Gigaclear has announced plans to upgrade its Rutland Telecom managed network in the rural market town of Uppingham (Leicestershire) with a new 1Gpbs (Gigabits per second) capable fibre optic broadband (FTTP) service, which will be priced from £37 per month.

Rutland Telecom, which is owned by Gigaclear, already serves the area via a Sub-Loop Unbundled (SLU) broadband ADSL2+ service and a free wireless internet (Wi-Fi) hotspot that covers the centre of town. But clearly the operator has found enough interest in its more expensive FTTP network to warrant further expansion.

Ron Simpson, Secretary of Uppingham First (Community Partnership), said:

Uppingham First and the Forum have been working with Gigaclear and Rutland Telecom for over 12 months to bring about today’s announcement. The new fibre to the premises (FTTP) network will help ensure Uppingham’s future as one of the UK’s most desirable market towns in which to live, work, play and visit.

Particularly attractive to the local tax payer is the fact that the network will be built using only private investments. The Uppingham First partnership expects the new ultrafast broadband network in the town to bring substantial economic and social benefits to this vibrant community.”

The service, which is expected to take three months to build, will initially cover the North East quarter of Uppingham including ‘The Beeches’ and Uppingham Gate business park. Once complete, Gigaclear will look to extend the network into other parts of Uppingham and surrounding areas based on demand.
