News <strong>Matters</strong><br />




Catherine McGuinness, the<br />

<strong>City</strong> of London’s policy<br />

chairman, explains how<br />

the authority is working<br />

to ensure residents are<br />

no longer hampered by<br />

sluggish broadband<br />

We’re better<br />

connected<br />

THERE is nothing more frustrating than when<br />

the little wheel on your screen keeps going<br />

round and round and you’re in the middle<br />

of the best part of a film that you’ve been<br />

streaming, or when you can’t connect when<br />

you’re up against a deadline.<br />

In today’s modern world a fast Internet<br />

connection should be a basic human right, now<br />

more than ever before.<br />

Our lives have come to rely heavily on<br />

technology, be it to do business, read the daily<br />

news on a phone or tablet, catch up on the latest<br />

episode on Netflix or send emails from your<br />

computer.<br />

The Internet and the speed of it has become a<br />

necessity, not a luxury.<br />

Limited<br />

Historically the Capital has suffered from poor<br />

broadband speeds, with London being ranked<br />

26th out of 33 European capitals with the worst<br />

broadband speed.<br />

Most of the social housing estates across<br />

London run by the <strong>City</strong> of London Corporation<br />

only have copper wire broadband, which is<br />

limited to speeds of 10 megabits per second or<br />

less.<br />

We are now partnering with fibre providers<br />

Community Fibre, Hyperoptic and Vision Fibre<br />

Media to connect all of our housing estates with<br />

‘Fibre To The Premises’ (FTTP).<br />

FTTP will offer faster broadband – speeds up<br />

to one gigabit per second – at affordable prices,<br />

with a low priced, no contract option broadband<br />

service for those on benefits or low incomes.<br />

FTTP provides a fibre optic connection all the<br />

way from the telephone exchange to your home,<br />

whereas traditional fibre broadband or FTTC<br />

(Fibre-to-the-Cabinet) is a fibre connection<br />

to your local on-street cabinet, then a copper<br />

connection from the cabinet to your home –<br />

making everything a whole lot slower.<br />

FTTP will be rolled out to all 7,500 residents in<br />

the 12 central London housing estates which we<br />

run, by mid-2019. First to receive the superfast<br />

broadband or FTTP service will be residents<br />

living on the Avondale and Southwark estates.<br />

Installation has started and will be completed in<br />

two weeks.<br />

These new broadband services will stretch<br />

across all our housing in six London boroughs<br />

including Hackney, Islington, Lambeth,<br />

Lewisham, Tower Hamlets and, of course, here<br />

in the <strong>City</strong> of London. And communal areas on<br />

each estate will also benefit from a one gigabit<br />

per second WiFi hotspot for residents to use.<br />

The <strong>City</strong> of London Corporation continues<br />

talk to the government and the telecoms industry<br />

to respond to the pressing need to provide faster<br />

broadband for residents at an affordable price.<br />

Many local authorities are still viewed as a<br />

major barrier to providing improved broadband<br />

coverage to social housing estates. But our roll<br />

out of FTTP seeks to ensure that our residents<br />

are connected with first-class broadband at an<br />

affordable price.<br />

Soon, residents will be able to enjoy vastly<br />

improved wireless connectivity, and this project<br />

should ensure that a slow connection across the<br />

<strong>City</strong> of London’s social housing estates and in the<br />

Square Mile is a thing of the past.
