Gigaclear Target 1Gbps FTTP Broadband for Welland Valley Villages

Fibre optic (FTTP) broadband provider Gigaclear appears to be looking to expand its presence across Northamptonshire and into Leicestershire (England) by inviting a selection of communities in the Welland Valley area to register their interest in the service.

As part of this effort Gigaclear are inviting citizens initially in Blaston, Bringhurst, Cranoe, Drayton, Hallaton, Horninghold, Medbourne, Nevill Holt, Slawston, Ashley, Brampton Ash, Dingley, Stoke Albany, Sutton Bassett and Weston by Welland to register their interest (http://www.gigaclear.com/registerme).

At present the related villages exist “completely outside” of the Government’s existing “fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) roll-out with BT through the Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) programme and so Gigaclear has moved in, although being demand-led means they’ll only agree to deploy the service if sufficient interest can be created.

Matthew Hare, CEO of Gigaclear, said:

With new pure fibre networks currently in build “next door” in Rutland and Northamptonshire, we have had a large number of registrations from the Welland Valley. That’s why we’re happy to support the communities from the Welland Valley to link up, speak out and take action against slow broadband connections. We want to accelerate these families and burgeoning businesses to Gigabit speeds.”

Gigaclear is holding 3 community events in the area for residents to find out more about how they can benefit from the 1000Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premise (FTTP) network. The details of those are as follows.

* Tuesday 25th November, 19:30-21:30, Ashley Village Hall, Ashley Social Centre, Main St, LE16 8HG

* Weds 26th November, 19:30-21:30, The Stenning Hall, Horn Lane Hallaton Leics. LE16 8UB

* Thurs 27th November, 19:30-21:30, Medbourne Village Hall, 8 Main Street, Medbourne, Market Harborough, Leicestershire, LE16 8DT

    Just to let you know that the leics parishes of the Welland valley are now accepting orders and when it gets to 35%, the network will be build as the 30% interest level has already been exceeded. These parishes include Drayton, Medbourne, Hallaton, Hornighold, Blaston, Cranoe, Slawton and Nevill Holt and Glooston.

    Hi my parents live in Stoke Albany and their Internet speed has never been the best but for the last month it has been non existent. Their exchange box is in Dingley who are due to get fibre optic this year but this doesn’t seem to be extending out to the surrounding villages?!!!!
    Is there anything that can be done to even improve the existing service so they can at least get on the Internetrain they are paying for?

    Regards
