GTC Bring FTTH Broadband to New Homes in London and High Wycombe

Utility infrastructure provider GTC has announced that their 300Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) broadband network is being deployed across two new build developments in London and High Wycombe, which should benefit 445 homes.

The new contracts are with Lendlease, for a development of 333 homes at Glasshouse Gardens in Stratford (London), and with Taylor Wimpey for 112 homes at RAF Daws Hill (High Wycombe).

As with prior developments the new homes will also benefit from GTC’s deal with Sky (Sky Broadband), which means that new homes will benefit from premium TV services that can be delivered via a Fibre Integrated Reception System (FIRS). New residents will also get Sky’s Original Bundle as part of a moving-in package, free for 12 months.

The FIRS system delivers TV services via GTC’s fibre optic cables and thus only needs to utilise a single central satellite receiver and aerial array to serve the whole site, which is much better than putting a dish on every roof that wants one.

Jonathan Miller, Technical Director of Taylor Wimpey, said:

“All the houses on our development have the same high speed, reliable fibre connection. Homeowners know that the fibre technology is future-proofed, in that fibre-to-the-home offers virtually limitless speeds. As the homeowners’ online needs increase, be it for work or pleasure, the fibre network will provide equally ultra-fast speed and reliability for both uploads and downloads, as well as enabling everyone in the house to enjoy the same levels of service at the same time. This is a key differentiator between our homes and others in the area.”

Misan Akporiaye, Development Manager from Lendlease, said:

“The latest figures from Ofcom show that the average broadband speed is currently around 23Mbps. GTC is offering our customers 300Mbps, as standard. With ever increasing customer demand for reliable broadband, this is not something we can afford to ignore.”

GTC currently works with all of the top three house builders (Barratt Homes, Persimmon Homes and Taylor Wimpey) and the majority of the top ten (e.g. Bovis Homes, Bellway Homes and J S Bloor). The company says that it has fibre networks that “expand from Inverness to Exeter, including in the ultra-fast capital of London“, although they also install water, gas and electricity services.
