Specialising in broadband supply to rural areas, Gigaclear was founded in 2010 by Matthew Hare, 55, with the funds from the sale of his previous company, CI-Net. The Oxfordshire firm has connected more than 16,000 rural customers to broadband in 22 counties. It is developing a full-fibre rural network across the UK and plans to connect an additional 300,000 properties within the next three years, a project it says will require funding of £450m. Sales reached £7.4m last year, with Mike Surrey 51, taking over as interim chief executive in June this year.
