CityFibre has kicked off work to transform Stirling's connected future with the roll out of a next-generation full fibre broadband network.
Almost every home and business across Stirling City will be able to access the ultrafast connectivity which is being delivered via a £10m private investment from CityFibre as part of its strategic partnership with Vodafone.
Stirling is among the first locations in the UK to benefit from the digital transformation, along with Scottish cities Aberdeen and Edinburgh.
The first homes and businesses will see their full fibre services ‘go live’ in spring next year with construction work expected to continue throughout next year and into 2020.
PMK Civil Engineering is delivering the construction programme on CityFibre’s behalf.
Elaine Doherty, CityFibre’s City Development Manager for Stirling, said: “For people across Stirling, their digital future is just around the corner. With work now underway we are only a few months from the first homes being able to access full fibre and that is something to be celebrated.
“The investment also comes at a critical time for Stirling’s forward-thinking business community. Full fibre enables Stirling to be more innovative and productive, ultimately giving businesses the platform they need to realise their growth ambitions. And it won’t just improve business at home – it will also help businesses take their products or services to an international audience.”
