CIA Fire & Security Ltd (CIA) has recently been made aware that Gloucestershire and the surrounding area is being provided with the latest fibre broadband, as part of the council’s Fastershire programme.

CIA is in consultation with the service provider, Gigaclear, to ensure all your alarm communication devices are unaffected.

This is following the announcement stating that Gigaclear has activated its first ultrafast broadband cabinet. The first Fastershire cabinet providing ultrafast broadband is now live and ready to provide fibre broadband to communities including Cockleford, Coberley and Cowley before Christmas. The full rollout schedule to 2017 is available on the Fastershire website.

Fastershire is a partnership between Herefordshire Council, Gloucestershire County Council and BT to build a future proof world class broadband network for the two counties.

Gigaclear is one of the fastest and most reliable broadband networks in the UK. Delivered only to rural areas of England they deliver better broadband than is available to most towns and cities.
