Thousands of residents living in social housing within Hillingdon are to receive full-fibre broadband following a new deal between Hillingdon Council and UK gigabit broadband ISP Hyperoptic, it has been announced.
Around 11,000 homes across Hillingdon will benefit from the new deal. Hyperoptic hopes to cover two million UK homes by the end of 2023, the company said.
James Prowse, Hyperoptic’s regional manager for Social Housing, said: “Fast and reliable broadband has never been more important. It’s a utility that everyone needs to effectively work, learn and socialise from home.
“We are committed to bringing an end to digital poverty and giving everyone the opportunity to benefit from the ‘full fibre’ difference.
“Councils have a really important role to play in enabling us to realise this vision and we thank Hillingdon Council for making this rollout possible.”
