Community Fibre, a social housing-specific broadband provider, has announced an upgrade of its full-fibre packages available to housing providers, primarily in London.
The new packages range from 1Gb/s (£50/month) to 50Mb/s (£20/month), which the company says are the most affordable and competitive rates in London.
Graeme Oxby, CEO, Community Fibre, said, “Broadband has become an essential utility and should be at the forefront of efforts to promote social progress and decent housing. We are breaking the mould with these packages to ensure that everyone can achieve the speed and connectivity they need at affordable prices. Moreover, our contracts are always straightforward, consistent and don’t contain any hidden surprises.”
Kim Caddy, member for housing and regeneration, Wandsworth Council, said, “Wandsworth has been leading the way in supporting the government’s full-fibre rollout ambitions through our partnership with Community Fibre. Its full-fibre network is now available to most of our social housing tenants.”
Peter Butler, business development manager, Origin Housing, said, “The importance of affordable and reliable broadband for social housing tenants is still underappreciated. Community Fibre’s offering of ultrafast internet speeds at a competitive price should serve as an example that broadband can be affordable for all tenants.”
