Sky has partnered with Fibre Options to deliver TV services via fibre cables to the residents of London’s latest Greenwich Peninsula development.

Developed by Knight Dragon, Greenwich Peninsula sits adjacent to Canary Wharf on the banks of the Thames. Comprising five residential districts, it is currently the largest development of its kind in the UK. It is set to provide London with over 15,000 new homes and 12,000 new jobs.

Serviced by the Jubilee Line, the scheme will include two schools, independent shops, restaurants, public squares and parkland. There will also be a 5km running track weaving through the different neighbourhoods.

Properties vary from studio flats to 3 bedroom apartments to luxurious penthouses.

Delivering TV services via fibre cables

All homes in the development are to be fitted with Fibre to the Home (FTTH) technology, which can deliver speeds of up to 1Gbps.

As part of its partnership with Sky, residents who sign up to the Fibre Options purefibre high-speed (1Gbps or 100Mbps) broadband packages will be given the opportunity to access Sky’s full range of TV services, including Sky+HD.

By partnering to deliver TV via fibre cables, Sky’s services can be provided without the need for individual satellite dishes to be installed.
