How we’ve added 7,000 more on-net sites across the UK with CityFibre

We’re continuing to expand our network reach, adding capability where customers need it most to deliver agile, on-demand digital infrastructure. Our partnership in the UK with CityFibre means that Colt customers now have access to more than 7,000 virtual on-net buildings across seven new cities.

Both Colt and CityFibre are continuing to invest in our networks and expand our reach, with the ever-expanding footprint meaning that businesses in Bracknell, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Maidenhead, Milton Keynes, Leeds and Slough can now benefit from Colt’s agile, reliable and secure global connectivity. For existing Colt customers, this makes it quicker and easier to add new locations in these cities.

Our close partnership means we can offer these sites as ‘virtual on-net’ locations, so customers can provision services through the Colt On Demand portal and quickly see availability.

We’ve been working together with CityFibre since 2016 and their network and values are a great match for ours. Their 10Gbps XGS-PON platform technology upgrade means that, since 2023, we’ve been enabling the future delivery of multi-gig services to businesses, alongside innovations such as zero-touch service upgrades and proactive in-life maintenance and repairs to continually deliver best-in-class service.
