Slaughter and May advised Vodafone UK on full fibre broadband deal with CityFibre

Slaughter and May advised Vodafone UK on its expanded deal with CityFibre, which aims to bring full fibre broadband to eight million homes, from Bradford to Portsmouth, by April 2022.  The deal builds on a landmark strategic partnership agreed between Vodafone and CityFibre in November 2017.

As part of the deal, Vodafone is set to become Britain’s largest full fibre broadband provider.  The deal establishes Vodafone as CityFibre’s anchor customer, making long-term, volume commitments across CityFibre’s entire eight million home roll-out. The roll-out will deploy dense full fibre infrastructure in 285 cities, towns and villages across the country by 2025, and support the construction of a new national access network which will make it easier and faster for Vodafone to bring their full fibre services to market.
