CityFibre launches new competition

Win kitchen bundle worth £250


CityFibre want to talk to you about fibre. Yes that’s right fibre – but we don’t mean nutrition. We are talking about the full fibre broadband that CityFibre is rolling out across Coventry.

We’re not selling anything – honest! CityFibre puts the infrastructure in place, but it is local internet service providers (ISPs) who deliver the service. We are currently working with Vodafone and TalkTalk in Coventry and more providers are expected to join our network soon – so the choice will always be yours. 


What you need to do next? To be in with a chance of winning the fantastic kitchen bundle worth £250 just in time for Christmas, all you have to do is enter your details using this unique link for Go GV cardholders (takes less than a minute). CityFibre will then let you know when full fibre is available in your area and from which service providers. 

How to enter

Make sure your Go CV account is validated and up to date.

Log in to your account and in the 'My Account' section, see if there's any action you need to take. If your discount level is showing as 1 or 2, you're good to go!

Read full Terms and Conditions. Competition closes on 5 December 2021.

Enter the competition.
