More residential Gigabit connectivity in London

If you can afford a 2 bedroom apartment in the prestigious Kings Chelsea development where Rightmove recently listed a 2 bedroom flat for £1.6m then you probably want the best broadband that money can buy, and with a partnership between Keycom and Vision Fibre Media that is now possible as they are installing Gigabit broadband to properties in the development.

Kings Chelsea is formerly the site of Kings College and is a Grade II listed building set in 7.5 acres. While property prices look to be high, Vision Fibre Media has relatively down to earth pricing with up to 50 Mbps costing £25, 100 Mbps £35 and the full Gigabit for £70.

The development is some 289 premises which means Hyperoptic is still the largest residential Gigabit provider in the capital by a large margin, but competition is good and who knows we might eventually reach the more humdrum tower blocks and apartment complexes as landlords realise that good broadband is high on many peoples check lists.


Being slightly older I find that landlords and estate agents are shosked at the enquiry about broadband.

Retirement accomodation still lists telephones as if they are an added extra.

The thought of getting a 'management committee' to accept cabling, let alone getting one of the ISPs to connect us is more than we can face.
