Gigaclear Deploy 1Gbps Broadband to 3 More Rural Oxfordshire UK Villages

Monday, December 1st, 2014 (9:50 am) - Score 1,538

Fibre optic ISP Gigaclear has announced that their 1000Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network is now available to three more rural Oxfordshire (England) villages, including Wootton, Standlake and Forest Hill.

The Abingdon-based Internet provider said they’d also be continuing with further deployments across the remainder of Wootton, including the Boars Hill area. Meanwhile another new FTTP network from Gigaclear will start construction this month across Kingston Bagpuize and Southmoor.

Overall the above work means that Gigaclear’s fibre optic network coverage will reach an additional 3,000 premises (total of roughly 6,500 for Oxfordshire) and “several thousand more” are expected to be added to that total next year with future deployments.

Craig Bower, Boss of the Better Broadband for Oxfordshire Project (BDUK), said:

This focussed investment made by Gigaclear in Oxfordshire provides a significant contribution to meeting our programme objective of ensuring over 95% of properties have access to superfast broadband speeds in the county, enabling us to optimise our public sector investment in Oxfordshire’s communications infrastructure.”

Matthew Hare, CEO of Gigaclear, added:

To get the infrastructure Britain needs for a prosperous future, we need to invest. These new, pure fibre networks will unleash the creative potential from homes and businesses across the country. We are excited to be able to be behind these gigabit Oxfordshire communities.”

So far Gigaclear claims to have invested over £5 million into their existing and next batch of FTTP deployments to residents and businesses in the county of Oxfordshire, the majority of which were previously only able to receive much slower ADSL style broadband speeds (often sub-2Mbps). Related work has predominantly focused on remote rural areas where existing BDUK and BT projects won’t reach.

NOTE: The picture above is from another of Gigaclear’s projects, although the cable duct is usually dug a lot deeper than that.
