Gigaclear drills under River Severn

Gigaclear has become the first broadband provider to drill under the River Severn to reach two of Gloucestershire’s most remote and poorly connected villages, bringing FTTP to 861 homes in Longney and Framilode.

A horizontal directional drill with 133kn pullback force was imported for the project.    

Peter Pentecost, Regional General Manager at Gigaclear, said: “The scale of this civil engineering task goes to show how passionately we believe in the importance of digital inclusion for all, no matter how rural their chosen home or business is.”
