Hyperoptic ensures powerful broadband available at Battersea Power Station development

Apartments that are part of the 895 units being built as part of the Circus West Village look set to enjoy symmetric Gigabit broadband from Hyperoptic and it will be available from the day they move in. Circus West Village is the first phase of the Battersea Power Station development that anyone who has endured the commute into London Victoria cannot fail to have noticed.

"World-class infrastructure is at the heart of our award-winning project. All of our suppliers have been strategically selected to support this vision and give our vibrant new BPS community the best services in the market. Broadband infrastructure may be invisible, but its impact on our resident’s quality of life is significant. Hyperoptic is renowned in the industry for its phenomenal speeds, product range and service delivery. On behalf of our Malaysian shareholders, we are thrilled to have Hyperoptic on board as a supplier."

Mike Varney, Building Services Technical Manager, Battersea Power Station Development Company

This is just the start, as the development should eventually comprise some 4,364 new homes, people should start moving into the Circus West Village in early 2017 and commercial tenants from Spring 2017 onwards.

Prices from £420k, which gets you a piddly studio flat. £636k for a 1 bedroom flat LOL. I know its London but at those prices I'd be expecting a gold plated, 1gb/s up & down private leased line (1:1 contention) thrown in for free.

So property developer puts their hand in a pocket and throws some loose change at a telecoms provider. Hardly groundbreaking news although at least developer didn't cheap out.

Actually chances are the developer paid nothing. In these instances the telecomms providers pay developers, not the other way around.

Will they also provide a 895Gb link from the apartments to their network?

Of course not, because most will take the 20 or 100 packages. If anything.

A single 10Gb will be more than adequate, Nick_taken.
