altWork has begun on expanding the capability and reach of the Uppingham Gigaclear 'fibre to the premise' (fttp) broadband network in Uppingham. Pictured is the  infrastructure work recently completed to provide high speed connections for many of the town's additional new homes.

The Uppingham Neighbourhood Plan calls for all new homes to have the option of a high speed 'fibre to the premise' connection to a standard far higher than that offered by the 'fibre to the cabinet and copper to the home' solution currently offered by BT and OpenReach.  Speeds of up to 1Gb (upload and download) are available on the Uppingham Gigaclear network.  Offers from the BT/Digital Rutland project of fttp speeds up to 100mb download and a much lower upload speed are deemed inadequate for Uppingham's economic and social future.
