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.
