Hyde Group Housing Association and Hyperoptic Rollout 1Gbps Broadband

Fibre optic ISP Hyperoptic has joined forces with the Hyde Group, which is a United Kingdom focused Housing Association with 50,000 homes under its banner, in order to roll-out their ultrafast 1000Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network to related residents.

Apparently the first areas to benefit from this new agreement will be 6 of Hyde Housing’s existing developments in South London, such as Eyot House, Hicks House and The Parker Building in Bermondsey and Pinter, Arden and Beckett House in Stockwell. A couple of new build sites in Southwark and Harrow can also expect to get the new connectivity.

Shaun Holdcroft, Regional Director of The Hyde Group, said:

“We were looking for a partner who could do two things. Firstly they had to offer something to help our offline social tenants to get on-line, our latest figures show offline rates amongst our tenants are 23% compared to 14% in the rest of the UK.

Secondly they had to have experience in providing their services in new build developments as hyper-fast reliable broadband is increasingly expected by our new customers. Hyperoptic met these objectives fully and we are delighted to be the first housing association to work out a deal to provide fibre to our residents that benefits all our customers.”

Dana Tobak, MD of Hyperoptic, added:

“Hyperoptic is renowned for setting the gold standard in fibre broadband. We passionately believe that reliable, fast broadband access should be the norm, not the exception. We are working hard to increase our UK footprint so even more people can enjoy living their online lives without compromise and bridge the digital divide.”

The press release doesn’t specifically confirm that all of Hyde Housing’s developments will get the new connectivity, but it does say that that the pilot areas will be live by September 2016 and the “agreement allows for further Hyde blocks, both existing and new build, to be connected once the pilot has been completed.”

As usual residents will be offered Hyperoptic’s array of affordable 20Mbps, 100Mbps and 1000Mbps broadband packages, which can be taken with or without a phone service (all of these can be ordered on a contract-free basis and without any need for credit checks). The Hyde Group’s social housing tenants in affected blocks will also be able to access a 2Mbps service from Hyperoptic.

The vast majority of Hyde’s related developments are in England, with a strong focus on the regions of London, Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire, the East of England and East Midlands.
