Vodafone Ultrafast/Gigafast (Cityfibre 1Gb rollout)


[link to this post]
 
Seems they were telling the world it would be H12018... which is now upon us. Has there been any rumours or news of an actual launch date. Here in Aberdeen they have finished laying fibre in the 1st phase (big chunk of the city basically, 100km of network in Dec 2017) a good while ago, same in my home city Edinburgh...

My contract for FTTC is up in a few weeks..

If using financial talk, H1 2018 can be April to October

Suspect you might see some local marketing first ahead of the big 'press' launch e.g. leaflets through letter box to get a few early signups and give the installers a ramp up before the big demand of a big launch.

If you are talking financial then it would not refer as dates because the H refers to the word "Hypothesis"

In the case of H1 2018 it just means sometime in 2018

There is another guy waiting on this too.

The last time I checked through all the CityFibre information I read they were aiming to offer it by mid-2018.

I've not heard any update since. I guess you'll have to keep your eyes peeled about it and let us know.

It will be interesting to hear of the install process and performance.

In a strange coincidence just after this post I received an email just thanking me for showing interest. So they must realise people like me have twigged it should be time now! If and then it happens, i'll document the install process.

In reference to :
