Fibre to the premises is coming to Northmoor!

The Northmoor, Moreton and Bablockhythe community broadband team is delighted to announce that the the competitive procurement process run on our behalf by West Oxfordshire District Council has selected Gigaclear to build and operate our network.

The decision was arrived at through an in-depth tendering process and we were very pleased to have several credible bids to consider, proposing a number of different technical solutions.

The Gigaclear network will provide direct fibre connection to every single one of the 521 premises in the community, giving residents true next-generation superfast connections to the internet.  Equally important is the affordability of the service, with tariffs starting from £23 a month.

All this is possible due to grant support from the Rural Community Broadband Fund, administered by DEFRA.
