A select lucky few in west London will be among the first in the country to benefit from a new ultrafast broadband network being built by Openreach.
Download speeds of up to 330Mbps, about ten times the UK average, will be available to thousands of homes and businesses in the local area later this year.
People using it will be able to download a two hour HD film in just 90 seconds, a 45 minute HD TV show in just 16 seconds, and a nine hour audio book in just three seconds.
Mark Spells, Openreach’s director for regional infrastructure delivery for the South East, said: “This is great news for Hammersmith and Parsons Green.
“It’s a real coup to be at the forefront of the rollout of ultrafast broadband.
"Now we’ve identified this latest group of pilot locations, engineers will begin installing the new network.
"It will take a few months before people are able to use it.”
It adds to the significant work already completed in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, where Openreach has made fibre broadband, with speeds up to 80Mbps, available to more than 55,000 premises.
