Gigaclear apologises for the delays in the delivery of the full fibre network across its contracted areas in Devon and Somerset.

We are currently building full fibre networks in 31 community areas across Devon and Somerset under the CDS program, providing access to ultrafast broadband speeds for 6500 homes and businesses. At the same time, our commercial build will serve an additional 6400 premises.

Gigaclear is contracted by CDS to provide 47,810 homes and businesses across Devon and Somerset with access to full fibre broadband, and the overall network plan will connect an additional 43,000 homes and businesses commercially.

We are developing a new delivery schedule using new delivery technology and methods to overcome the problems we and our contractors have had to date delivering this network.

On the rollout schedule pages the completion dates for the cabinets in build are shown together with an indication on whether this date has changed. One cabinet build area will be completed sooner than forecast, and 7 will completed be later than previously forecast.

Pending a satisfactory outcome of our planning and negotiations with CDS, they are retaining public subsidy and Gigaclear will continue to build parts of the network in the CDS area at its own financial risk, providing substantial investment of its own.

Regrettably this means a further period of uncertainty over the full fibre roll-out; CDS has made it clear to us that this cannot continue indefinitely. Until the program can be fully re-scheduled and then approved by CDS, those areas currently in build can be seen on the rollout schedule pages by clicking the link above.
