Glasgow to get the Gigabit treatment from Hyperoptic

Following hot on the heels of the first live connections in Cardiff Hyperoptic has announced Glasgow as the next city it will be building its Gigabit network.

"Hyperoptic welcomes the result of the Scottish referendum. Over the last year, Hyperoptic has been rapidly expanding the footprint of its gigabit broadband to seven UK cities.

Now that Scotland has confirmed that it will be staying within the UK, it is the perfect time to announce that Glasgow will be the next hyper-city. We look forward to bringing gigabit broadband, the fastest consumer broadband speeds in the UK, to Scotland.

Dana Tobak, Managing Director of Hyperoptic

Now the decision to go to Glasgow has been taken the task of negotiating with landlords and developers will begin and assessing the levels of demand from properties across the city to decide who will be first of hopefully many buildings with 1000 Mbps broadband access.


Great news for Glasgow! This is the future. Not the silly FTTC cabinets that are chokepoints for anything on the horizon.

Well, it is the future for specially selected upmarket apartments situated in multiple dwelling units in cities who will get this FTTB provided for them.
As for the rest...............

"specially selected upmarket apartments situated in multiple dwelling units" This isn't always the case. I live on a late 80s development of 75 low rise flats and houses in London SW9, hardly upmarket, but ignored by BT due to all our lines being EO. We approached Hyperoptic and they have expressed considerable interest in helping us.

There is no need for partisan confrontational type comments.
