Keycom and Vision Fibre Media help the Barbican to buzz with Britain’s fastest broadband speeds

Communications and broadband experts Keycom and Vision Fibre Media have worked in partnership to supply state of the art fibre optic broadband to one of London’s best known addresses.
Residents of the Barbican can now enjoy speeds of up to 1 Gb/s (one gigabit per second) – the UK’s fastest broadband.
The fibre optic network has been supplied and installed by Keycom to Vision Fibre Media who provide TV, Broadband and Telephony to the City of London’s Barbican Estate.
Residents are able to choose broadband packages with speeds ranging from 20Mbs up to 1Gbps.
The fastest option is around 68 times faster than the UK average broadband speed.
Keycom and Vision Fibre Media worked together in 2014 to provide superfast broadband to London’s exclusive Kings Chelsea housing development.
Ian Ratcliffe, Director of Vision Fibre Media, commented: “Barbican residents can now enjoy the fastest broadband in the City of London, including TV and super-fast video streaming without buffering.”
“We are delighted to renew our successful association with Vision Fibre Media,” said Meri Braziel, Managing Director of Keycom.
“At the Barbican, we have been able to install fibre optics all the way into the properties which means that the system benefits from unlimited capacity.
“Barbican residents had previously endured slow and unreliable connections with speeds of around 6Mbs.”
The service is currently being rolled out to the 2,000 properties in the Barbican.
The Government classifies speeds of 20 Mbps and above as superfast broadband.
Keycom provides broadband services to a wide range of sectors including student accommodation, hospital accommodation and military accommodation. Exceptional broadband speeds are backed up by 24 hours a day support from staff at Keycom’s Stafford based offices.
