Hyperoptic Bring 1Gbps Broadband to Residents of East Village in London

Posted Wednesday, December 11th, 2013 (10:21 am) by Mark Jackson (Score 598)

City-focused ISP Hyperoptic has announced that its “hyper-sonic” 1000Mbps capable fibre optic broadband (FTTH/B) service is now available to residents of the new East Village neighbourhood, which is perhaps better known as the former Athletes’ Village in Stratford, London (E20).

As a special bonus the new deal means that all of the private rental residents at the East Village development, which is managed by Get Living London, will also receive a free 20Mbps fibre optic broadband service. The package includes a phone service with free local and national calls during evenings and weekends.

However any residents that wish to upgrade to Hyperoptic’s top 100Mbps or 1000Mbps service can do so for the discounted price of just £10 or £20 a month respectively, which will be on a 30-day rolling contract.

Dana Tobak, MD and Co-Founder of Hyperoptic, said:

We are delighted to bring the UK’s fastest and most innovative fibre broadband infrastructure to East Village. The selection by East Village of tomorrow’s – not just today’s – fibre technology clearly represents a real commitment to ‘future proofing’ the scheme and ensuring it stands the test of time.

In addition, Get Living London’s offer of the UK’s best broadband services to its residents in East Village represents a real game changer in terms of recognising fibre broadband as an absolutely essential amenity for the modern home. No longer merely a ‘nice to have’, truly fast and reliable fibre broadband has finally been recognised as essential to not only meeting residents’ expectations but far exceeding them, enabling property owners and managers to compete more effectively in the race for residents.”

The ISP currently hopes to expand this service across as many as 10 new UK cities by the end of 2014, when they hope to reach 80,000 homes. The longer-term aim is to pass 500,000 homes by 2018.

    I recall that the athlete’s village was entirely deployed with FTTP by Openreach prior to the 2012 games.

    Does this announcement mean that Hyperoptic have bought this access network, either from BT or from LOCOG? Or have they overlaid their own network?
