  • Yayzi has been soft launching multigig services since last December, which are now live across CityFibre’s network as of January 2024.
  • Yayzi’s service is underpinned by CityFibre’s XGS-PON rollout, network technology that’s capable of supporting symmetrical speeds up to 10Gbps.
  • Yayzi first joined the CityFibre network in 2021 and now offers services nationwide across the footprint.

18th January 2024, London: Yayzi, the Blackpool-based consumer internet service provider (ISP), has become the first ISP on CityFibre’s network to offer a 2.5Gbps symmetrical service to consumers across the country. CityFibre, the UK’s largest independent full fibre platform, made its 2.5Gbps wholesale product available to ISP customers last summer.

Yayzi’s highly affordable 2.5Gbps symmetrical service offers download speeds 2.5 times faster than BT Openreach’s 1Gbps product and 20 times the upload speeds of BT Openreach’s piloted 1.8Gbps GPON services.

Yayzi has a range of affordable products at the same cost or less compared to leading providers 900 products, to cover XGS-PON and G-PON areas while CityFibre upgrades take place. XGS-PON 2.3Gb Pro+ and 1.2Gb Pro (True 1Gb) symmetrical products and G-PON 2Gb Pro+ and 1.2Gb Pro asymmetrical products with 1Gb uploads. All Pro products come with TP-LINK 2.5Gb capable router with 2.5Gb WAN and 2.5Gb LAN ports, with additional 3x1Gb ports, VOIP options and 4/5G options, creating total flexibility for the consumer.

As part of the multigig rollout Yayzi 900 Plus products will now be based on a 1.2Gb line profile as standard, as a major upgrade to its services. This allows true 1Gb speeds on compatible routers and the ability to take advantage of Yayzi DUO service, allowing upgrade or downgrade seamlessly between Pro packages.

The 2.5Gbps symmetrical service is powered by CityFibre’s rapidly expanding XGS-PON platform – a gold-standard network technology ultimately capable of supporting symmetrical speed services up to 10Gbps. CityFibre has already deployed the XGS-PON equipment into over 90% of its fibre exchanges, with coverage growing across its ‘ready for service’ footprint, currently standing at over 3m homes.

Multi-gigabit symmetrical broadband services will be needed to support consumers’ growing demands to broadcast and share more rich media with each other than ever before. Such speeds will also enable future in-home innovation, bringing new ways to learn, interact and enrich lives.

Martin Gardner, Chief Executive Officer at Yayzi commented: This has been a team effort for all key parties involved right down to the engineers on site, to make multigig a reality and choice for consumers, as the UK full fibre market evolves once again. We are very excited about this innovative move and seeing very high uptake of pre orders and interest for these products. The team at Yayzi have now set the standard in the UK ISP market with our partners at CityFibre and made stupidly fast broadband affordable for the consumer.

Dan Ramsay, Chief Marketing Officer at CityFibre said: “We’re delighted Yayzi is set to bring their 2.5Gbps product to market over the CityFibre network. While many still believe that these speeds are too fast for consumers, data from around the world is shows that multi-gig services are gaining traction fast. Three million UK homes will now have access to multi-gig speeds from CityFibre and we’re confident that we’ll see interest and take-up grow rapidly in the years to come.”

Kalam Meah, ISP Director, TP-Link UK commented: “We are delighted to be working with Yayzi and City Fibre as we enter into this exciting next stage of broadband in the UK. As we now progress beyond the Gigabit, our partnership with Yayzi and CityFibre is enabling the Multi-gig environment – we have moved from the foothills and we are now on the first ascent!

Leveraging our Aginet EX820v with its 2.5Gb WAN & 2.5Gb LAN, 4×4 MU-MIMO and superfast Wi-Fi 6 speed, we will deliver an enhanced lag free user experience for gaming, streaming and virtual working, improving overall productivity for customers. This marks a significant achievement in bringing the benefits of the Multi-gig environment to a wider range of customers.”
