We are so excited about 2021 in the Evoke offices! With a countrywide, full fibre gigabit broadband network more important than ever to support the UK’s post-Brexit and post-Covid-19 recovery, one of our key network partners, Virtual1 has announced a collaborative partnership with the third largest national digital infrastructure provider, CityFibre. This formidable partnership will enable us to serve our business customers with an increased portfolio of 100Mbps to 1Gbps full fibre Ethernet products in 28 cities, expanding as CityFibre continues its roll out.
The UK’s full fibre rollout and the 2025 PSTN switch off are the driving forces behind the most significant change to business connectivity in a generation where there are strict government targets in place to accelerate the delivery of gigabit capable broadband across the UK by 2025 (no coincidence that this is when the old digital network is due to be turned off!!).
Virtual1 founder and CEO Tom O’Hagan said:
“The partnership combines CityFibre’s growing UK coverage with the flexibility of Virtual1’s Software Defined Network to deliver the best of both worlds.”
Giving impetus to its rollout plans, CityFibre is now embarking on a recruitment plan that will include the identification and training of thousands of unemployed UK residents as well as new job opportunities for qualified and experienced construction and telecoms workers.
At Evoke, we really do see this as an extremely positive partnership and in real terms, this gives us great opportunity to provide our customers with the very best connectivity speeds through a solid and trusted network partner that is giving back to the community. Sustainability and support for local communities and industries closely aligns to our company values and ethos.
Please speak to your Account Manager or a member of the Evoke team to discuss superfast connectivity in more depth or please do request your free of charge audit of your existing services so we can help you identify where efficiencies and improvements can be made.
