Change to a brand new broadband contract? The complete fiber firm Hyperoptic has solved a giant drawback

Broadband provider Hyperoptic has announced a clever new plan to avoid one of the biggest hurdles in installing connections in customer homes – drilling unsightly holes in walls and running cables between rooms to find the best spot for the wireless router. This is something that all broadband companies have to deal with, although it is more common with broadband providers that do not use the openreach infrastructure.

While you can switch between broadband companies using the same openreach cables (BT, EE, Sky, TalkTalk, etc) without visiting an engineer or drilling new holes in your home, suppliers who rely on their own cables will Most likely, you will need to connect your home the first time you sign a contract. Hyperoptic makes this process a lot less painful than it could be with its new “discrete cabling installation” that now comes with full fiber service as standard.

According to the broadband company, which specializes in gigabit-enabled broadband (which is roughly 15 times faster nationwide than the nationwide average home broadband speed), using its new discrete option wouldn’t take any longer than existing methods. In fact, Hyperoptic expects installation in some apartment blocks to be accelerated by up to 50 percent.

Not only is this discreet cabling used to quietly snake cables through the building’s hallways – something Hyperoptic believes is especially useful in apartment blocks with no existing ducts or open spaces – but it can also be used in customer homes. Only two millimeters in diameter, only a tiny drop of glue is required to hold the cable in place. Hence, no eyesore like clips and fasteners are required to keep the cable in place. In addition, holes between rooms can be hidden in a corner or ceiling duct because the cable is so slim.

This new technology – called InvisiLight – is not only much more aesthetically pleasing, but it can also be bent at 90-degree angles (so that it follows the corners of the room that are behind a baseboard, for example) without degrading the broadband Performance.

Installation at home takes around 30 to 45 minutes, according to Hyperoptic.

Liam McAvoy, Managing Director of Hyperoptic Business Development, announced the home installation innovation, saying, “Deploying fiber in buildings can be difficult and expensive. Our new discreet service is quick to install, practically invisible and can be installed in hallways and between floors to seamlessly connect residents with our Gigabit-enabled services. We strive to provide first class service that enables us to exceed the expectations of our 250+ developer partners. With this new discrete cabling we are taking our installation experience to the next level. “

It’s worth noting that Hyperoptic isn’t the only provider that relies on InvisiLight technology to outfit apartment blocks and individual houses. Openreach, which has around 4.5 million households connected to its ultra-fast gigabit-enabled broadband, also uses InvisiLight for some websites.

Hyperoptic – which only offers future-proof gigabit-enabled fiber optics – is available in around 43 cities across the UK. It has connected around 400,000 apartments across the country, with a total of two million apartments committed by the end of 2021. A total of five million apartments are expected by the end of 2024.
