Britain’s biggest housebuilder is partnering with the country’s major broadband providers to offer ultrafast broadband in all its new build.
It has long been an issue that residents on new developments have to wait several months before they are connected to digital service.
Purchasers of homes from Barratt Developments will be able to choose between BT, Virgin Media, Hyperoptic, Sky, TalkTalk, Vodafone, EE, Zen, Andrews and Arnold, Aquiss, Cerberus, Fibre Net, Giganet, Orbital Net, Pine Media, Spectrum, Structured, Syscomm and Uno.
It gives consumers the option to choose from a wide selection of speeds, costs and contractual options to suit their circumstances
Steven Boyes, Chief Operating Officer at Barratt Developments, said: “Every customer will now have the greatest choice of broadband speed, reliability, costs and packages at a time when data-hungry activities such as video streaming, home working and learning during the Covid-19 lockdown have never been needed more.
As of May 2020, 14% of UK properties had access to full-fibre connections.
