Gigaclear Confirm 1Gbps Fibre Broadband for Fyfield and Tubney in 2013

Thursday, December 6th, 2012 (1:13 pm) - Score 791

UK ISP Gigaclear has today confirmed that the two Oxfordshire villages of Fyfield and Tubney (England) can expect to receive ultra-fast broadband speeds of up to 1Gpbs (Gigabits per second) via a new fibre optic (FTTP) network from early 2013.

The work, which will begin this month and take three months to complete (i.e. by the end of Q1-2013), will mean that local homes and businesses will no longer have to suffer existing internet connection speeds of less than 1Mbps.

Steve Fraser, Clerk of the Local Parish Council, said:

Broadband speeds to properties in the villages are influenced by the distance from the telecoms cabinet, the quality of the copper wire, the time of the day and even the weather.

Degradation of service is frustrating for everyone and can make it impossible for those wanting or needing to work in the area. Local businesses are part of the life-blood of villages like Fyfield and Tubney, so when the communities came together to celebrate the Jubilee earlier this year it was decided something had to be done for everyone’s sake.”

The new project, which follows a recent investment boost that will be used to “substantially accelerate” the roll-out of related fibre optic broadband services, was unofficially confirmed last month but has only now been officially announced; even though it’s been stated on Gigaclear’s website for several weeks.

Once live customers can expect to pay from £37 a month for the symmetric 10Mbps service (offers burst speeds up to 1000Mbps) and a £100 connection fee also applies.
