Firms in the Lynch Wood area of Peterborough have got behind a campaign to get their business park connected to the city’s pure fibre network.
CityFibre, the company behind the Peterborough CORE network, committed to extending the network to Lynch Wood if there was enough interest from firms in the area.
Now it has announced that more than 50 per cent of businesses in Lynch Wood have registered an interest in the Peterborough CORE.
Andy Starnes, city development manager at CityFibre, said: “With first Fengate and now Lynch Wood demanding fibre, it’s clear what the business community wants.
“We’re delighted that Lynch Wood has got behind the Gig Up campaign to get connected.”
Construction is due to begin in the spring. A Gig Up Orton Southgate campaign is due to be launched this Thursday.
