Gigabit broadband provider Hyperoptic is set to supply around 20,000 Network Homes’ properties with direct fibre broadband. Network Homes’ tenants will have a choice of packages with speeds up to 1Gbps (1,000 megabits per second), which Hyperoptic said is over 21 times faster than the UK average.
The deal with Hyperoptic will cover Network Homes’ portfolio across 36 local authority areas in London, Hertfordshire and the South East of England.
Suraj Shah, head of strategic asset management and planned works, Network Homes, said, “We chose Hyperoptic based on the high-quality service it has offered to us and our tenants. We already had a small number of properties connected to Hyperoptic’s network but based on our experience so far and great feedback from our tenants, this new deal expands this to our entire housing portfolio.”
