Digital infrastructure is key to opening access and opportunity by building a smarter, more connected, more equitable, and sustainable world.
CityFibre is working to unlock the digital potential of communities across the U.K. by building a full fibre network that supports quicker and more reliable broadband connections. By the end of 2025, Bechtel will have helped CityFibre achieve its goal to reach one-third of the U.K. market.
In addition to its own £4 billion roll out programme—which will cover 285 cities, towns and villages, reaching 8 million homes, 800,000 businesses, 250,000 small-cell access points, and 400,00 public sector buildings such as schools and hospitals—CityFibre is also supporting in the U.K. government’s Build Digital U.K. (BDUK) Agency’s “Project Gigabit,” which is a £5 billion investment programme that seeks to deliver lightning-fast, reliable broadband to homes and business in rural areas across the U.K. This will allow CityFibre to extend its network to rural areas around the 285 cities in its own programme and support the U.K. government’s agenda to level up communities across the U.K.
