The initial collaboration between the companies was announced in 2020 with Zen committing to launching services across four locations, which has since expanded to 31
The agreement enables Zen to use CityFibres’s complete rollout deploying Full Fibre infrastructure in 285 locations across the country by 2025 as part of a £4bn investment programme.
Zen’s symmetrical broadband packages will be amongst the fastest available to any UK home by providing customers with download and upload speeds of up to 900 Mbps.
In the next few weeks, Zen will launch in new cities with services expected to be available to all homes across the CityFibre footprint by late 2022.
Zen chief executive office Paul Stobart said: “We’re seeing great consumer demand and interest in our early cities and are excited to ensure more homes can access an award-winning full fibre service at what is a pivotal time for connectivity in the home.
By 2030 everyone will have made the switch and we are excited about the role Zen plays as an ultrafast pioneer to be a key enabler of early adoption.”
CityFibre chief executive officer Greg Mesch added: “We are determined to build the UK’s finest Full Fibre network, a rock-solid platform for our customers, with better products at the right economics.
“In doing so, we’re playing our part in helping to provide the UK with the critical digital infrastructure and competitive dynamic needed to drive improved services and prices for consumers across the country.”
