Vodafone and CityFibre digging for gigabit broadband in Aberdeen

Vodafone has named Aberdeen as the next place where it’ll be installing gigabit broadband. Work with infrastructure provider and network partner CityFibre will begin on the project this July and the first customers are expected to be able to order Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) services by early 2019. Building on CityFibre’s existing fibre optic infrastructure, which has been in place since 2015, Vodafone will be able to pass a currently unnamed number of homes and businesses across the city with ‘minimal disruption’ promised.

Once finished, customers will be able to experience download and upload speeds of 1Gbps (1,000Mbps), significantly faster than the speeds currently offered by BT and Virgin Media’s G.fast[1] and HFC-based services[2]. CityFibre chief executive Greg Mesch said: “Our commitment to Aberdeen is further evidence of the action CityFibre is taking to deliver Britain’s full fibre future. Our existing network in Aberdeen provides us with an eighteen-month head-start on a full fibre roll-out to nearly every home and business in the city.

“With similar FTTP backbone networks already built in over 40 UK towns and cities, our contribution to national full fibre coverage is well underway. We are getting on with the job of building Gigabit Britain – at full speed.” Vodafone and CityFibre named Milton Keynes as the first place where it would begin work on rolling out new FTTP connections[3].

While BT is planning on passing 3 million homes with FTTP by 2020[4], Vodafone, using CityFibre’s existing networks, plans to pass 5 million by 2025, but in the shorter term, the companies expect to have passed one million homes across the UK with gigabit fibre broadband by 2021. Vodafone UK’s chief executive Nick Jeffery said: “Our Gigabit broadband services, delivered over CityFibre’s new full fibre networks, will help Aberdeen build on its credentials in innovation and as one of the best places to start a business. It will also transform consumers’ daily lives through superior Internet access.”

While CityFibre has a presence in over 40 UK towns and cities, the partnership with Vodafone will see homes and businesses in at least 10 more locations earmarked for new FTTP connections.

Sky and BT secure Premier League rights for 2019-22 seasons

Sky Sports and BT Sport have shelled out GBP4.464m between them for broadcast rights to the next three seasons of Premier League games. As in previous seasons, Sky has secured the lion’s share of the games[1], spending GBP1.193 per season for rights to 128 games per season including all of the first picks, 32 Saturday 17:30 games, 8 Saturday 19:45 games and a total of 64 Sunday games plus 24 games on Monday or Friday evenings. Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports said: “Sky Sports customers will continue to enjoy unrivalled Premier League coverage through to 2022 with 128 live matches a season from next year – more than ever before – including the key head to heads in the best slots and, of course, analysis from the biggest names in football.

“This comes on the back of recent renewals for EFL, ECB and exclusivity for F1, all of which will be available to our customers until 2024.” Read next: How much is Sky Sports and how to get it: Best prices and deals compared[2] So far BT has secured just 32 games, spending with one package, all of them 12:30 Saturday kick-offs with a maximum of six matches per club.

But as BT’s CEO of consumer brands Marc Allera pointed on Twitter, there are still two Packages, totalling 40 games to bid for. The results of the final phase of the auction won’t be revealed until two weeks from now, meaning there’s still time for BT Sport to up its game.

Best deals and prices compared[3] In a statement, Allera, added: “The Premier League is undoubtedly the most competitive and exciting domestic league in the world, so we’re delighted that our customers will be able to continue enjoying Saturday games on BT Sport. “The Premier League is a big part of our live sport line-up, which includes the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, the Emirates FA Cup, MotoGP, boxing, Aviva Premiership rugby and European Rugby Champions Cup.”

For many fans, the news will be sweetened by the deal struck by Sky and BT last December, which will, from next year, see Sky customers able to directly add BT Sport channels to their subscription and BT TV customers able to access Sky Sports streams through their set-top boxes via the Now TV app. Currently, Sky has the broadcast rights to 126 games per season while BT has 32. At the last Premier League rights auction, Sky and BT spent a total of GBP5.14 billion between them.
