Northmoor Broadband contract signed

The Northmoor, Bablockhythe and Moreton broadband project team are pleased to announce that after more than two years of work, the legal contract between our chosen supplier, Gigaclear, and West Oxfordshire District Council has been signed.

This follows the formal approval late last week of our State Aid application and our DEFRA funding agreement under the Rural Community Broadband Fund. These final legal steps are all now complete and Gigaclear will begin building the project very soon.  These legal processes could only be finalised after the open procurement process had been completed and a supplier selected.

More information will be made available on this website as the build process starts. For local residents there will be an event today, the 7th of May, at 18:30 at the Red Lion in Northmoor, and another event next Wednesday. You can find out more here. Our local community representative can also be reached for questions, and will be visiting every property in the area as part of the build process. His contact details and answers to common questions can be found on the FAQ page.

The entire project team are very happy to have reached this point after so much work – superfast broadband is coming to Northmoor, Bablockhythe and Moreton!
