Voneus is partnering with Gigaclear to accelerate the adoption of ultrafast broadband services in rural communities across the UK. The partnership sees Voneus become a Gigaclear Retail Services Provider (RSP), offering residential and business customers a wide range of broadband services over Gigaclear’s fibre network, with the ability to deliver ultrafast with speeds of up to 1,000Mbps (1 Gbps).
Through the partnership with Voneus, Gigaclear can expand its existing fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network of more than 200 communities across 20 counties in the UK, by adding new customers to its ultrafast network.
“Just like Voneus, Gigaclear is entirely focused on bridging the digital divide for those rural communities which, for far too long, have been stuck in the broadband slow lane,” said Paul Lawrence, director of strategic partnerships at Voneus. “By joining forces, the two companies can offer genuinely high-speed broadband services while at the same time cut waiting times. This partnership will provide rural communities with internet speeds that exceed those available in urban centres.”
The village of Rode in Somerset is one of the first communities set to benefit from this new partnership.
“Voneus’ reputation for delivering excellent customer service, its understanding of the challenges associated with connecting rural communities, as well as its ambitious plans to grow its network footprint and range of services, make it an ideal retail partner,” said Joe Frost, business development director, Gigaclear. “Together we can provide rural communities with a range of future-proofed broadband services that will help them thrive, both socially and economically.”
