UK fibre network provider Gigaclear is ready to move beyond England, interim CEO Mike Surrey told ISPreview. Surrey said he believes "market forces driven by competition" will deliver the best outcome for the market. The ISP said it has been shortlisted for Scotland's GBP 600 million Reaching 100 percent (R100) project, which aims to bring 30 Mbps+ broadband to all by the end of 2021. There are prospects for more contracts in other parts of England and possibly also Wales.
