A UK broadband provider is set to trial 1Gb services in rural Oxfordshire, it has been reported.

Up to 400 homes in Appleton and Eaton will be able to test the new Gigaclear fibre-to-the-premises service, with 120 signed up for the trial already, reports ISPreview.co.uk.

Participants will have the ability to access up to 1,000Mb downloads speeds at certain times, allowing them to access a full range of IT services.

The service will be available from £37 per month, with a one-off connection fee of £100 and a typical installation charge of £85.

David Hine of Appleton Broadband Group said the community has developed an action plan that prioritises keeping its bus service, building a new playground and "getting a decent internet service".

"We have been researching for some time how to obtain fast and reliable broadband access for the whole community and the service that Gigaclear will deliver exceeds our expectations in terms of speed and future proofing," he stated.

"We are very excited about this service as for the first time ever we will have broadband that will be the envy of major cities, allowing local businesses and people working from home to perform as if they were city-based."
