Gigaclear signs Carillion telent to build FTTP in SW England

ABINGDON, UK – Rural broadband specialist Gigaclear has awarded Carillion telent a contract to bring ultrafast full fibre broadband to more than 80,000 properties in some of the most rural parts of South West England.

The work will start immediately, with the first customers coming on stream early in 2018 and the full roll out complete by the end of 2019. Gigaclear’s network will give homes and businesses in the area access to speeds of up to 1Gbps (1,000Mbps), where previously they have struggled with speeds as low as 1Mbps.

Infrastructure investors pour money into British broadband

Britain has a reputation as a backwater when it comes to fibre-optic broadband connections that reach directly into consumer’s homes. Currently, only two per cent of households in the country have access to full fibre connections. But that looks set to change. This summer, some £500 million of equity and new debt have been invested in alternative network providers in the UK.
