As one of 42 Gigabit Cities across the UK, Portsmouth will have the world-class pure fibre digital infrastructure that cities need to meet demand for greater internet speeds.
More than 70km of cables have been laid across the city to bring ultrafast internet speed. M12 Solutions and Vostron will sell the ultrafast internet packages, aiming to drive down the cost for SMEs.
The government has shown its support for the scheme by offering grants of up to £2,500 to help businesses get set up. Find out more about the scheme.
CityFibre, the UK's largest provider of full fibre infrastructure had made a multi-million-pound investment into Portsmouth to make it a Gigabit City.
