Gigaclear has begun work on its 1Gb fibre broadband network in rural Oxfordshire.

The broadband provider is constructing a fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) network around the villages of Frilford and Frilford Heath, with a view to extending in to Cothill.

Plans for the ultra-fast broadband network were announced in late 2012, however it has taken until now for Gigaclear to secure the required number of pre-registrations.

Matthew Hare, Chief Executive Officer at Gigaclear, noted that many small business owners living in rural communities stand to benefit from faster broadband.

"[They] elect to avoid the commute and the cost of separate business premises by operating from home," he stated.

"The challenge is getting adequate upload and download speeds without paying prices that would make even large organisations wince.

Mr Hare said business customers, in or near to an area in which Gigaclear is building, can get a range of FTTP products and services "at a significantly reduced price".

"We expect demand to keep on growing," he stated.
