Edinburgh CORE

Edinburgh is set to join the gigabit revolution due to Strategic Partnership between Commsworld and CityFibre.

Businesses across Edinburgh are being given the opportunity to shape the route of a new 150km, ultra-fast, Pure Fibre network which is transforming the Scottish capital into a Gigabit City.  With the build progressing well and with over 200 sites now live and enjoying gigabit speeds on the state-of-the-art network infrastructure.

The city-wide, pure-fibre network will dramatically accelerate Edinburgh’s digital capabilities, bringing it in line with other major global hubs such as Stockholm, Seoul and Kansas City. It will support tens of thousands of businesses that operate in the city and provide multi-gigabit speeds up to 100 times faster than the UK’s average. This ultra modern Network infrastructure will also future-proof the city’s digital requirements as the thirst for greater bandwidth grow.

Unique Benefits of Pure Fibre

There are substantial technical, commercial and development benefits associated with a new transformational pure fibre in the infrastructure in the city including:

  • Multi-gigabit grade connectivity
  • Virtually limitless capacity
  • Incredibly low latency
  • Every fibre route will have enough capacity to enable growth way beyond the initial requirements
  • Affordable, faster and better service compared with traditional telecoms operators
  • Becoming a fibre rich city providing Gigabit speeds to public sector, business and residents can increase a city’s annual GDP by over 1%, equating to hundreds of new jobs for the city economy

When and where

With construction due to be finished by the end of September a significant proportion of the network is up and running which already has many public sector sites and businesses live such as the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, Queens Hall, The Law Society and the Festival Theatre.

The Edinburgh CORE will improve the digital capabilities in Schools, offices, Community Centres and for businesses across the City.
