CityFibre and wholesale-only network provider Virtual1 have jointly announced a collaborative partnership to serve the UK connectivity channel with full-fibre business services.
Through the partnership, Virtual1 is enabling its partners to access CityFibre’s differentiated business Ethernet infrastructure in its full-fibre towns and cities across the UK from February; while CityFibre leverages Virtual1’s national network to deliver fibre options beyond its own full-fibre footprint to provide ‘off-net’ choice to its partners.
Virtual1 has interconnected with CityFibre to leverage its network and enable 600+ channel partners to serve their business customers with a portfolio of 100Mbps to 1Gbps full-fibre Ethernet products in 28 cities, expanding further as CityFibre continues its UK wide rollout.
Tom Hagan, Founder and CEO of Virtual1 said, “our partnership with CityFibre is compelling news for Virtual1’s partners, combining CityFibre’s rapidly growing UK coverage and highly competitive commercials with the flexibility and empowerment of Virtual1’s Software Defined Network to deliver the best of both worlds. It brings together two of the UK’s most exciting connectivity providers in a way that makes sense for Virtual1, CityFibre, and most importantly the Channel.”
Andy Wilson, CityFibre Head of Wholesale added, “announcing our partnership with Virtual1 is an exciting moment. It marks the expansion of diversified Ethernet product choice for channel partners across the UK and is fantastic news for businesses who are looking eagerly for a compelling and competitively priced full-fibre solution.”
