Bellway South London is offering ‘smart homes’ to buyers via a new hyperfast broadband partnership, it has been revealed.
The developer will be providing day one access to gigabit broadband speeds across its new housing developments. This will enable its future residents to get the best smart home experience.
It is partnering with Hyperoptic, the UK’s leading residential gigabit provider.
Hyperoptic’s full fibre approach enables symmetrical gigabit broadband services – 1,000Mbps – which is over 27x faster than the average speed a UK consumer receives today. With these speeds, HD movies can be downloaded in seconds and families can simultaneously access the Internet, without any frustrating slow downs, buffering or timeouts.
Residents will be able to access services the day they move in and enjoy the digital broadband service free for the first three months at Solomon’s Seal in Broadbridge Heath, Trinity Quarter in Guildford, Ikon in Croydon, Walton Park in Walton on Thames and Little Meadow in Cranleigh
Connectivity is now one of the key factors that inform whether a homebuyer purchases a property. In a survey of 2,000 UK adults by OnePoll, for Broadband Genie, 49 per cent of the respondents said they wouldn’t purchase a property without access to fast internet access.
Nicky Chapman, Sales Director for Bellway’s South London division, said, “We appreciate how important it is for buyers that they have a fast connection, and that’s why we’re making sure it’s available for our new residents.”
