Superfast broadband in West Oxfordshire   ()

We are delighted to announce that, following a rigorous procurement process, we have signed contracts with Gigaclear to bring ultrafast broadband to those parts of rural West Oxfordshire still without a service. The programme is supported by funding from Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), part of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

The project will connect over 4,600 homes and businesses with Fibre to the Premises (FttP) technology, giving them broadband with speeds of up to 1,000Mbps (1Gbps).
 
Work will begin immediately and will be complete by the end of 2019. By this time well over 99% of premises in the district will be able to get superfast broadband. Rollout schedules will be updated regularly and progress can be checked on Gigaclear’s website.

We will continue to monitor the status of properties previously marked as ‘Under Review’ and follow up with the suppliers under whose plans these premises sit.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Council's Broadband Team if you have any further questions in the mean time at broadband@westoxon.gov.uk
