More than 10,000 London households are now able to access Hyperoptic's 1Gb broadband network, it has been reported.

The urban-focused broadband provider is making the fibre service available at 30 property developments across 12 boroughs in the capital.

Areas of Barnet, Croydon, Greenwich, Hammersmith and Fulham, Hounslow, Kensington and Chelsea, Lambeth, Newham, Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Wandsworth and Westminster are currently connected to the 1Gb network.

Hyperoptic is planning to extend its reach over the coming five years, increasing the number of people who can take advantage of its rapid download and upload speeds.

Boris Ivanovic, Founder and Chairman of Hyperoptic, said there is a "clear need for speed" in the UK.

"It's widely understood that the UK is one of the biggest users of technology, with the internet contributing more to its economy than any other country in the world, accounting for nearly 8.3 per cent of gross domestic product," he stated.

"Having the infrastructure to support this growth is paramount, although previously the focus has only been on hitting coverage - meaning the UK doesn't make the top 15 countries for broadband speeds."

Mr Ivanovic welcomed the government's recognition that broadband speeds are vitally important, and said his firm is delighted to be setting a positive example for the rest of the industry.
