They probably won’t make anything as other suppliers are now offering Gigabit service a lot cheaper.

£7.0m new business is a hypothetical figure and not guaranteed. Just like Southend, it won’t be feasible for CityFibre to provide its own ‘Alternative Network’ on a Shoestring Budget and will have to rely on using BT’s ducts and poles. More revenue for BT.
