The Faringdon exchange is connected to a street cabinet in Great Coxwell, and this is where we get our telephone and broadband service from. If BT were to upgrade this cabinet and connect it to the Faringdon exchange with fibre then we could also take advantage of significantly faster broadband from many different suppliers. Unfortunately BT have no plans to do this.
Therefore we have 2 choices. Remain on the poor broadband service we currently enjoy (not). Or sign up with Gigaclear. Gigaclear are looking to install fibre in Great Coxwell, Coleshill, Little Coxwell and Buscot Wick and to every home. This will mean significantly faster broadband then even the residents of Faringdon now get. Starting at 50MB and up to 1GB download speeds. Without the need of a phone line. You can also get your telephone calls delivered over this service and keep your existing telephone number. This means you can cancel your telephone line rental, currently just under £18 per month.
However, in order for Gigaclear to invest in Great Coxwell and the other villages, they need orders. Please visit www.gigaclear.com for further information and to sign up for fibre broadband. Our local Gigaclear rep is Sean Graham and his contact number is 07818416868.
I have no declaration of interest in this other than wanting faster broadband! Please sign up so we can get investment into the village.
