November 30, 2016

Hyperoptic, the UK’s leading Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband provider, won the coveted “Broadband Pioneer” award at last night’s World Communications Awards, beating off stiff competition from Openreach, ITS Technology Group Ltd and Telkom Indonesia.

The World Communication Awards is the largest awards ceremony in global telecoms, recognising the very best in industry innovation and performance. The accolade showcases Hyperoptic’s success in redefining the broadband market in the UK and setting the industry gold standard for fibre broadband.

Steve Holford, Chief Customer Officer, Hyperoptic, comments: “Being recognised on a global level as a broadband pioneer is hugely rewarding – we have worked tirelessly to educate the market that our Fibre-to-the-Premises approach is the best and only solution that will enable our country to achieve its full digital potential.
“We were the first company to launch full fibre consumer gigabit services and we are committed to keep leading the pack to give the UK the connectivity it deserves - so that businesses can thrive and consumers can enjoy all the opportunities that unfettered Internet access enables.”
