Aberdeen to become Scotland's first gigabit-speed fibre broadband city

CityFibre to invest at least £40 million in full fibre infrastructure for the Granite City in partnership with Vodafone

Aberdeen is set to become a forerunner for digital transformation in Scotland with the announcement of a new Gigabit-capable full fibre broadband network under the Vodafone and CityFibre Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) programme.

The Vodafone and CityFibre partnership will mean that Aberdeen becomes Scotland's first city in which nearly every home and business will have access to gigabit-speed broadband. It will also help the Scottish Government achieve their 'Reaching 100%' ambition of making Scotland one of the best connected places in Europe, unlocking its full potential in a digital world. CityFibre will invest at least £40 million of private funds in the city-wide roll-out.

Fibre optic cables are used for every stage of the connection, from the customer's home or business to the Internet. This means Vodafone will be able to provide customers with ultrafast and reliable broadband services capable of Gigabit speeds (1,000 Mbps). With no copper wire to slow the network down, the ultrafast connection will transform users' online experience. At present, just three per cent of UK premises have access to these superior standard connections.

Aberdeen is the second UK location to be announced as part of a strategic partnership between Vodafone and CityFibre, unveiled in November last year. The partnership focuses on extending CityFibre's existing FTTP infrastructure to approximately 12 cities and reaching one million homes across the UK by 2021.

CityFibre will start construction of the new FTTP network in Aberdeen in July this year. It will use modern build techniques to deploy the network quickly, while minimising disruption. Once completed, nearly every business and home in Aberdeen will have FTTP access.

Aberdeen was chosen as the first FTTP city in Scotland because of the city's emergent tech sector, the council's forward-looking commitment to 'smart city' initiatives, and the strength of its support for the project. Customers in Aberdeen will be able to pre-register for the Vodafone full fibre service from today at www.vodafone.co.uk/broadband/ultrafast, with the first live services expected by early 2019.
