Milton Keynes Council is using Hyperoptic to deliver ‘hyperfast’ broadband to over 4,500 properties in its social housing portfolio.
Hyperoptic installs fibre directly into a property (fibre to the home), enabling symmetric broadband speeds of 1,000Mbps, which the company says is over 18 times faster than the national average.
Nigel Long, councillor for housing and regeneration, Milton Keynes Council, said, “This new partnership with Hyperoptic will open the doors for our residents to thrive. It will improve access to training and give people the means to apply for jobs and so much more.”
David Walker, head of property, Hyperoptic, said, “The issues that typically compound digital exclusion are the provision and quality of broadband services. Having access to a connection over full fibre gives social housing residents the best possible internet experience so that they can take advantage of everything that the internet has to offer.”
