Neither BT nor Virgin can yet supply superfast fibre optic broadband to our block of flats and there is no prospect of either doing so soon. We have instead been approached by Hyperoptic who will install a superfast system if sufficient residents sign up for it. Has anyone any experience of Hyperoptic?

Roughly where are you located, Nick? Are you on a BT exchange-only line at the moment.

Mill Street, SE1. Yes- we are on BT only.

Anyone had any experience of Relish yet? They advertise 30-50Mbps via 4G with unlimited data for home broadband.

Yeah there's a whole thread about it here:

Consensus seems to be if you have good signal it's fairly reliable and fast, but if you want to do anything fancy such as VPN then you're S.O.L.

Also some people find customer support rubbish, but I've found it quite good.
