Hyperoptic Confirms Expansion of 1Gbps FTTH Broadband to Glasgow

Friday, September 19th, 2014 (12:12 pm) - Score 1,827

Fibre optic ISP Hyperoptic has confirmed that the next UK city to benefit from access to their 1000Mbps (Megabits per second) capable home and business Fibre-To-The-Building (FTTB/H/P) network will be none other than Glasgow in Scotland.

So far Hyperoptic has confirmed that their Gigabit FTTB network, which tends to focus on connecting large urban residential apartment blocks and businesses, is being rolled out to parts of London, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Bristol, Cardiff and Reading. Most of this is being funded by a £50 million investment from Quantum Strategic Partners (here).

But in a brief comment today the ISPs boss confirmed that, in light of the referendum result that saw Scotland vote to stay part of the United Kingdom, Hyperoptic’s next city will be none other than Glasgow.

Dana Tobak, MD of Hyperoptic, said:

Hyperoptic welcomes the result of the Scottish referendum. Over the last year, Hyperoptic has been rapidly expanding the footprint of its gigabit broadband to seven UK cities.

Now that Scotland has confirmed that it will be staying within the UK, it is the perfect time to announce that Glasgow will be the next hyper-city. We look forward to bringing gigabit broadband, the fastest consumer broadband speeds in the UK, to Scotland.”

At the time of writing no further details have been provided.

    If this is mostly aimed at high rises they will be in for a shock as it’s only drug addicts and unemployed that live in them in Glasgow
