Gigabit capable fibre

Providing homeowners with unrivalled broadband and TV services was integral to Bellway Homes’ plans for Kings Mead in Reading, a development which aspires to provide contemporary living at its very best. Working in partnership with Sky, GTC supplied a market-leading package of first-class TV and gigabit-capable fibre broadband, along with networks for gas and electricity.

From day one, homeowners experience a package of superior TV services from Sky, along with fixed-line home phone supplied by GTC’s fibre-optic network all the way to the home for the ultimate online experience. Importantly, these services are working and available to Bellway’s new homeowners on the day they move in.


A Fibre Integrated Reception System (FIRS) installed by GTC, with central satellite receiver and aerial array, provides a full range of leading TV and radio services including Sky Q to the entire Kings Mead site. This solution avoids the need for unsightly individual satellite dishes.

“Kings Mead has been carefully planned to ensure residents enjoy all the benefits of living within a stone’s throw of a vibrant town centre. The location offers great shopping, dining and transport links, as well as proximity to a number of good schools. However, it is clear that the provision of utilities such as gas and electricity, along with premium broadband and TV services, plays an essential role in creating a high standard of modern living.”
