Hyperoptic, the UK’s largest residential gigabit broadband provider, today announces that it is now working with 100 UK developers. The list includes Barratt London, Berkeley Homes, Crest Nicholson, Great Portland Estates and Stanhope.
Hyperoptic works with developers to install its fibre infrastructure into existing developments across their portfolio. It has also become standard addition to the initial specifications for new developments, as it offers ‘day one’ connectivity as standard for new developments.
Hyperoptic provides an original specification to developers, followed by a cost neutral installation. It then undertakes maintenance at its own cost going forward.
Chris Gilbert, Managing Director, Berkeley Homes: “Digital infrastructure is now on par with physical. Homebuyers want and expect to have ultrafast broadband connectivity that supports, rather than hinders, their online lives – it’s almost as important to new homebuyers as running water and electricity. Full fibre for new homes is an ongoing commitment for us. Hyperoptic is renowned for its broadband service. We value our relationship with Hyperoptic and the services that it delivers across many developments in our portfolio.”
Increasing the number of developers that Hyperoptic works with is a strategic priority for Hyperoptic. By supplying more developers with its full fibre connectivity, Hyperoptic is expediting the expansion of its network footprint across the UK, which will enable it to achieve its ambition of passing two millions homes by 2022.
David Walker, Head of Property, Hyperoptic: “Our developer relationships have been crucial to our growth. As we have cemented our position as the market leader for full fibre broadband in the UK, we have become renowned for our seamless installation process, successful project handover and customer satisfaction.
“Our full fibre infrastructure meets and exceeds the connectivity requirements of residents – it also provides the foundation for any technology to be incorporated and used within the connected properties. With full fibre, the ‘smart home’ goes from a buzzword to a way of life and the PropTech sector can flourish.”
Hyperoptic’s full fibre approach enables symmetrical gigabit broadband services, which are over 27x faster than the average speed a UK consumer receives today. Hyperoptic is already available to consumers and businesses across 28 cities and towns across the UK. Its client base ranges from premium riverside apartments to former local authority estates. In July 2017 Hyperoptic received £100m in funding to accelerate the build of its full fibre network.
Crest Nicholson: “Buying a home is the biggest investment that most people make, and as such our customers have high expectations of the quality product provided. That includes broadband and currently there is no better provider than Hyperoptic to give our customers the very best connected experience from day one.”
