Laid in Chelsea: Gigabit fibre broadband comes to exclusive development

Residents of upmarket Chelsea development Kings Chelsea have got it made, as they’ll soon be able to access gigabit fibre broadband. 

Keycom and Vision Fibre Media have teamed up to deliver next-gen fibre broadband to the exclusive development, which will let customers tap into speeds head and shoulders above those enjoyed by most UK homes. 

Meri Braziel managing director of Keycom said: “The Government classifies speeds of 20Mbps and above as superfast broadband. The Kings Chelsea development offers speeds of 50Mbps, 100Mbps and 1Gbps.”

Keycom will manage the service in the exclusive Kings development while Vision Fibre Media has a five-year contract to install fibre broadband there. Vision Fibre Media customers allow customers will be able to download a full HD movie in mere seconds. 

John Mills, managing director at Vision Fibre Media, commented: “Kings Chelsea is one of the most prestigious developments in London and residents can now enjoy the fastest broadband in the UK direct to their properties, enabling them to enjoy value added services such as IPTV and video streaming without buffering or delay.” 

Keycom and Vision Fibre Media are the latest companies to install gigabit broadband in Chelsea. London-based fibre ISP Hyperoptic offered to connect parts of the borough including the Cheney Court development after the council had a rather public falling out with BT

BT and the local authority were able to patch things up and agree on a deal that would see superfast FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) and ultrafast FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) installed throughout the borough.
