CityFibre Announces Abzorb as First Service Provider Partner

Posted 7 years ago

Local telecoms business and member of the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce, Abzorb, has been chosen as the leading partner of the Kirklees CORE, a new GIGABIT speed, PURE-FIBRE network being built in Kirklees. 

The Kirklees CORE network will deliver ultra-fast internet connectivity of up to 1 GIGABIT per second - that’s 100x faster than a standard business leased line connection! The 72km ultra-fast, pure fibre network, constructed by infrastructure provider CityFibre reaches 20% deployment as Kirklees plans to become one of the best digitally connected regions in the UK. 

Abzorb is an authorised supplier of the Government’s Broadband Connection Voucher Scheme and the largest independent internet service provider in Kirklees. The Connection Voucher scheme offers funding of up to £3000 through the Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) programme to cover connection costs. We will be offering businesses gigabit speed services and communication solutions providing real productivity advantages. The business benefits of these speeds are endless and will revolutionise the way you work by allowing you to take advantage of transformational, next generation cloud services.

Faruk Amin, Sales Director, added:

“We’re very excited to be partnering with CityFibre on this fantastic opportunity for Kirklees. Businesses will soon be able to benefit from internet speeds they have only dreamed of.

"Abzorb will be supporting local businesses in the transition from megabit to gigabit speeds with a variety of next generation solutions – everything from VoIP to cloud based applications and remote backups. We will recommend the best data solution for your business. If you’re in business in Kirklees, can you afford to miss out? ”

Jacqui Gedman, Director of Economy, Skills & the Environment at Kirklees Council added:

“This is our opportunity to make Kirklees one of the most digitally advanced places in the world, with connectivity on a par with major international centres. Our ambition for this project is huge and I would encourage local businesses not to miss out on this opportunity to get ahead in today’s digital age.

“We have established and growing technology and media businesses in the region, who obviously rely on fast, reliable connectivity. But it is also vital to the growth of our manufacturing businesses and other sectors as they need the competitive advantage greater speeds and bandwidth can provide.  This is a great opportunity for all businesses to take advantage of this new technology.”

CityFibre’s Regional Development Manager for Kirklees, Jason Petrou-Brown says: 

“We are delighted that construction work has begun, and our carefully planned roll-out will start to bring gigabit connectivity to business from September this year. It’s great to have Abzorb, a Yorkshire based service provider with over 20 years experience serving local and national businesses, on board and offering services today.

“We urge businesses to register their interest on the Kirklees CORE website, to take advantage of this opportunity to increase their productivity and profitability.”
