Super Fast Gigaclear Broadband

At the public meetings held in Croughton and Aynho Gigaclear announced that they had sufficient interest in their scheme to allow them to begin taking orders for the new Superfast Broadband which they hope to install in the two villages in the spring of 2015.

The basic package they offer gives speeds of 50Mbps download & upload, and as an incentive for those that sign up now they will provide 100Mbps at no extra cost for the first 12 months. This compares with the current service we can get which is (at best) 5Mbps down and 2Mbps up.  Gigaclear require an initial 30% uptake (which their backers demand) to allow them to proceed with the project so you should place your order with Gigaclear now. You can do this on their web site: 
www.gigaclear.com 

As of the 8th December we are only half way there - please sign quickly or we will lose this opportunity.

Representatives of the company will contacting every property in the village, before Christmas to explain the scheme more fully in the hope of obtaining the 30% required. The Gigaclear proposal offers a much better service than would be available from BT if and when it ever comes here and it may be another ten years before an opportunity like this comes round again. At the Aynho meeting a national newspaper was quoted as saying that properties in areas with Superfast Broadband are valued as much as 20% more than those that are not. We have an opportunity to become one of the best connected villages in the area. So please don't be a “wait and see” because if we don’t get this new service the existing service will just get slower and slower over the coming years.
