Tregaron Encouraged to Embrace Ultrafast Broadband Transformation

Openreach is calling on residents in Tregaron to participate in a campaign aimed at bringing ultrafast and highly reliable full fibre broadband to local homes and businesses. The company emphasizes that the community could miss out on a unique opportunity for a full fibre upgrade if they do not apply for free UK Government broadband vouchers, which can unlock faster speeds and improved reliability.

By joining the initiative, Tregaron residents can become part of the nearly 16,000 homes and businesses across Ceredigion that already have access to full fibre broadband. Eligibility can be checked, and vouchers can be pledged on the Connect My Community website.

Through the Government’s Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme and the introduction of new broadband signal boosting technology, the reach of ultrafast broadband has been extended to thousands of remote rural communities. Openreach has identified Tregaron as a strong candidate for Full Fibre and encourages residents to take the next step by applying for and combining free UK Government Gigabit Vouchers to support the network’s construction.

Utilizing these cost-free vouchers allows Openreach to collaborate with local communities to establish a customized, co-funded network. The vouchers can be aggregated to expand the ultrafast, highly reliable network to premises in remote rural areas that might not otherwise receive coverage through private investment.

Martin Williams, Openreach’s Partnership Director for Wales, expressed excitement about the opportunity for Tregaron residents to access the benefits of ultrafast, highly reliable full fibre broadband. He emphasized the importance of collective effort in making Tregaron one of the best-connected places in the UK.

Williams stated, “Our Fibre Community Partnership programme has enabled us to include hundreds more communities across Wales and the UK in our Full Fibre build plans. However, extending the network to these harder-to-reach locations remains challenging, which is why it requires collaboration between residents, neighbors, and Openreach.”

He further added, “Everyone who pledges a voucher will be contributing to making Tregaron one of the best-connected places in the UK. We’re investing £15 billion to build full fibre broadband to 25 million homes, with over six million of those in the most challenging areas. However, we cannot accomplish this nationwide upgrade alone, and government support plays a crucial role in this process.”
