GreenCity Solutions to invest £1.5M in Peterborough network

LONDON & PETERBOROUGH – GreenCity Solutions, Peterborough’s leading unified communications provider, has this month completed an agreement which will see the company invest over £1.5 million into Peterborough to help hundreds more local businesses connect to the Gigabit CityFibre network. This investment will ultimately support the ongoing expansion of the network, reinforcing its position as one of the best digitally connected cities in the UK.

Constructed by CityFibre two years ago, the now 120km pure fibre network has grown rapidly and connects hundreds of businesses and public sector sites throughout the city. GreenCity Solutions have been providing next-generation internet services over the network since the project’s inception and this new phase of activity will help even more businesses to benefit from market-leading digital connectivity.

Rob Baldacci, Owner of GreenCity Solutions said “Since the launch of CityFibre’s network in Peterborough, we have connected more than 200 businesses, enabling them to communicate faster with their customers, improve productivity and reduce costs. The Gigabit City project has been the catalyst for local businesses to expand, take on new team members and be more positive about their growth targets.

“Using CityFibre’s ultra-fast network puts us in the enviable position of being able to deliver all business communications needs over infrastructure that offers ultra-low latency, gigabit speeds and true reliability. GreenCity Solutions are proud to be making this investment into Peterborough and its business community.

“This investment provides us with the opportunity to open CityFibre’s infrastructure up to more local resellers giving them an alternative to leased lines and FTTC, we are delighted to be in a position now to engage with other IT and Telecoms resellers to help them position this new product in their armory.”
