Gigaclear Confirm Otmoor in Oxfordshire Next for 1Gbps FTTP Broadband

Thursday, Mar 20th, 2014 (3:44 pm) - Score 509

Fibre optic broadband ISP Gigaclear has confirmed that the rural community of Otmoor (Ot Moor) in Oxfordshire (England) will be the next to benefit from a roll-out of its 1000Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based network.

The area, which currently suffers from fixed line broadband speeds that rarely manage more than 1Mbps of speed, comprises around 700 properties across six local villages including Beckley, Elsfield, Horton cum Studley, Noke, Stanton St. John and Woodeaton.

Lorraine Dixon, Otmoor Broadband Champion, said:

We had heard how Gigaclear’s network has successfully transformed internet access in other Oxfordshire villages, and were interested replicating this in Otmoor. We held an initial meeting in the village hall and in reality, Gigaclear’s fibre to the home product sold itself. Demand for the network from residents, including young people keen to embrace social media, has been high since the start.”

Matthew Hare, CEO of Gigaclear, added:

Momentum for Gigaclear continues to grow as more underserved rural communities discover how ultrafast fibre optic broadband is already transforming Internet use in neighbouring villages. The six communities in Otmoor will substantially expand the number of customers in Oxfordshire served by Gigaclear’s fibre to the premises network.

Once complete, Gigaclear will have invested over £3 million in improving the Oxforshire’s communications infrastructure, helping make the county one of the best places in the world to live and work.”

Apparently network construction at Otmoor is due to begin in May 2014 and the new “ultrafast” broadband service will be fully operational by the end of August. Further details can be found on the Otmoor Broadband page and Gigaclears related section here.
