We have connected 63% of the village premises using FTTP. The official launch is this coming Saturday.
Residential users get 50Mbps download, 5Mbps up-load and 100GB/month usage allowance for £50/month
Business users get 50Mbps symmetrical for £100/month, unlimited usage (subject to FUP).
Hambleton Hall Hotel gets a bespoke service and now has, we believe, the fastest broadband for any country house hotel in the UK
Premises can in future upgrade to 1Gbps.
In addition to premises in the village, those across the water can be supplied with 5.8GHz wireless from a wireless node in the village.
The project cost £150k - money raised from the community. Each pre-registered property got a free connection.
The network, which has a dedicated fibre to each property, was installed by Gigaclear, our parent company.
Average speed in the village previously was 0.7Mbps (BT)
