Gigaclear is coming to town... apparently
« on: September 11, 2020, 03:51:20 PM »

Hey guys and gals of the forum. I know I've been a bit absent recently, just felt like I wasn't contributing. This could be the end of my hiatus if I feel like there is something I can do. :)

So, with that out of the way, on with the rest of the post!

I have very recently found out Gigaclear is coming next year (at at least it is commencing then), and it's not a rural environment that typically gets covered. Not complaining, since symmetrical speeds are preferred over asymmetric - even 100/100 would be better than G.fast 330/50 (which is more like 293/48 with overheads) for server work and general uploading, and perhaps I will get it if I am still here when it comes (if it does come).

I am just curious to know from those who live in Gigaclear areas:
  • Did the work start near the scheduled date?
  • How many months was it from when works commenced before you could order?
  • Were there any issues with the installation? Including issues relating to installation preferences (such as location).
I know every area is going to be different, but I wanted to get a general idea of what to expect.

Thanks!

Gigaclear FTTP for 2021? Maybe it's too late.

b*cat raises a paw and waves. July 2020 was that long ago.  :)

I would be happy with 5/5 Mbps DS/US.  :D

Posts were few and far between. Since March, not really much to say. :(

re0 - have i remembered correctly that you are in Cheltenham or have I got you mixed up with someone else?

Only asking as I'm not far from there and haven't heard anything about Gigaclear other than their work in the villages round here as part of the Fastershire project

Believe you have got me mixed up with some other being. :D I may have mentioned something about G.fast in that area before, so it may be related to that. :)

It looks like some towns and even suburbs of cities are being covered. At least there is hope for FTTP in places where Openreach isn't coming anytime soon. :)
