Kloud9 Brings High-Speed Broadband to Rural Shropshire

Kloud9, in partnership with BDUK and Connecting Shropshire, is transforming broadband connectivity in rural Shropshire. Following the installation of FTTP for over 200 properties in Ditton Priors, Kloud9 has rolled out its ultrafast gigabit broadband services to further areas in Shropshire, including Cleehill, Cressage, and Clun.

Each village now has 300 to 400 properties with access to ultrafast fibre broadband. Kloud9 delivered these projects at an impressive pace, completing them all within six months.

This achievement was enabled by Kloud9’s expertise, government support, and local collaboration, leveraging initiatives like the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme.

Julie Bushell, Kloud9’s Community Engagement Manager, commented: “Providing rural communities with access to gigabit broadband is now a necessity in today’s digital landscape. It’s a privilege to collaborate closely with the communities and stakeholders across Shropshire to make this vision a reality.”

Kloud9 remains committed to advancing digital connectivity across Shropshire and the UK. With ongoing installations and connections in Cleehill, Cressage, and now Clun, Kloud9 continues to lead in delivering reliable, high-speed internet solutions to underserved communities.

Mandy Newton, the first resident connected in Clun, shared her experience with Kloud9: “For the past few months in Clun, we have seen a lot of installation work going on for the new high-speed fibre communications systems. We signed up with Kloud9 and are happy to say we were connected yesterday – the first house in Clun to be connected to Kloud9! The engineers and all the staff have been very efficient and friendly, and whenever you need to call them the good thing is that you get through straight away to someone in the UK.”

Kloud9’s efforts in these rural communities are part of a broader commitment to enhancing digital connectivity across Shropshire and the UK. With numerous projects in the pipeline, Kloud9 is eager to continue its work in Shropshire and beyond under the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme.

Cllr. Robert Macey, Portfolio Holder for Culture & Digital at Shropshire Council, said: “I’m pleased that AJ Technology has benefitted from Shropshire Council top-up funding of DSIT’s Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme. This additional funding has enabled AJ Technology to work at pace to install their full-fibre broadband network in some of Shropshire’s more rural communities, bringing them into the digital fast lane.”
