Full-fibre network nearing launch in York
Network operator TalkTalk is preparing for the launch of a new full-fibre optic broadband network in the city of York, with the aim of having the project up and running by the end of the year.

The new fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) network will allow for transfer rates of up to 1 Gbps for customers and aims to offer services for up to 1,200 homes and businesses once complete.

"Early indications of build costs are proving to be in line with our target of under £500 per home passed," the company stated. "Based on our experience to date, we remain confident about the potential to roll out FTTP in scale."

Indeed, this initial project in York is seen as a litmus test for the delivery of new nationwide FTTP networks, with TalkTalk believing this could be a possibility in the years ahead.

The opportunity and ability to deliver ultrafast networks connecting millions of homes is something the network provider is now examining.
