Work is getting underway to bring ultrafast broadband access to villages near Peterborough.

Gigaclear is starting the installation across the villages of Ashton, Bainton, Barnack, Helpston, Pilsgate, Southorpe, Kings Cliffe and Tallington near Peterborough.

The first phase of the new network, covering villages Ufford, Southorpe, and portions of Barnack has just begun.

The works will continue until all the villages are connected and live which is expected to be in June.

Matthew Hare, chief executive of Gigaclear said: “We’re thrilled by the level of enthusiasm shown by the local community here and look forward to future-proofing more communities in Cambridgeshire.

He added: “Ultrafast, pure fibre networks are the way forward to safeguard everyone’s ability to communicate, work and play.”
