Three expands 5G backhaul deal with CityFibre null

Three has agreed a multi-million pound expansion of its fibre backhaul partnership with CityFibre, strengthening the former’s nationwide 5G rollout.

Backhaul describes the physical connection between base station and an operator’s core network. In the 5G era, fibre backhaul is essential if operators are to manage the expected increases in mobile traffic and power services that require ultra-low latency.
