broadbandchoices.co.uk, the UK’s leading Ofcom-accredited comparison site for entertainment and communications services, has added 1 gig fibre broadband specialist Hyperoptic to its panel of providers. UK households will now be able to check if they can access this ground-breaking broadband technology by doing a simple postcode search online.
Hyperoptic’s technology can offer customers connection speeds of up to 1Gbps (1000Mbps) - approx. 56 times faster than the current UK average broadband speed (17.8Mbps). Services are currently available to over 150 property developments in London but the rollout is already underway to other cities including Bristol, Cardiff and Reading. Hyperoptic expects to have passed half a million homes by 2018.
Dominic Baliszewski, telecoms expert at broadbandchoices.co.uk commented:
“Hyperoptic is an innovative and dynamic company making huge strides in bringing gigabit speeds to the UK, so we are particularly excited to welcome them our provider panel. Broadband speed is the number one concern for the majority of broadband customers as demand for bandwidth outstrips supply, but Hyperoptic’s unique Fibre-To-The-Building (FTTB) technology offers a future-proofed service which can completely transform the customer’s online experience for the better.”
Dana Tobak, managing director and co-founder of Hyperoptic adds:
“By adding Hyperoptic to the broadbandchoices.co.uk panel, consumers will now be able to compare packages and see that having our unlimited fibre speed doesn’t require a compromise. With consumers now looking for faster download and upload speeds, the demand for Hyperoptic’s symmetrical full fibre broadband is increasing at a phenomenal rate. With the added flexibility of international calling plans and broadband only services, we are also confident that our products offer the best value in the market today."
