Your community may be eligible for Gigaclear if the answer is yes, to the following questions
- Are you a village in a rural location
- Does your community have 400 properties or more? (We need nearly 1000 properties across adjacent villages to start a new network build, or typically 400 properties when adjacent to an existing network)
- Do you have slow broadband with no plans of an upgrade?
If you believe all the answers are yes then register your interest now.
Our investment in funding and building new networks is based on demand and eligibility, each new community, once qualified, must start with a 30% sign up level to be eligible for Gigaclear (note we don’t take any money from anyone until their service is installed and working). We will work with you and your community, ideally with a community broadband group to measure the level of interest and see if your community can become a Gigaclear community. This simply ensures that the investment made is the right one for Gigaclear and your community. To make the process even easier we help your local community, the Parish, District and County Council by holding community events and campaigns, where we answer any questions about the build, the technology, how it works and what the impact will be. We are honest and open in all our communications so you can sign up with confidence to our service, and trust in us to help make your community amongst the best connected in the country.
And, with 25 villages already online with ultrafast fibre-to-the-premises broadband and another 50 in the process of installation and development this year along with more than double that planned for next, we are confident that Gigaclear will be an easy choice for your community to make.
