Gigaclear takes registrations from Welland Valley homes and businesses as no rural community can afford to be left behind by the digital revolution

Gigaclear, the ultrafast, pure fibre broadband networks provider, is taking ‘registrations of interest’ in communities across Leicestershire and Northamptonshire in the Welland Valley. In the next step towards the deployment of future-proofed, Gigabit speed internet connections to homes and businesses across Northamptonshire and Leicestershire, Gigaclear is 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 in getting a future proofed, new pure fibre broadband network at www.gigaclear.com/registerme. Almost all these communities are completely outside of the BT deployment area being subsidised by BDUK.

Gigaclear encourages residents who are continually thwarted by unreliable and slow broadband speeds to register their interest in consistent and reliable speeds of up to 1000Mbps (1Gbps). Residents would be able to access all available Internet content and applications no matter how many family members are online, whether they are working or accessing entertainment, whatever the weather conditions or the time of the day.

Matthew Hare, Chief Executive, Gigaclear commented:
“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 fastest broadband network in the country.
