FTTP (Gigaclear)

Full Fibre broadband, Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP), went live in Failand in 2019, providing speeds up to 900Mbps independent of location. You can check availability on the Gigaclear site:


Price per month is higher than standard "Fibre", Fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC), but much higher speeds are available and they are independent of location:

£39 (30Mbps), £44 (100Mbps), £49 (300Mbps), £79 (900Mbps).

If you subscribe, Fibre will be run from the recently installed black 'pot' outside your house into your home and connected to a new router provided by Gigaclear.

Gigaclear provide a smart wifi mesh system based on the Linksys Velop router and satellite nodes which should be good at getting the signal around a larger house.

A disadvantage over standard FTTC is that you are stuck with one provider, Gigaclear, rather than having a choice of ISP. 

The main Gigaclear hub is the green cabinet at the end of Sixty Acres Close.  Fibre runs from there to the small green cabinets in each road and from those to the black 'pots' which already contain the connection cables.
