Over 90 public sector and local authority sites in Oxfordshire now have access to full fibre as Neos Networks hits a milestone on the GigaHubs project.

The project is set to deliver broadband upgrades for over 175 public sector sites across Oxfordshire by the end of 2023. Neos is working with Oxfordshire County Council with funding from BDUK.

The project began at the end of 2021 with four of the eight delivery milestones having been completed.

Part of a 20-year deal, the project sees Neos act as an aggregator bringing together connectivity suppliers including Openreach, Virgin Media Business and Gigaclear.

Councillor Glynis Phillips, Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Corporate Services said: “Transforming broadband infrastructure across the county is providing a springboard to improve the services we provide to our community.”

Sarah Mills, CRO at Neos Networks, added: “We are in the process of rolling out new fibre across the region in areas that have traditionally suffered from limited access to connectivity and digital services.

As part a commitment to improving connectivity in rural locations, Faringdon Library and Woodcote Community Centre are two of the first to receive fibre under the project.
