GTC Awarded FTTH Contract for Upper Heyford

  • GTC
OXFORDSHIRE, UK - GTC, a nationwide provider of utility infrastructure to the new-build market, announced that it has been awarded the contract to provide gas, electricity and fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) infrastructure networks on the redevelopment of Ministry of Defense land at Upper Heyford, Oxfordshire. As part of a combined utility solution, GTC will be providing superfast FTTH networks to all new homes on the development. GTC’s fiber solution has been chosen to offer the homeowner the highest available speeds at the lowest possible cost.

“Unlike fiber to the cabinet (FTTC), fiber to the home does not suffer from declining speeds with distance from the exchange," said Paul Summers, regional sales manager at GTC. "Laying fiber optic cable right to each home ensures homeowners will be able to enjoy the best of today’s fibee offerings and know that the network is future proofed to support further advances in technology. The fiber connection will be fully installed and ready for use when the homeowner moves in.”

Essential gas and electricity infrastructure will also be provided by GTC to a total of 1,134 plots. GTC’s expertise will manage the complex coordination of the removal of redundant infrastructure and construction of new connections to new homes and existing properties.

The site is being developed by Bovis Homes and The Dorchester Group. Testament to its strong long-term relationships and proven track record with the leading house builders, GTC has been selected to deliver on this multi-utility site by both developers. Bovis Homes and The Dorchester Group will benefit from ease of delivery with just one provider for all three services across the entire development.
