Hyperoptic broadband with Get Living London boosts East Village into the future

East Village has established itself as one of the UK’s best connected neighbourhoods with access to some of the most advanced broadband connectivity in the country.

According to the latest report by the FTTH Council Europe, less than 1% of the UK has access to Fibre-to-the-Home broadband, which means the UK fails to feature on global rankings. However, amongst the lucky 1% are more than 1,500 residents renting with Get Living London at East Village for whom high-speed internet connectivity comes as standard.

All Get Living London residents receive free 20Mbps fibre broadband service for the duration of the tenancy, together with free local and national phone calls during evenings and weekends for the duration of their tenancy. Those residents with an even greater need for speed can easily upgrade to Hyperoptic’s pioneering hyperfast broadband services at either 100Mb per second or 1Gb per second. This connection costs just £10 or £20 a month respectively, on a 30-day rolling contract.

All of Hyperoptic’s broadband services can be activated free of charge at Olympic-speed, in as little as 15 minutes, ensuring residents can enjoy super-fast broadband as soon as they move in.

East Village is one of a handful of developments that can boast hyper-fast connectivity from Hyperoptic. Others include the Beetham Tower in Manchester, Hayes Apartments in Cardiff and the Robinson Building in Bristol. Through these industry-leading developments, the broadband market in the UK is finally getting up to speed and catching up with other high-tech nations around the world. True fibre connectivity is becoming more widely available to consumers thanks to services like Hyperoptic, the UK’s leading Fibre-to-the-Home provider.

Neil Young, chief executive of Get Living London, commented ‘For too long renting with easy access to high-speed broadband seemed the impossible dream but for our tech-savvy residents in East Village it’s an absolute necessity. Our free Hyperoptic broadband offer for all homes we rent recognises that high speed broadband is no longer merely a ‘nice to have’ but essential to a modern home.’
