ISP Hyperoptic to Connect 4,100 Homes in Barnet to its Full Fibre

Full fibre UK ISP Hyperoptic has today joined CommunityFibre in support of the Barnet Council‘s existing Gigabit Broadband Programme in London, which means that a further 4,100 homes (social housing) will shortly be connected to its network, and they’ll provide over 20 free connections to community centres, and libraries etc.

The council, which acts as a landlord for nearly 14,000 properties in the London Borough, began its programme with support from CommunityFibre earlier this year (here). The aim was to bring gigabit speeds to all properties by the end of 2023. The new agreement with Hyperoptic will help to reach 4,100 of those properties, and the rollout will begin immediately.

At present Hyperoptic’s FTTP / FTTB broadband network already exists in parts of around 43 UK towns and cities, across well over 400,000 premises (old figure), although they’ve previously expressed an ambition to cover 2 million UK premises by the end of 2021 and then 5 million by the end of 2024 (mostly in urban areas), but they seem to now be well behind that target.

Liam McAvoy, Hyperoptic’s MD of Business Development, said:

“We are delighted to join Barnet Council’s Gigabit Broadband Programme. We pride ourselves on being the gold standard of connectivity – genuinely caring about the communities we connect and delivering social value; whilst offering tenants a superior, affordable broadband service that won’t let them down.”

Customers typically pay from around £15 per month (discounted from £25) for an unlimited 50Mbps service on Hyperoptic and this currently goes up to just £35 for 900Mbps+ (usually £60) on a 24-month minimum contract term (discounts applied). A one-off £29 activation fee also applies to some packages, but the fastest tiers are free.

On top of that, they also have a Fair Fibre Plan, which enables customers on specific means-tested benefits to get access to discounted rates. For example, with this plan its 50Mbps broadband-only service on a monthly rolling contract is available at just £15 a month. Faster Fair Fibre packages are also available, albeit at a higher price.

    On a side note Hyperoptic have low premises numbers considering that they’ve existed since 2010.

    Why mention social housing? is home is home.

      I assume it’s because it’s easier to roll out to social housing (eg owned by councils etc) as you don’t have the landlord being a blocker like you would in privately-owned developments.
