Vodafone and CityFibre gigabit speed fibre deal

Anakiya was the lead legal support to CityFibre on its long-term strategic partnership to bring ultrafast Gigabit-capable full fibre broadband to up to five million UK homes and businesses in the UK.

The Vodafone and CityFibre partnership represents one of the most significant developments in UK telecommunications since the launch of ADSL broadband around 17 years ago. The partnership will help to bridge Britain’s fibre gap, bringing world-class Gigabit-capable FTTP connections to households, businesses and public sector sites and also provide the very high-capacity backhaul connections required for 5G mobile services. Under the wholesale arrangements, Vodafone will have a period of exclusive rights to market ultrafast consumer broadband services on the FTTP network to be built, operated and owned by CityFibre.
