As usual with Hyperoptic, this is only available in select buildings. I saw the flyer in the building. They're doing 1Gb bandwidth for £10 per month, after which it goes to £63 per month. Only valid until 31/01/2018.

Edit: 12 months in a year is £120

This is the download speed .... not the usage limit.

Tiptop spot for the promo price if your in the area for the year, but the £63 after is madness, if only HO would settle on some run of the mill prices for this service, they would get a lot more retention business after the 3, 6 & 12 month offers in the marketplace!
£10p/m x 12 = £120?

Streaming UHD videos, multiple people streaming and gaming at the same time, that sort of thing. Typically with their provider router, you'll never see that speed over wifi anyway.

The price is the biggest value of the deal here.

You and OP are mixing up GBs with Gbps.

1GB is a 30 min blue movie whereas 1Gbps means that movie would download in seconds.

"1GB" is the connection speed which looks like a full 1Gbps/1Gbps synchronous service which for £10 is ridiculously cheap if you can get it.

Its 1000mb
You may have 1gb speed, but does the other side allow max through put? Hardly ever. I got 40mb speed but hardly ever big name site allow that kinda down speeds
good price, shame its not available in my area.

You don't find that you only ever seem to get 5MB by any chance?
Great - if you can get it!

Last time I checked it wasn't where I live, although the website doesn't seem to want to let me check today ha
The £63 seems like a lot after 12 months but if that includes line rental too then it isn't a massive difference from Sky BT etc - wish they would find a way of getting rid of the landline requirement for having broadband, I can't remember the last time I used the phone.

Working ok for residential & business checks, maybe the influx from hukd visits has caught them dipping their digestives in their tea!

Give them a quick call on the updated backhauls they are working on, a lot of the seed cities/towns they are in, start with a new developers building/estate, which they put live, then they move out to the area around it.

Been posted so many times. THEY HARDLY COVER ANY AREAS.
Thank you so much OP! Just renewed my contract. Making a big saving at £10/month!
Good deal, if it is available in your area. It is mainly for blocks of flats. Also after initial 12 month rather steep increase in price to my liking. The bottleneck for downloads at such speed will be HDD, unless you have SSD drives inside your systems. It is still well above average consumer speed requirements. Just nostalgic recalling AOL days...
Oh hot damn, I'm already using them but am on their previous deal price of £47/month for 1gbit/s. Gonna give them a ring and see if I can get this deal (I shouldn't be able to, but they've done it before for me).

*edit* code is exclusively for new builds

Wow someone that actually gets it. Typically the speedtest.net test will give full speeds but no service server is going to give you those download rates. Doesn't mean you aren't getting what you paid for. Best example i can get is PSN download speeds are like 10Mbps at best but most people will blame the service provider.

Along similar lines try explain to someone that even if they only get 25Mbps if not less over WiFi their cat videos on YouTube are still gonna come through just as fast as if they had the full 80Mbps. It's usually the computer/browser that's causing the minor milliseconds of delays.

Working again now - but as I suspected, not in my area - thanks anyway

Good! Just my daily porn is over 1gb per day!

This is a 1Gbps internet connection. 1000Mbps. Most home internet connections are ‘up to 76Mbps’. 76. That’s approximately 8% of the bandwidth. At best. People like you are the reason that The UK’s connectivity is in the state that it is. Expecting top speed for next to no money. If people were actually prepared to pay for the internet connections they expect maybe we wouldn’t be so far down the developed worlds performance table. I bet you’re the first to complain when your £2.50 TalkTalk internet connection goes down.

Interesting that you talk about 10Mbps and 80Mbps (sic). If you're on 80Mb broadband 10MB downloads would be capping out as there are 8 bits in a byte. If you understand the difference between Mb and MB then fair enough, but you should also know to expect to make full use of your bandwidth and that milliseconds are not related to bandwidth.

Steam will. I've seen 115MB/s (being careful with capitalisation) down from steam.

Really good service. Amazing internet. If you get referred by someone with hyperoptic you both will get £50 credit.

Most spinning disks can easily do 125MB/s (aka gigabit) the problem is going to be who will let you download at that speed. Torrents / Streaming sites / Speed test sites will probably do it. Unlikely to happen on pure HTTP website. When I was lucky enough to have it, very few places could upload to me at gigabit speed.
Edited by: "deleted1545998" 29th Jan
TBH not many people will be able to utilise speeds like this, unless you are downloading from multiple sources simultaneously. A family or groups of people would benefit a lot more from this.
great just signed up!
Abit silly when it’s hardly available anywhere

Let me guess, Virgin media customer eh?
I wish I could get these speeds but I live in a house so only get 35mb from bt. That being said for anyone actually taking this deal out the biggest difference you would notice is likes of downloading games and movies plus things like youtube and other uploads loading much faster. Of course there will be a point where you will be maxing out the speed the data can physically be sent to you as opposed to the speed you can download it, but for £10 a month no other ISP on the planet will come close to these speeds.
We need more independent ISP s.
is there a way to check where this is ACTUALLY available now? im curious as to the areas they have covered
Us folks in Milton Keynes are going to be offered 1Gb (to the whole town apparently). I don't know when starts though. We can only express interest so far.

I just talk in Mbps terms as thats what "normal" people see speeds being advertised and has become the norm, exactly like here where Mbps is not being used its confused people. I prefer file size download rate like you mention MB/s.

The milliseconds (or seconds) of delays in their browser im just referring to when I have customers who say their internet is slow on their 80Mbps line, when its just their rubbish computer. I've had a situation when im being shown how slow pages are loading on a netbook on their 80Mbps line!

Not complaining really, I enjoy it.
Looks like it's only in London??
The people behind Hyperoptic were the same as the old BEUnlimited before they were purchased by Sky. I would jump at this deal if they served my area.

Win win as I see it.
Is this basically London only?
Hot! This is available in the flat I’m moving into later this week, guess that’s Sky ditched. (Leeds btw, so not just London). More than overkill for what my uses are, but unbeatable price.
