My name is Dom Hones and I am the Community Engagement Manager for your area.
Since 2010, Gigaclear have been working closely with rural communities across England to bring fibre-to-the-premise (FTTP) broadband to where it is needed most and as part of our broadband rollout programme Gigaclear are planning our network build to include Berinsfield. Just like other utilities, building our network involves digging trenches in private land (with permission), the carriageway, verges, and paths. I have attached a copy of our Stakeholder Brochure which explains more about Gigaclear and the work that we do, I have also included a copy of our Frequently Asked Questions document.
In the next couple of weeks, you may see our contractors in the area validating our plans. Validation is when we walk the mapped-out route, identifying details within the plans that may need adjusting to make sure that we can build as planned. We are also in the process of confirming whether Berinsfield residents and businesses are eligible for the Government’s UK Gigabit Voucher (UKGV) Scheme. Once this has been determined I will provide you with further details.
I currently do not have a timeline for when works may commence, but I will keep you updated on our progress. Before we commence excavations, we will write to all residents included in the build programme informing them of the works that are taking place and what to expect during this period. If residents would like to get in touch with us, please ask them to contact our dedicated Network Build Care team on the details below:
