7th September 2023: Homes and businesses in Wokingham are now able to future-proof their homes and access faster and more reliable broadband thanks to a new digital network rollout by CityFibre, the UK’s largest independent provider of full fibre infrastructure.

CityFibre started building the £15m network in December 2022, making Wokingham one of a growing number of locations in the UK to benefit from a full fibre upgrade. CityFibre has completed its rollout East of Wokingham Town and North of Crowthorne, with the build now progressing towards the remainder of Crowthorne and Northwest of Wokingham.

The full rollout is expected to reach completion in 2025, giving local homes and businesses the chance to upgrade to full fibre and future-proof their connectivity for decades to come.

Neil Madle, CityFibre’s Partnership Manager for Wokingham, said: “We are not even one year into our build in Wokingham, so it’s extremely rewarding to see so many people benefit from our state-of-the-art full fibre network already.

“We appreciate that digital infrastructure investment of this scale can be disruptive for residents, and would like to thank everyone for their support and patience to date. Once complete, the network will future-proof Wokingham’s digital infrastructure for decades to come – the opportunity when it comes to innovation and growth is enormous.”

Full fibre networks use 100% fibre optics to carry data at light speed all the way from the home to the point of connection. This gives users speeds of up to 1,000 Mbps for upload and download, near limitless bandwidth and reliable connectivity.

Locally, the rollout is being completed by CityFibre’s build partner, OCU Services Limited. The team is working closely with Wokingham Borough Council to ensure any disruption is managed safely and efficiently.

CityFibre’s goal is to provide residents with a competitive choice of providers. In Wokingham, customers can sign up to UK launch partner, Vodafone, on selected Vodafone Pro Broadband plans, as well as TalkTalk, Giganet and Zen, and other providers.

People interested in upgrading their home’s digital connection to full fibre can find out more about the build, pre-register their interest and ensure they are updated on service availability at
