MLL Telecom teams up with CityFibre to bring FibreConnect gigabit boost to Sterling

MLL Telecom has partnered with CityFibre to offer businesses in Stirling a gigabit boost, providing next-generation internet services over a new, purpose built full fibre network.

The new commercial sector offering from MLL Telecom – FibreConnect – is being rolled out to give local businesses the chance to benefit from dedicated full fibre broadband capable of gigabit speeds. CityFibre, has already installed 24km of network, which connects most of Stirling city’s public sector estate including schools, libraries and community venues.

Stirling was also amongst some of the first cities to benefit from a full fibre to the premises roll-out as part of CityFibre’s partnership with Vodafone, extending the existing network to bring it within reach of practically every home and business in the city (see Vodafone-CityFibre deal could shake up British broadband).

Jeremy Wastie, head of new business, public sector at MLL Telecom commented: ‘We are excited to be a driving force in aiding the city’s entrepreneurial business growth. Our ultrafast FibreConnect services will give local businesses the much-needed connectivity speeds to boost productivity and create new jobs that will ultimately benefit the entire community.’

James McClafferty, head of regional development at CityFibre, described full fibre as ‘the gold standard in digital connectivity’ and a ‘must have’ foundation for growth and development in the digital age; whilst Gordon Bell, chief executive at local business support organisation, STEP said: ‘Businesses in Stirling have been crying out for greater digital infrastructure that can support their ambitious growth plans for some time. It’s very exciting to hear that “Gigabit City” status will put Stirling ahead of the game in the UK for connectivity, allowing these businesses to not only grow but to take their business to the next level.’
