TalkTalk and CityFibre agree new strategic B2B partnership


TalkTalk and CityFibre have agreed a strategic partnership to accelerate their B2B Ethernet offering to the wholesale community. 
TalkTalk’s Business Wholesale Services (TTBWS) division is to partner with CityFibre to offer more choice to UK wholesale customers by giving partners access to CityFibre’s differentiated business Ethernet infrastructure, which will in turn deliver compelling pricing, increased flexibility and greater confidence to customers.

The agreement builds on the existing strong relationship between TalkTalk, Virtual1, which was acquired by TTBWS in March 2022, and CityFibre. As a result of this new B2B partnership, CityFibre’s highly differentiated Ethernet proposition will now be  made available across the TTBWS business.
CityFibre’s rapid network expansion will also ensure that the opportunity with TTBWS continues to grow, with increasing numbers of TTBWS customers able to enjoy greater diversity, future-proof network coverage and economics.
The partnership forms part of TalkTalk’s altnet strategy, growing providers across numerous products from FTTP to Ethernet. It is expected a number of other Ethernet suppliers will join the platform over next year, and TalkTalk believes a third of new Ethernet connection could go to altnets, including CityFibre.
Tom O’Hagan, Managing Director of TalkTalk Business Wholesale Services, commented: “The potential of our ongoing relationship is really exciting. CityFibre is already the largest alternative network, and this new B2B partnership opportunity will continue to grow as its footprint expands and product portfolio widens.  TTBWS see CityFibre as a key partner and together we offer our customers  unrivalled solutions in the Ethernet space.”
George Wareing, Chief Sales Officer, CityFibre, added: “TalkTalk Business Wholesale Services is a truly exciting partner through which to extend the reach of our innovative Ethernet products. The combination of TTBWS’s scale and automation, with our growing portfolio of differentiated business connectivity products represents a compelling proposition in the industry.  We’re delighted that TTBWS see the benefits that access to these products will bring their customers across the country and we look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
