The Hyperoptic footprint is growing and Greater Manchester is the latest area to see its gigabit network go live. Sovereign Point and Imperial Point (Salford Quays) are now live with residents able to place orders for the up to 1 Gbps service.
"Manchester and Salford have long been on the map for their creative digital scene, but dire broadband speeds available to many have slowed progress.
Thanks in part to our campaign to raise awareness of this problem, thousands of residents are now able to gain access to the fastest available internet speeds through Hyperoptic's industry-leading service.
We will continue to work with providers like Hyperoptic, property developers, building managers and residents themselves to rollout out genuine hyper-fast fibre optic broadband to as many residents as possible to bring Manchester and the wider city region up to speed with the broadband it deserves.Manchester city councillor, Kevin Peel
"This area is constantly developing and there is an obligation to offer residents real technological advances to match their lifestyle demands.
The new hyper-fast connectivity is already making a practical difference to users’ online lives and adding to the value of the property for residents and owners alike."Simon Wilson from The Emerson Group
The Emerson Group who manage the buildings seem to be one business who have got the message that good broadband is a key requirement for many people, we wish lots more developers would understand the issue, all too often we still see people moving into a new house and finding out far too late it will have poor broadband and with buyers falsely assuming that a new build property would have the latest and greatest broadband made available automatically.
