Hyperoptic is installing what it says is the fastest broadband in the UK at a development in London.

The broadband provider is deploying its fibre technology at Circus West Village, the first phase of the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station (BPS).

Some 865 homes will be able to receive symmetrical gigabit speeds, which are more than 128 times faster than those available from traditional ADSL services.

David Walker, Head of Property at Hyperoptic, commented: "The BPS project is one of the UK’s most exciting redevelopment and place-making schemes, centred around one of the capital’s most recognisable landmarks. 

"Every detail of the project has been meticulously planned to deliver a new, unrivalled community living experience."

"To be chosen to deliver the connectivity is further recognition of our true fibre approach, which is the benchmark of excellence for the UK broadband industry.”

Mike Varney, Building Services Technical Manager at Battersea Power Station Development Company, added that world-class infrastructure is a key part of the project.

Indeed, he said all its suppliers have been strategically selected to aid this vision and give residents of the new homes access to the very best services on the market.

Mr Varney stressed that while broadband infrastructure might be "invisible", it has a significant impact on people's quality of life.

As a result, he is "delighted" that Hyperoptic has come on board to supply fibre technology to residents.

"Hyperoptic is renowned in the industry for its phenomenal speeds, product range and service delivery," Mr Varney added.

This comes after Ofcom credited Hyperoptic with helping to boost superfast broadband connectivity in the UK over the last year.

According to the watchdog, around eight million homes - or 27 per cent - had average download speeds of 30Mbps or more a year ago. However, the figure now stands at 9.1 million - or 31 per cent.
