Fibre-to-the-building specialist Hyperoptic has launched a new range of services designed to improve connectivity for businesses across urban Britain.
Companies based in Greater London, Cardiff, Bristol, Reading, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield, Birmingham, Glasgow, Newcastle and Nottingham will be able to take advantage of 1Gb business broadband, leased lines and shared leased lines.
Hyperoptic installs fibre directly into premises, meaning it eliminates the copper phone "weak link" which slows down connectivity speeds for many UK firms.
In terms of business broadband, the firm has introduced three new packages - designed for small and medium-sized enterprises based in multi-occupied commercial buildings, business parks and residential premises.
Subscribers will be able to choose between 20Mb, 100Mb and 1Gb broadband deals, each of which comes with unlimited data and no traffic management.
Hyperoptic offers its services on standard 12-month contracts, meaning companies only have to commit to the service provider for one year.
Darren Shenkin, Director of Business Development at Hyperoptic, commented that internet downtime costs businesses money in terms of lost sales and staff productivity.
"The beauty of our true fibre approach is that we can offer businesses a service that they can truly depend on, and use to grow their company," he stated.
"We are enabling innovation - businesses are earning £1 in every £5 from the internet."
Mr Shenkin added that broadband is part of the business foundation; "the infrastructure that bridges bricks and clicks".
In February 2015, Hyperoptic announced that its fibre-to-the-building connectivity services were available to 100,000 individual residential and business units, across 1,000 sites.
The company focuses on bringing full-fibre services to developments with 50 or more units, where at least ten per cent of residents have registered interest.
