CityFibre has been awarded a contract to provide the City of Stirling with a Public Services Network, making it CityFibre’s fourth Gigabit City in Scotland, and CityFibre’s 41st nationally.
The seven-year contract with Buckinghamshire-based managed service provider MLL Telecom, carries an initial contract value (ICV) of £1.7m, and will require the initial construction of 20 kilometres of new network connecting 33 sites across the council’s estate.
It will also provide future-proof foundations for further digital developments, for example, connecting mobile masts, delivering safer city infrastructure such as smart CCTV and street-lighting. As with all CityFibre’s Gigabit City projects, the new network will be extended over time to offer the majority of Stirling’s 3,000 businesses affordable access to gigabit speed services.
Greg Mesch, Chief Executive of CityFibre, commented: “We’re thrilled to add Stirling as our fourth Gigabit City in Scotland, bringing the numerous benefits of pure fibre connectivity to the public sector and business community in the city. We’re also very pleased to add MLL Telecom to our growing universe of service provider partners and look forward to working together to transform public services and business connectivity in Stirling, our 41st Gigabit City.”
