Ultra Fast Broadband for Rural Communities

Gigaclear Networks designs, builds and operates new, full fibre, gigabit broadband networks in rural areas. Established in 2010, their network now reaches more than 200 communities across 20 counties to date.  They are working hard to reach 500,000 premises by 2022 to provide rural residential and business properties with the UK’s best broadband to allow them to work, communicate, play, study anytime all the time. Gigaclear Networks builds new networks using two investment models. The first communities were connected using investor funds and they continue to invest commercially in rural communities where there is a demand for better broadband. The second investment model is under the BDUK (Broadband Delivery UK) scheme, working with Local Bodies where we bid for and may be awarded a contract that part subsidises the build of new superfast broadband networks.
