JMW advises CityFibre as latest stage of the Gigabit City Investment Programme accelerates
The Real Estate team at Manchester-based law firm, JMW Solicitors, is advising CityFibre as the latest leg of its up to £4bn Gigabit City Investment Programme ramps up.
CityFibre, the UK’s largest independent full fibre platform, is on course to reach 30% of the country by 2025, covering 285 locations across the UK.
JMW is advising on the acquisition of fibre exchange and data centre sites in key locations as CityFibre’s network expansion progresses, along with planning and construction advice and support with wider occupational requirements. The law firm has worked with the business since 2013.
CityFibre recently announced its full list of 285 locations, and has already passed one million homes.
Paul Burton, Partner at JMW Solicitors, said: “Our Real Estate team benefits from a huge amount of knowledge both in the delivery of infrastructure and telecoms, so we are well placed to support CityFibre as it completes what is the biggest investment in digital infrastructure for a generation.
“It’s a hugely significant project and we look forward to working with the CityFibre team to continue the acquisition of key sites and enable the rollout to progress apace.”
