Faster Broadband

From Mark at Fastershire -

 Rollout Update

The Fastershire Broadband Project is a partnership between Gloucestershire County Council and Herefordshire Council to bring faster broadband to the two counties.

Phase 1 of the Fastershire strategy has enabled 109,000 premises to access a broadband connection greater than 30Mbps across the two counties and the project is now working enable those premises that still require access to faster broadband.

Phase 2 in your area will be delivered by Gigaclear, and the network build is due to start in early 2018.  Gigaclear specialise in connecting rural communities and will build a brand new fibre network, providing fibre to the premise (FTTP) access at the boundary of your property and speed to 1000Mbps.

Fastershire also offers an extensive free business support programme designed to help small and medium size businesses get the most from fibre broadband and become more competitive. For more information about our free business support programme, please click here.
