The County Council signed two contracts with Gigaclear in January 2017. These will provide access to ultrafast broadband (up to 1Gbps) to around 6,300 rural premises in the county. Find out more on the Working with Gigaclear page. These plans along with Stages 1 and 2 and commercial telecoms investment takes us over 98% coverage by the end of 2018.
Any areas which remain unable to access fibre broadband remain in scope of the Superfast Northamptonshire project and the County Council will continue to seek solutions through other Stage 3 measures.
