Superfast Broadband Update

Northamptonshire County Council's partnership with Gigaclear is well underway. Through the Superfast Northamptonshire project, we are making good progress on bringing ultrafast broadband to properties in rural areas of Northamptonshire which currently have low broadband speeds. This means that these areas will benefit from the fastest broadband speeds available in the UK.

We are pleased to let you know that the Gigaclear team will be starting work shortly in the Ashby St Ledger cabinet area and this includes properties in Crick.

Below is what will happen during this time and we would be grateful if you could circulate this information further with parish councillors and the local community.

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 course 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.

For more information I attach a copy of Gigaclear's Parish Pack leaflet.
