LCR Connect – part of the Faster Britain network, will help make the Liverpool City Region the most digitally connected area in the UK and ultimately lead to a £1 billion boost to the local economy. Work has now begun on a 212km full-fibre, gigabit-capable network infrastructure, capable of delivering speeds of up to 10Gbps, that will help position the Liverpool City Region at the head of the next digital revolution.
When complete, it will put city region businesses in prime position to lead the way in a host of growing sectors, from health and life sciences to Artificial Intelligence and advanced manufacturing.
Experts estimate that with 100% full fibre coverage across the City Region, building on this network, the economic boost could be worth up to £1bn, creating thousands of local job and training opportunities.
We’re delighted to announce Liverpool City Centre will be going live in the New Year.
The early fibre spine will be in place through some of the city centre business and central retail areas. These include areas around the Tithebarn Street, Hatton Garden, Crosshall Street, Mount Pleasant and Rodney Street.
Work to light up the Liverpool city stretch of the network commences in December, meaning from February businesses in the area can take advantage from the new network going live.
We have already had interest from businesses in the area who are excited about the benefits offered by the new full fibre, ultrafast network. From the forefront of digital healthcare to using satellites for pinpoint accurate geographical data; LCR Connect and the link to local data centres will help our business community grow, innovate and continue to succeed.
