Nottingham Council residents to enjoy Hyperoptic broadband

Nottingham Council residents will soon have access to the fastest broadband service in the UK after Nottingham City Homes, which manages the homes on behalf of Nottingham Council, agreed a supply deal with fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) provider, Hyperoptic.

Because Hyperoptic installs its fibre all the way into the building it can enable symmetrical gigabit speeds (1,000Meg), which is over 128 times faster than ADSL. Installation is currently underway and thousands of Nottingham Council’s residents are expected to be online with gigabit connectivity within the month.

Customers can opt for a ‘broadband only’ product, broadband and landline bundles and a ‘no contract’ service, which just requires 30 days notice, with no minimum term.

Councillor Nick McDonald, Portfolio Holder for Jobs, Growth and Transport, said: “We are delighted to see new Internet service providers entering the Nottingham market and that they are making a significant and positive impact on the lives of Nottingham City Homes tenants.

“Access to fast and reliable broadband is one of the foundations needed to encourage more business growth in the city and we’re ambitious about providing it for local businesses.”
