Vodafone connects up first Gigafast 1,000Mb fibre customer in Milton Keynes
Vodafone has confirmed that it has successfully connected its new 1,000Mb service to one family home in Milton Keynes, where the telecoms giant is rolling out its service to 50 test premises.
Once the test proves successful the Vodafone Gigabit broadband will be rolled out across available parts of the city. Other cities will follow suit such as Aberdeen, Coventry, Edinburgh, Huddersfield, Peterborough and Stirling.
Nick Jeffery, Vodafone UK Chief Executive, said: “Full fibre is vital to our digital economy and to the UK’s future as a digital leader, yet just 3% of UK premises currently have access to it. That’s why we are offering Vodafone Gigafast Broadband and making it available on a mass scale, reaching a million UK homes by 2021.”
