CityFibre, the UK’s largest independent full fibre platform, is supporting wholesale partners and their business customers as they return to their offices and/or adopt new hybrid working practices, by making its popular Ethernet Flex solution even more flexible with a new six-month promotion.  

The upcoming return to the office and an increase in the adoption of hybrid working practices has left many businesses uncertain of their immediate bandwidth requirements as they reassess the rapidly evolving needs of their staff and organisation. Whilst that makes this the perfect time to evaluate their current connectivity needs, committing to new long-term connectivity contracts can potentially be daunting due to the current economic climate and ongoing pandemic uncertainty. 

That’s why CityFibre have launched a new six-month promotion, providing even more flexibility across its Ethernet Flex solution.

CityFibre, the UK’s third national digital infrastructure platform, continues to expand the opportunity for channel partners by opening up access to its full fibre Ethernet services for businesses in Derby. 

This is further great news in Derby’s exciting digital revolution. It follows the announcement in June 2020 that CityFibre is investing £45m into its state-of-the-art full fibre network in the city, part of a wider up to £4bn investment to bring full fibre to up to eight million UK homes, largely by 2025. 

According to research from economic consultancy Regeneris, full fibre connectivity will have a major impact in Derby over the next 15 years. Access to full fibre could unlock £39m in business productivity and innovation, while a further £21m in growth could be driven from new business start-ups, with enhanced connectivity making it easier and less expensive to set up base and run efficiently.

CityFibre, the UK’s third digital infrastructure platform, has been awarded the Comms National Award for Best Channel Support Service in recognition of the superior levels of sales and marketing support it provides for wholesale partners. The company was highly commended in the Best Supplier Innovation Award category for its Ethernet Flex product.

Earlier in the year, CityFibre restructured its sales and marketing teams to focus on specific partner verticals. This enabled it to tailor support more effectively, providing specific advice and guidance, co-branded materials, and funded campaign support for wholesale partners delivering full fibre connectivity.

The award also recognised the recent promotions and incentives launched by CityFibre, such as the ‘90 days deferred billing’ and ‘buy now, pay later (or not at all)’ promotions. These were developed in direct response to partner feedback in order to support channel partners through the pandemic.
