TalkTalk is behind York’s Ultra Fibre Optic, a city-wide full fibre network delivering speeds of more than 900Mb to the premise.
York is TalkTalk’s first Ultra Fibre Optic city and was the first UK city with an engineering project of this kind. By 2020 the network will have passed 55,000 homes and businesses. It will place York as one of the top digital infrastructure cities in the UK and globally, helping to create new jobs and attract investment
Compared to 80% in the rest of Europe, only 7% of homes and businesses in the UK can connect to a full fibre network. Fibre Nation is on a mission across the UK to connect 3 million homes and businesses, so you can enjoy the same broadband speeds as our gigabit-city, York, home to the fastest broadband speeds in the country.
Fibre Nation and York’s Ultra Fibre Optic are behind the UK’s first Gigabit City in York where by 2020, 55,000 homes and businesses will be able to connect to our full fibre network. This is the biggest fibre infrastructure currently available in the UK – and our network has made York the fastest in the country. Harrogate, Knaresborough and Ripon will see over 40,000 homes and businesses be rolled out over the next few years.
