Engineering work is getting underway in October to connect more than 1,600 homes in Horspath to full fibre broadband.
The work is part of an £76 million investment by Abingdon-based Gigaclear to expand its full-fibre network to underserved market towns and communities in Oxfordshire.
Work in the village is due for completion towards the end of next year, with the first residents having access by spring 2024.
Senior Project Manager Ian Hughes-Williams said: “There are many great benefits to living in rural communities such as Horspath, but having access to the fastest broadband speeds is not necessarily an obvious one.
“That’s because people living in large towns and cities, on average, enjoy much faster speeds than people in rural locations. However, Gigaclear’s mission is to address this gap.
“We’re investing more in rural Oxfordshire than in almost any other county to make sure residents living in communities such as Horspath are just as able to work from home, stream online entertainment, scroll and gameplay as people living in more urban areas.”
During the engineering work, Gigaclear will be utilising existing Openreach ducts and poles wherever possible in order to minimise disruption.
