180 Oxford public service sites connected

02 July 2024

Utilising its high-capacity fibre network and solutions, and aggregating local fibre networks from Openreach, Virgin Media Business and Gigaclear, Neos Networks has now provided full fibre connectivity to 180 out of 193 public buildings contracted for Oxfordshire County Council under the GigaHubs project.

The initial project, delivered by the end of 2023, saw 175 GP practices, schools, libraries and community centres connected to full fibre. However once deployed, Neos was engaged to extend connectivity to a further 18 rural sites in the county that were previously only connected via copper-based services. The fibre networks are now enabling faster provisioning of public services at a fraction of the cost due to Neos’ network rationalisation of services and ability to access an extremely competitive supply chain.
