Fibre broadband coming to

Reed

Gigaclear, a company that specialises in providing FTTP (fibre-to-the-premises) broadband in rural areas, has written to the parish clerk advising that it intends to include Reed in a build programme to provide fast broadband. The service would provide speeds of between 200Mbps and 900Mbps down and up depending on the package subscription. So this is not 'up to', it would be fixed and the same speed in both directions. Gigaclear have already completed rollout in many local areas (the Pelhams, Buntingford, Broughing etc.) and are expecting to be live in Reed by the end of 2024, maybe sooner. Cost of the service will be higher than the cheapest OpenReach based services, current average is said to be about £30pm. No doubt this will be welcomed by residents working from home and also by those with children who enjoy on-line gaming (when it is too cold or wet to go to the playground, of course).
