Ultrafast Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) network delivered at Scottish examplar development.
The first homes to be built in Tornagrain, the Highlands newest town near Inverness, have now gone live on GTC’s ultrafast Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) network. As on all GTC sites, every new house will be fibre-ready as homeowners move in.
GTC is delivering FTTH, on behalf of the lead developer Tornagrain Ltd (part of Moray Estates), to the initial phase of 880 new homes being constructed by house builders Zero C and A&J Stephen. The design of the Tornagrain community is based on the architectural and planning traditions of the Highlands but makes use of the latest technology.
Tornagrain will benefit from GTC’s ultrafast fibre-optic Ultrastream300 network which, as well as offering speeds of 300Mbps, now offers users a choice of five Independent Service Providers.
The site is an exemplar under the Scottish Government’s Sustainable Communities initiative and in addition to the new homes will have schools, shops, and offices as well as village parks, tennis courts and allotments.
Homeowners on GTC’s network have a wide range of packages and services available to them covering telephone, broadband and TV. Products are available to suit a wide range of budgets and requirements, and with fibre technology, network speeds can easily be increased in the future to meet customer demand.
Alastair Struthers, Sales Manager of Zero C, commented: “Working with GTC has been a great experience. Their team have been exceptionally helpful in the delivery of the FTTH packages into our homes. The high speeds are unparalleled in the area and so have proved enticing to many of our customers, adding real value to their homes. The new residents have been thrilled with the consistent high speeds they are receiving and ease of getting up and running as soon as they move into their home.”
Lesley Campbell, Commercial Director for Scotland, at GTC, said “We are delighted that the first homes on our FTTH network at Tornagrain in Scotland have gone live. The team in our Scottish office has been working closely with Zero C and A&J Stephen, as we do with all our housebuilder customers, and it is very satisfying to see the new community beginning to emerge.”
