Triangle Networks, one of Bristol’s leading Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and launch partner on CityFibre’s Bristol: Gigabit City project, has today launched a portfolio of new, ultra-fast services targeted at Bristol’s business community.

Running over CityFibre’s pure fibre, gigabit speed network, the services bring some of the fastest speeds in Europe within reach of the entire business community.

CityFibre will transform Bristol into a Gigabit City, extending the reach and availability of its state-of-the-art, 82km pure fibre network to serve the largest possible number of Bristol businesses. To do this, businesses are encouraged to register their interest, with no obligation, on the project website as part of the ‘Gig Up Bristol’ campaign www.cityfibre.com/Bristol. Registrations will enable CityFibre to map areas of demand and prioritise roll-out, ensuring the network is within reach of the maximum number of businesses.

Greg Mesch CEO at CityFibre said: “It’s great to see how fast this project has become a reality. We are now at the point of launching services to the market that will change the way that Bristol does business. Pure fibre infrastructure is raising the bar and resetting expectations everywhere we look and here is yet another example; ultra-fast speeds, affordable and within reach of almost every business. Exciting times are ahead.”

Paul Anslow, MD at Triangle Networks, said: “Thousands of Bristol businesses have never had access to ultra-fast internet speeds because of the huge costs associated with traditional networks. From today – they do. The services we have launched today over CityFibre’s pure fibre network have the capability to revolutionise a business’ digital experience and transform the way they operate. With affordable access to speeds light-years ahead of your current services, now is the time to register your interest and reach out to one of our partners. Gig Up Bristol!”

Triangle and CityFibre will launch the services at an event held at the Engine Shed, home of ‘Bristol is Open’ and attended by business leaders, council representatives and key figures from Bristol’s tech community. Offerings include entry-level symmetrical 500Mbps broadband services as well as a full 1000Mbps ‘Gigabit’ symmetrical service. Ofcom’s Connected Nations report identified that 46% of SMEs were forced to endure speeds of up to 10Mbps, making Triangle’s new products 50x and 100x faster respectively.
