Superfast Fibre network will make Nottingham one of the best connected cities in the UK
In August 2016 Nottingham City Council signed a 20 year concession agreement with ITS Technology Group, which will see the city’s telecommunications ducting being used to help connect local business to superfast broadband.
100km Open Access Wholesale Fibre Network
Initially the network will use 17km of existing duct infrastructure taking advantage of lower installation costs and avoiding potential disruption to car drivers and pedestrians. Over the concession period ITS will endeavour to extend the reach up to 100kms.
The network will be built with fibre through the core and to premises offering businesses and communities ultrafast broadband services. The network will be operated as an ‘Open Access Network’ and services will be offered through ITS’s established wholesale partner channel.
Supporting a City of the Future
Nottingham is fast becoming a hub of creative activity in sectors such as life sciences, clean tech and digital media. To support this growth a modern cost effective telecommunications infrastructure capable of offering low cost ‘gigabit’ connectivity is seen as an essential key factor.
The focus for this network is to:
- Support the high growth Small to Medium Enterprises (SME) market and especially in the key growth sectors such as life sciences, clean tech and digital media.
- Bring improvement to the city centre which is currently not served by ‘super-fast’ services.
