Full fibre arrives in Avening, Gloucestershire

The village Avening has started to see its FTTP roll-out from Gigaclear. The map shows the postcodes where coverage is available today but more premises in the village and surrounding areas look set to be in the roll-out plan.


Are there any figures available for what percentage of the Fastershire areas to be covered by Gigaclear are complete? I know from other recent news that areas 2&3c have reached around 7%. Unfortunately Gigaclear don't provide any dates for the remaining rollout.

It might be possible to arrive at something, but cannot be certain if what we think the final footprint will be is going to be the actual final footprint.

We'd rather put the effort into spotting the live bits of networks

Fair enough. I'm looking forward to Minsterworth going live within a few months - I had been told that my area was (indirectly) dependent upon that, but now it seems the backhaul for my area will come from the south - where there is currently nothing at all. But if they finish Minsterworth they may have some effort available for area they haven't started yet. Maybe?
