Rural development

Persimmon Homes quickly recognised the competitive advantage GTC’s blazing fast Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) technology could bring to its rural development in the heart of the Norfolk Broads. The solution GTC provided was not only cutting edge but part of a seamless utility provision delivered under one agreement by one provider and included gas and electricity networks to energise all 150 homes.

Future proof technology

GTC’s FTTH technology delivers fibre-optic cable all the way to the home, rather than simply utilising copper cable to connect to a local fibre-enabled cabinet. More importantly, the GTC network is gigabit-capable, with infinite network potential, easily able to keep pace with the on-demand services of the future.

Homeowners at The Pastures benefit from the fastest broadband speeds available with a consistent and reliable service 24/7, enabling busy families to work, stream, chat and download at the same time on a network that delivers a superior online experience.

“The Pastures is situated on the bank of the River Yare, just seven miles from Norwich City Centre. While enjoying an enviable rural location in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, it is vital that we also provide our customers with homes fitted with the latest in available technologies. Fibre-to-the-Home gives our customers next-generation superfast broadband and provides the flexibility and high-speed access required for both work and leisure. The service will be a key differentiator between our properties and others in the area that rely on slow copper connections.”

Andrew Fuller, Managing Director, Persimmon Homes
