On Monday, Lisa (our clerk) met with Gigaclear managers to understand the basics of their installation in the Parish. Her notes are here.

In addition, Gigaclear have provided a spreadsheet of roadworks, with the actual closures, traffic lights etc being shown on roadworks.org in the normal way.

Glynn from Gigaclear is expected to attend November’s meeting of the Parish Council.

Ultrafast Broadband : Gigaclear

This is a message from Sarah Naylor of Superfast Northamptonshire at NCC. We are due to have Ultrafast broadband by the end of the year, with work starting shortly.


Installing the network and making good afterwards

This will involve temporarily digging up pavements and roads to enable Gigaclear to lay full fibre cabling underground and also to install connection points outside the boundary of every property. All residents and businesses will be informed as soon as their connection is ready and they can take full advantage of the ultrafast broadband speeds available if they wish to place an order for services.

All works, which may cause disruption on the highway or pavements in order to complete the fibre installation, will be reinstated to Highways Authorities and Utilities Committee standards.

Keeping you informed

Gigaclear will provide channels of communication to help answer questions. They are also happy to attend a parish meeting to explain more about the rollout.

Further details of the areas covered in the project, and other useful information, can be found on Gigaclear’s and the Superfast Northamptonshire project websites, see links below.
