Pure fibre optic ISP Hyperoptic has announced that the first five apartment blocks to receive their symmetric 1000Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Building (FTTB) network in the city of Liverpool have now gone live and a further 16 developments are also undergoing installation work.

The first developments (Multi Dwelling Units) include Hamilton House, Waterloo Warehouse, The Reach and X Building; and these will soon be followed by Wapping Quay, Kings Dock Mill, Princes Dock and City Quay.

Hyperoptic, which has already made its service available to 100,000 premises (mostly in London), currently focuses on bringing their service to developments with 50 or more units and where at least 10% of residents have expressed an interest.

The ISP is also deploying their service into new areas across London, Cardiff, Bristol, Reading, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield, Birmingham, Glasgow, Newcastle and Nottingham.

Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, said:

This is tremendous news. Hyperoptic’s offer helps transform us into a truly ‘Gig City’ and gives Liverpool a massive competitive edge. We want to grow the scale and breadth of businesses in the digital sector and improving broadband speeds is essential in allowing that to happen. It’s also the foundation for successful home-working and enabling the people of Liverpool to enjoy the best of what true fibre speeds have to offer.

When we think of key utilities like water, gas and electricity we should also now think of superfast broadband. It’s an essential building-block in growing businesses and attracting new investment into the city as well as improving and future proofing the online lives of all.”

Prices start as low as £4 a month for the first 6 months (when taken with line rental at £16 per month) and broadband-only services are also available if don’t need a phone service and wish to save a few pounds off the bundle price (more price details).
