HBF partners with GTC to deliver ultrafast fibre

GTC’s UltraStream300 fibre network enables house builders to provide their customers with the services they demand from a 21st century new home, with speeds of 300Mbps available now, and ready for 1Gbps when future higher speeds are needed by households.  New homeowners will also benefit from a fixed line phone service, discounted Sky TV packages and a wide choice of broadband packages currently from four independent service providers.

GTC also offers a commercial package, it says ensures house builders will not face higher costs by choosing GTC’s UltraStream300 fibre network, achieved via a competitive structure of rebates payable to HBF members on connection.

GTC’s open-access fibre network is delivered as part of a multi-utility installation ensuring live connections for all utilities, including fibre, are made prior to the new homeowner moving in.

Peter Andrew, HBF’s Deputy Chairman said, “Broadband speed is seen by many home buyers as being absolutely essential to  the way we live and communicate today.  House builders have the challenge of ensuring their new homes keep pace with future advances and the GTC agreement provides HBF Members with another option for a service that exceeds these demands today, but importantly futureproofs new homes for the greater demands to come.”

Clive Linsdell, GTC’s CEO said, “GTC is delighted to offer HBF members a market leading Fibre-to-the-Premise product, backed by the familiar long-term reliability of GTC’s service delivery.  Many HBF members rely on our service to ensure housing completions are made on time, and we are pleased to extend the benefits of GTC’ s services into Telecoms where reliable service is also much needed.”
