very limited it seems, i live in london and not available for me.
Use them. Amazing !! No idea what the bad reviews are all about. As a tech enthusiast I couldn’t be happier with the low latency and pings. It’s very much stable.
True, but not too shabby either! Via Broadband Speed Test
Nice explanation, thank you (party) On using Plex server outside the home, I talked to their support about this and they said that all users use dynamic IP but can be allocated a static IP for an extra £5pm. Not ideal but still a good option if you want access to your media.
Basically consumer networking follows a standard and the standards over the years have gone from 10Mb, to 100Mb, to 1,000Mb (1Gb) and in some expensive newer devices 10,000Mb (10Gb). Your average consumer device right now will have 100Mb or 1,000Mb. No matter what device you use there will always be some overheads the prevent the device actually achieving that full speed. In the same way a race car would travel faster in a vacuum, but that's not the real world. Hyperopic's network (fiber optic to the building) will be capable of ridiculously fast speeds. However since there is no real consumer application for speeds greater than 1Gb the equipment they use in the building distributes 1Gb connections to each resident and they supply a 1Gb router. 10Gb networking is currently quite expensive. In 10 years time when 10Gb networking becomes the more used standard (and cheaper) they could upgrade the equipment in the building but the cable that goes to the building would still have plenty of capacity to cope. In short, Hyperopic offer the fastest speed a consumer can use because it makes no real difference to them. If the customer has a 1Gb package and runs a speed test that maxes out at 950Mb that's because their computer / device is the bottleneck, not the Hyperoptic network.
