK’s largest fibre-to-the-home network in Bournemouth, is launching what it describes as 'unprecedented and affordable' business broadband products through its internet service provider Gigler. The company is launching the service to mark Gimme FIbre Day, launched this year for the first time by the FTTH Councils' Global Alliance.
 
The company says that, responding to a high level of interest from local business owners, Gigler Business is aimed at small to medium businesses frustrated by the shortcomings of so called ‘fibre’ business broadband services available from incumbent providers. Gigler’s new packages will make the transformational effects of gigabit connectivity a reality for companies with increasing reliance on bandwidth. With up to 1000Mbps download and 500Mbps upload speeds as standard, transferring large files will become much faster and using cloud services more practical, increasing employee efficiency, productivity and improving communications with suppliers and customers.
 
CityFibre says it has trialled Gigler Business with a number of Bournemouth businesses, and that all have experienced transformational efficiencies in their day-to-day operations. Introducing Gigler’s new business packages, Greg Mesch, chief executive officer, said: 'We have managed to bring a new generation of business broadband to life. From an easily affordable £50 a month, companies can plug in to speeds and a quality of internet experience that will be the envy of every business in the county making do with uninspiring, inferior connectivity.

'These new services complete the range for businesses of all sizes in Bournemouth; complementing the enterprise-grade Internet leased line and dark fibre services we currently offer. This is another important demonstration of CityFibre’s vision - pure fibre infrastructure delivering real benefits to all aspects of a community.'
