City focused fibre optic UK ISP Hyperoptic, which claims to be the United Kingdom’s largest residential provider of Gigabit broadband connections (FTTP/B), have carried out a trial of the “fastest home broadband the country has ever seen” by testing a 10Gbps service at East Village (the London 2012 Athletes’ Village).

Quote
We should point out that the trial was measured via a speedtest server located in Hyperoptic’s own Data Centre, which used the latest 10Gbps network capable router with the LAN host and server being based on Intel technology, which allows network speeds up to 10Gb or more. The test environment will be in place for 4 weeks.

It is good that Hyperoptic are doing these trials. But I wish they would come out of the new builds and start expanding. I also don't know why some of these ISP's dont start building in the Midlands or the North were costs should be cheaper, at least by London prices, to lay out networks.

As the son of the BE isp that did a lot for the end user, and being one of their customers, I look on Hyperoptic with some sentimental hope.

Hyperoptic are building in the Midlands and the North and most of the buildings they enable are not new builds?
