Hyperoptic is continuing to extend the reach of its fibre-to-the-premises broadband network, as it targets coverage of half a million homes by 2018.

New residential developments in Newcastle, Sheffield, Birmingham and Nottingham have become the latest areas to gain full-fibre broadband.

Hyperoptic says it will soon reach 75,000 properties across 480 networked locations, with deployment work continuing apace in cities across the UK.

The firm is set to launch 1Gb broadband networks in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Reading in the coming months. It already operates in London, Cardiff, Glasgow and Bristol.

According to Hyperoptic, the "rapid increase" in coverage is due to a "huge rise" in demand among consumers.

It claims the growth of the Hyperoptic network has been further accelerated by a group of hyper-champions - forward-thinking residents who campaign for 1Gb speeds within their housing development.

Dana Tobak, Managing Director at Hyperoptic, said the company's mission is to provide a true fibre infrastructure, which empowers residents to future-proof their online lives.

"In today's age, broadband should be an enabler, not a hindrance," she claimed.

"A fast, consistent, dependable fibre connection is now essential for entertainment, socialising and work."

Ms Tobak said the symmetrical gigabit speeds offered by Hyperoptic ensure subscribers can enjoy "the best of what the internet has to offer".

She added that consumer reception to the firm's 1Gb broadband products has been "phenomenal", and as such, the firm remains committed to expanding its footprint and availability across the UK.

Communications Minister Ed Vaizey said the government is fully aware of the "tremendous contribution" that companies such as Hyperoptic make to the UK's internet industry.

He claimed that cutting-edge technology - such as full-fibre broadband - is "the foundation for growth and innovation" in Britain.
