Uppingham full fibre optic network goes live
Gigaclear announced in December that its subsidary Rutland Telecom would be coming to parts of Uppingham and the network has now gone live in the North East quarter which includes 'The Beeches'.
The faster broadband service may seem slow if you think of it as a 10 Mbps symmetric service for £37 per month (higher sustained speeds available as option), but the key to it providing anything faster than what other services in the area can offer is that you can burst all the way up to to Gigabit (1 Gbps = 1000 Mbps) speeds.
Gigaclear has built a number of fully fibre optic networks now and has passed some 1,200 homes, which means they have the fibre termination point at the edge of the property, requiring just the final few metres of connection to be made when someone orders the service.
The network is completed in Uppingham as expandion to the Uppingham Gate business park is underway and if demand is shown it will extend further across Uppingham.
