Through investing, managing and operating FTTH open access networks globally, VX Fiber can now supply cities with ultra-fast broadband services to residents and businesses.

The software has already been a major success in countries such as Germany, South Africa and it’s native Sweden, and last year Stoke-on-Trent city council became the first local authority in the UK to sign up.

One of the beneficiaries of VXFiber is communication providers such as radio stations and telecoms who have seen an increase in customer satisfaction whilst they have been using VXFiber.
