Underriver FTTH from Gigaclear delivering ultra-fast broadband

A lot more fibre in the diet for those who live, work and go to school in the Underriver area of Kent. Gigaclear has been working to delivering the service to the area for some months now and to celebrate the first live connections two open days at Sevenoaks Preparatory School will be held on the 25th October and 15th November 2014.

"We are on the verge of a revolution in the way we all learn, enabled by the Internet. At school, at work and at home, fast, symmetric broadband such as provided by Gigaclear will give us the opportunity to take advantage of new remote learning opportunities throughout our lives. Gigaclear is proud to be a part of this revolution.

Matthew Hare, Chief Executive, Gigaclear

While many of the residents are already convinced of the advantages of FTTH compared to the slow 2 to 3 Mbps they had to survive on previously the open days will provide a chance for others to see the connection working and also for those seeking answers to questions such as how to connect their Smart TV to their new fast services.

The first speed tests in the area over the Gigaclear network were seen on 25th September in the Godden Green area, but with the rise of IP block transfers were mis-identified as a Mailbox IP block, we have updated our detection system on the speed test for any future speed tests.
