Hyperoptic Doubles UK Footprint in Six Months

  • Hyperoptic
LONDON — Hyperoptic, a UK-based full-fiber service provider, will soon reach more than 75,000 homes spanning 480 sites, with a target of half a million homes by 2018. This rapid increase is largely due to a huge rise in demand from Brits, who have taken control over their need for speed at home and registered their interestvia the Hyperoptic website. The growth of Hyperoptic has been further accelerated by an ever-increasing group of hyper-champions, residents who campaign for gigabit speeds within their development.

Gigabit Footprint Covers London
In London, Hyperoptic's gigabit footprint now extends across the length and breadth of the city; from central riverside apartments, all the way to the developments situated near the M25. The service is also live in Cardiff and Bristol, and installations are underway in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Reading.

The latest cities are Newcastle, Sheffield, Birmingham and Nottingham – which join the recently announced hyper-city, Glasgow. All cities were chosen by demand and number of residential developments.

"Our mission is to provide a true fiber infrastructure, which empowers residents to future-proof their online lives," Dana Tobak, managing director, Hyperoptic. In today's age, broadband should be an enabler, not a hindrance. A fast, consistent, dependable fiber connection is now essential for entertainment, socializing and work.

Symmetrical Gigabit Speeds

"With symmetrical gigabit speeds, you can be guaranteed that you can enjoy the best of what the Internet has to offer. As a result, the reception to our products and services has been phenomenal. We remain committed to expand our footprint and availability across the UK."

Communications Minister Ed Vaizey adds, "Government is fully aware of the tremendous contribution that companies such as Hyperoptic are making to the UK's Internet industry. Cutting-edge technology is the foundation for growth and innovation and today's announcement is fantastic news for Newcastle, Sheffield, Birmingham and Nottingham."

Hyperoptic works in partnership with developers and building management companies, to install its true fiber infrastructure directly into their buildings. Partnerships are in place with forward-thinking property developers, including Barratt London, St George and Regis Group plc, which is fueling the rapid expansion of Hyperoptic's footprint across the UK.

Innovation has been a key contributor to the success of the business to date. When it first launched services, Hyperoptic targeted developments with 80 units or more. Today Hyperoptic is able to install services to developments as small as 50 units, making gigabit speeds a reality to many more residents.
