Keycom and Vision Fibre Media Bring 1Gbps Broadband to Homes in Chelsea

Wednesday, Apr 2nd, 2014 (10:13 am) - Score 1,556

Residents of the Kings Chelsea development in London (England) can now benefit from “ultra-fast” broadband speeds of up to 1000Mbps (Megabits per second) after Keycom and Vision Fibre Media joined forces to roll-out a new fibre optic infrastructure in the area.

Formerly the site of Kings College, the Kings Development is a Grade II listed building set in 7.5 acres of walled parkland which was converted into 289 upmarket houses and apartments in 2005.


It’s understood that Keycom, a specialist supplier of high-speed broadband for students, key-workers, housing associations and armed forces accommodation, will manage the service. Meanwhile Vision Fibre Media has the 5-year contract to install the local fibre optic infrastructure and appears to also be offering the end-user packages.

We further note that Vision Fibre Media are also working with The City of London’s Barbican Estate to provide a bespoke state of the art Fibre Optic Network to local homes.

Meri Braziel, Managing Director of Keycom, said:

The Government classifies speeds of 20 Mb/s and above as superfast broadband. The Kings Chelsea development offers speeds of 50 Mb/s, 100 Mb/s and 1 Gb/s.”

John Mills, Managing Director of Vision Fibre Media, added:

Kings Chelsea is one of the most prestigious developments in London and residents can now enjoy the fastest broadband in the UK direct to their properties, enabling them to enjoy value added services such as IPTV and video streaming without buffering or delay.”

According to the website for Vision Fibre Media, prices for the service will start at £25 per month for a 50Mbps package and rise to £70 for 1Gbps. A phone service can also be added from an extra £10 per month and a TV (IPTV) product adds another £10 on top of that.

But at the time of writing VFB’s website is only taking pre-registrations and there are no further details about usage allowances or other package features, nor is it stated whether or not VAT has been factored into the prices.


Last year Keycom also helped to connect a student accommodation building in the city of York (England) to a separate local FTTP/H network run by CityFibre (here).
