Full fibre UK ISP Hyperoptic has announced that they’re donating IT equipment and dongles in Edinburgh (Scotland) to help enable 17 low-income households in the port district of Leith to get online and access essential services.

The donation is being handled through the Edinburgh Remakery, which is a social enterprise committed to diverting waste from landfill and reusing old equipment (i.e. during 2019 it diverted 33 tonnes from landfill and educated over 2,000 people in repair and re-use skills), and they are in turn supported by Carr Gomm, a Scottish social care and community development charity.

As well as donating equipment, Hyperoptic has also connected the Edinburgh Remakery to its 1Gbps capable “hyperfast” broadband (FTTP/B) network.

John McCabe, Hyperoptic’s Head of Business Development – National, said:

“Edinburgh is a key city for Hyperoptic, which is why we are thrilled to be supporting vulnerable members of the community with the gift of connectivity. Access to fast and reliable broadband has the power to revolutionise lives. We are also very pleased to add the Edinburgh Remakery to our full fibre network so that they can take advantage of everything unfettered internet access has to offer.”
