Gigaclear builds networks using commercial investment but it has also been awarded contracts as part of the Government-subsidised BDUK programme. Since December 2016, Gigaclear has been selected as the preferred supplier for new a range of new BDUK contracts for Ultrafast networks in rural areas including areas in Devon and Somerset, Northamptonshire and Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.
The Gigaclear team needed a solution that could provide responses without delay for many types of third parties, including other asset owners, contractors, councils, landowners, farmers and the general public.
Adam Lancefield, Lead Planner, Gigaclear commented:
“We are very happy to be joining the growing collection of asset owners on LSBUD. The service gives us excellent protection for our assets and provides a quick and effective solution for third parties to search and locate our network. Before joining the service, we spent a significant amount of time dealing with the small number of requests that we received. Since joining the LSBUD service the number of requests has grown 10-fold but has not had any impact on the Gigaclear Team.”
Richard Broome, Managing Director of LSBUD, said:
“We are really pleased to welcome Gigaclear as the latest Telecoms operator to protect its assets via the service. It was clear that Gigaclear’s key driver was a solution to provide excellent customer service through providing detailed information that allowed them to work safely and efficiently.
With asset owners from all sectors enjoying the benefits of LSBUD Membership, it is increasingly clear that the LSBUD service is the market leading “One Call” solution in the UK.”
