Select housing developments in London are due to get free broadband services thanks to Hyperoptic.

The ultrafast broadband provider announced that it would be offering services to six housing developments in South London for free. 

Buildings in Bermondsey and Stockwell as well as new sites in Southwark and Harrow will be connected to the service.

Users of the free service will be able to access 2Mbps if they stick to the basic package, but residents can also pay for much improved gigabit speeds of up to 100, 200 and 1000Mbps. 

Managing Director of Hyperoptic, Dana Tobak, claimed that the provider was leading the way for fibre broadband in the UK. 

“Hyperoptic is renowned for setting the gold standard in fibre broadband. We passionately believe that reliable, fast broadband access should be the norm, not the exception.”

“We are working hard to increase our UK footprint so even more people can enjoy living their online lives without compromise and bridge the digital divide.”

The rollout to the properties is expected to be completed by September of this year. 

Certain properties are also set to be offered Sky TV free for a year when they move in.

The move from Hyperoptic comes as many living in London have registered complaints about broadband issues in certain areas, with many not able to receive the government standard 10Mbps.
