Aiming to improve broadband in rural areas around the UK, Gigaclear is working on bringing its superfast broadband packages to as many locations as possible. Linksys (the router used by Gigaclear) has reinvented the wheel when it comes to traditional WiFi routers, with the option to add additional nodes to provide faster and stronger coverage throughout the entire house.
Gigaclear offers a range of up to four business broadband packages: Business 100, Business 250, Business 500 and Business ULTRA. All these broadband business deals from Gigaclear have download speeds of 100Mbps, 250Mbps, 500Mbps and 900Mbps respectively. All packages are 24 month contracts, with customer phone support available between 8am and 8pm Monday to Friday.
Traditional WiFi routers have limited range and people often suffer with drop outs or slower speeds further from their router, and when extenders are added into the mix, speeds frequently slow down. With a lot of help from the Linksys router and its family of connected nodes, Gigaclear is able to offer ultrafast performance that's able to support streaming on multiple devices across further distances, which is an absolute must in this day and age.
Gigaclear is working hard to bring their superfast fibre to more areas throughout the UK, with networks currently spanning across over 200 communities. Gigaclear prioritise the areas where demand for faster broadband is high, as there is a huge need for improved speeds in more rural areas. Prior to community-installation, Gigaclear will assess the type of equipment needed in order to do as much of an efficient job as possible, aiming to cause as little disruption as possible.
We've already spoken about the Linksys router a little bit, but as it's at the centre of what Gigaclear has to offer, we thought we'd give you a bit more information on each package and what they include.
The Linksys router is the cornerstone of Gigaclear's Smart WiFi, with an app that allows you to swiftly configure and manage your very own network.
Gigaclear's Superfast 30 and Ultrafast 100 come with the standard Linksys router. The slightly more expensive packages Gigaclear has to offer, Ultrafast 300 and Hyperfast 900, come powered by Gigaclear's Smart WiFi, with an extra node for your Linksys router to improve range using Mesh technology. See the average broadband speed for each package below:
Gigaclear plans to provide reliable access to the internet to all, homes and businesses alike. Even as Gigaclear provides the best speeds available to over 65,000 rural homes in over 200 communities, the company won't relent on its growth. With the goal to build and operate the UK's largest fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) network, Gigaclear will be a force to be reckoned with in the broadband market if they can deliver on their word, providing 24/7 customer service to go with their exceptional product.
The 2020 ISPA Awards have named Gigaclear as the UK's Best Rural Broadband Provider, acknowledging both the service they provide, the obstacles they have had to overcome in the process and the partnership with Linksys, the leaders on wireless connectivity that power Gigaclear's WiFi.
Here's what Gareth Williams, CEO of Gigaclear, had to say:
Gareth Williams, CEO of Gigaclear, says, “These awards are like the Oscars of UK broadband and it means so much to us all to be acknowledged for our work undertaking one of the biggest infrastructure projects in the country to connect people who have essentially been failed by the market and left behind with dial-up equivalent internet speeds."
“I think everyone can appreciate how much more miserable and mentally challenging this pandemic would have been if we weren’t able to continue working from home, or stay in contact with friends and family via video calling apps, or keep ourselves entertained with streaming services and our children’s education on track with online learning resources. Unfortunately, there are still communities in rural areas that do not have access to those things. We’re working to reach them if we can.”
