We’re delighted to announce the official launch of Faster Brighton; a 37km rich full fibre network which will provide more than 9,000 businesses across Brighton & Hove, Portslade, Southwick, and Shoreham-by-Sea with access to gigabit-capable connectivity and broadband services.

Made possible through an exclusive partnership with full fibre provider ITS Technology Group, the Sussex-based tech team at Focus Group are set to revolutionise digital workplaces across the city through its unique Faster Brighton project. The new network has been designed to meet the demands of today’s modern workplace; providing the connectivity capabilities to take advantage of cloud and next generation technologies, transforming communication, collaboration and productivity.

As Brighton’s legacy copper networks are set to be shut down, businesses need to ensure that their telecoms and broadband services don’t become obsolete. A Faster Brighton connection is fibre from start to finish which is why it is fast, reliable, and futureproof.

Faster Brighton is part of ITS Technology Group’s Faster Britain full fibre rollout, delivering access to its world-class digital infrastructure for businesses in towns and cities across the UK where there is pent up demand for faster, more reliable connectivity services. The UK’s telecommunications infrastructure is undergoing a once in a generation transformation.

Ultimately, Faster Brighton, with unrivalled access to unbeatable broadband speeds of up to 10Gbps, will revolutionise the way businesses work in the region.

Key facts & stats of the network:

  • Business premises with access to Faster Brighton – 9,217
  • Length of the Faster Brighton fibre network - 37Km
  • Environmental measures - the entire network has been built sustainably; reusing existing ducts; avoiding civils digs/roadworks and minimising disruption to local communities during the build process

Rhys Bailey, CRO at Focus Group said:“Faster Brighton is a game-changer for the region's business community; providing teams with the tools they need to succeed in today's digital age. We believe that Faster Brighton will be a catalyst for growth and innovation, enabling businesses to work more efficiently, collaborate more effectively, and ultimately achieve greater success.

Focus Group has a proven track record of delivering the highest level of full fibre business broadband and our collaboration with ITS on the Faster Brighton roll out is expected to ensure local businesses fly well ahead of the competition when it comes to future-ready communications.”
