If you live in the remote countryside, broadband speed can be a real problem.
Thankfully, there are providers like Gigaclear, which are dedicated to delivering superfast broadband to rural areas.
Gigaclear was founded in 2010. It’s a fibre to the premises (FTTP) provider of broadband, meaning the internet cables run straight to your home.
It has its own fibre network and aims to give rural communities internet access that rivals cities.
Good news for those who live out in the countryside - Gigaclear mainly covers rural areas in the UK.
Gigaclear currently covers around 65,000 premises across the South West, Midlands, and South East. (August 2020)

Gigaclear offers broadband for both rural homes and businesses.
Gigaclear provides a Linksys powered router with all their broadband packages. This smart hub can easily be extended, to give you greater coverage around the whole house. You can also set up guest Wi-Fi, limit usage with parental control, as well as configure and monitor devices with the Linksys app.
Gigaclear offers four types of standard broadband packages:
All packages come with unlimited usage, an 18-month minimum term with a promise of no price increases during your contract and free installation. However, there’s a £30 activation fee.
You’ll also receive a Gigaclear powered by Linksys router. The two fastest packages also have Smart Wi-Fi delivering a lightning quick connection.
Gigaclear offers four types of broadband for businesses:
All business packages are 24-month contracts with free standard installation and an activation fee of £166.67 (excluding VAT).
If you choose the Business 100 package, you can expect any required maintenance to take place within three working days of you reporting it. With the faster packages, it’s the next working day.
Although your options may be more limited if you live in the countryside, you still need to make sure that you find the best option for you.
