Gigaclear Deploy 1000Mbps Fibre Broadband to Frilford in Oxfordshire UK

Wednesday, Feb 27th, 2013 (9:26 am) - Score 769

ISP Gigaclear has begun work to install its new 1000Mbps (1Gbps) capable fibre optic broadband (FTTP) network around the small rural civil parish hamlet of Frilford and Frilford Heath (eventually including Cothill) in Oxfordshire (England), which will be priced from £37 per month.

Gigaclear first revealed their plans to cover the community late last year (here) but the area only recently exceeded the number of orders needed (at least 30% of locals must sign-up before they can begin work). The ISP typically targets rural communities, specifically those with at least 400 properties, which have been left neglected by BT and other operators.

Matthew Hare, Gigaclears CEO, said:

Many small business owners living in rural locations such as Frilford and Frilford Heath elect to avoid the commute and the cost of separate business premises by operating from home. The challenge is getting adequate upload and download speeds without paying prices that would make even large organisations wince.

Business customers, in or near to an area in which Gigaclear is building, can get a range of access products and services at a significantly reduced price/Mbps – plus the same residential benefits enjoyed by their neighbours. We expect demand to keep on growing.”

The ISP expects that the new service will become available to locals from April 2013 and it anticipates having everyone connected during May 2013. Several other communities in Rutland and Oxfordshire are due to benefit from similar work over the next few months.
