CityFibre has signed an additional contract with existing partner Onecom, across its existing network assets in Coventry, Leicester and Nottingham.

The five-year agreement, with an initial contract value of £3.2m, commits Onecom to 300 incremental connections across the three footprints, and brings into commercial production the Nottingham and Leicester assets acquired in January 2016.

On 9 September 2016, CityFibre announced a new trading relationship with Onecom as commercial launch partner on its Southend-on-Sea network, which is currently under construction. Today’s announcement adds a further three cities to the Onecom presence on the CityFibre national footprint.

As the largest operator in the Vodafone Partner Programme, Onecom will be leveraging its extensive expertise in the business connectivity market to offer ultra-low-latency gigabit services to business customers in the four CityFibre cities.

Greg Mesch (pictured), Chief Executive of CityFibre, commented, “We’re very pleased with the rapid development of our new relationship with Onecom. In less than a month, Onecom has expanded its presence on the CityFibre footprint to four cities – the fastest multi-city ramp-up of any of our partners to date. In the short time we’ve been working together, Onecom have recognised that our growing network footprint allows them to address their large and diverse national customer base with innovative and differentiated new gigabit fibre connectivity options at highly attractive prices. We look forward to further expansion of the relationship across our entire footprint.”
