Gigaclear has revealed that 10,000 customers are now signed up to its Gigabit Fibre-to-the-Premise (FTTP/H) service.
The rural fibre broadband provider's network offers speeds of around 1,000Mbps and is available to more than 42,000 homes in rural locations throughout the UK.
Matthew Hare, Chief Executive of Gigaclear, commented: "We delivered our first full fibre network in rural Rutland at the end of 2011 and I’m very proud that in just over five years, Gigaclear has become such a significant challenger in the rural broadband market.
"We are the only network delivering a totally future-proof, full-fibre network that guarantees minimum upload and download speeds of 50Mbps and access to Gigabit speeds in rural areas."
Mr Hare stated that he is looking forward to bringing its service to many tens of thousands more customers in the future, adding "this is just the beginning".
The Roberts family, who live in a village near Cirencester in Gloucestershire, were the 10,000th property to go live on Gigaclear's ultrafast broadband service.
To mark this milestone, Gigaclear awarded the family a smart Samsung 4K TV, so they could fully take advantage of their new internet speeds.
Homeowner David Roberts said: "The company has been brilliant in keeping us updated on progress; it has great customer service and the installation team was incredibly efficient.
"As an ex-businessman myself, I appreciate it when companies put themselves in the customer’s position."
Gigaclear's recent growth has already prompted the company to expand its Oxfordshire-based headquarters.
Work on the revamped premises at Abingdon Business Park has now concluded, making an extra 5,907 square feet of office space available.
