Hyperoptic Deploy FTTP to Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing

UK ISP Hyperoptic, which specialises in building 1Gbps capable “full fibre” (FTTP/B) broadband networks to large residential (MDU) and office buildings, has today announced a new partnership with Metropolitan Thames Valley (MTV) to rollout their “hyperfast” service across a “large proportion of its housing portfolio.”

At present MTV is said to provide housing at different levels of affordability for people living in London, the South East, East Midlands and the East of England. The organisation, which is also a member of the National Housing Federation (NHF) and the g15, was formed from the merger of the Metropolitan Housing Trust and Thames Valley Housing Association in 2018.

NOTE: MTV’s annual report for 2020 states that they own, manage and administer more than 57,000 homes.

Sadly, Hyperoptic’s announcement doesn’t say precisely how many premises will benefit from today’s agreement, although they intend to start work with the Ashmole Estate in Oval and the Chalkhill Estate in the borough of Brent. We should add that the ISP has previously deployed its network to cover MTV’s Clapham Park regeneration in 2019, so this isn’t strictly their first deployment with MTV.

Liam McAvoy, Hyperoptic’s Senior Director of Business Development, said:

“The social housing sector is a strategic priority for Hyperoptic. We have been focused on bridging the digital divide from our inception, by working hand-in-glove with social landlords to enable their resident’s benefit from the gold-standard of connectivity. Our full fibre broadband brings a host of social and economic benefits to a community, and we are pleased to go beyond the infrastructure provision by offering complimentary connections and digital training.”

Sarah Willis, MTV’s Head of Strategic Partnership and National Delivery, added:

“Connectivity has never been more essential to society than right now and with that in mind we are pleased to be partnering with Hyperoptic. After a positive start in Clapham Park in 2019 we looking forward to providing a successful and effective service to more of our residents on the Ashmole Estate in the Oval and Chalkhill Estate in Brent.

At Metropolitan Thames Valley, we are always working to explore how we can provide our residents with a reliable and affordable full fibre broadband provider which allows them to connect with family and friends, access employment and training and so many of the services they rely on.”

Hyperoptic’s network is currently present in parts of 43 UK towns and cities across well over 400,000 premises, although they have previously expressed an ambition to cover 2 million UK premises by the end of 2021, followed by 5 million come the end of 2024 (mostly in urban areas).

Customers typically pay from around £22 per month for a 50Mbps service and this goes up to £40 for 1Gbps (symmetric speed) on a 12-month minimum contract term (discounts applied), although some of their other deployments have also included a free connectivity option for residents and visitors (e.g. community WiFi).
