Glasshouse Gardens, Stratford, Lendlease

Providing access to high-speed broadband connections was an essential element for global developer Lendlease, and so they selected GTC’s future-proof Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) network for an ultrafast solution.

Sector: Residential

Utilities: Fibre

Olympic Connection
A striking, modern development of 333 one- and two-bedroom apartments on the site of the London 2012 Games in Stratford, Glasshouse Gardens showcases the latest in sustainable building practice and innovation.

The need for speed

Stratford is now one of London’s most vibrant and accessible areas in which to live and work with nine rail links and over 200 trains an hour at peak times. GTC’s FTTH networks ensure these high-speed connections are mirrored online, with infinite network capacity built-in to keep pace with ever-increasing demand; a feature Lendlease recognised as increasingly important in today’s competitive market.

GTC’s gigabit-capable broadband solution is pure end-to-end fibre technology. With no copper anywhere, not even for the ‘last mile’ service, speeds are reliably and consistently delivered, and homeowners can access the best online experience on the day they move in.

Fibre Integrated Reception System (FIRS)

Due to an innovative partnership between GTC and Sky, Lendlease can also offer their customers Sky TV free for 12 months with SkyQ options as part of their moving-in package.

GTC fibre networks support a Fibre Integrated Reception System (FIRS) option, which removes the need for unsightly individual satellite dishes and extends access to premium TV and radio services including 3D, HD and On-Demand viewing. The system delivers TV services via fibre cables directly into each apartment utilising a single central satellite receiver and aerial array to serve the whole site.
