WIN - new CityFibre competition

CityFibre III

Is your 2022 all about being fitter and healthier? Do you need a bit of motivation to continue … or even get started?  Then read on because we want to talk to you about fibre and we are not talking carbs!

We are talking about CityFibre the organisation investing £72m to roll out full fibre broadband infrastructure right across Coventry to make it one of the best digitally connected places on the planet.

Full fibre brings an end to dropped calls and the dreaded buffer symbol and allows everyone in your home to work, play, game, and stream… seamlessly.

Think you already have full fibre?  The chances are you haven’t - if your router connects to a telephone socket, think again!  You’re probably using a network that was designed to carry sound and that’s not ideal for today’s data-hungry homes! 

Residents of Coventry now is the time to demand better broadband – and get it! If you want your broadband to give you the greatest levels of reliability and speeds – now it is possible.

But we’re not selling anything – honest! CityFibre puts the infrastructure in place, allowing you to access full fibre broadband through a range of local internet service providers (ISPs) who deliver the service.  In Coventry we are currently working with Vodafone, TalkTalk, Zen and Gigabit Networks 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 bundle worth £350, 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. Last year two lucky Go CV cardholders won prizes, Lyn received a £500 tech bundle in the spring and just before Christmas Darryl won a £250 kitchen bundle – this time it could be you!

Enter the competition 

Good luck!

You can read the full Terms and Conditions online, but the main things you need to know are that you must be aged 18+; you must have a Go CV account, the competition is strictly one entry per household and the winner must consent to publicity – that’s only because we want to show you that competitions like this have real winners. Only entries received between 1 February and 31 March 2022 will be valid.
