We want to improve the estate’s digital infrastructure, allowing individuals, businesses and local institutions to interact seamlessly.

On 28 September 2017 we announced a landmark partnership with Britain’s largest digital network business to transform London’s digital landscape in the West End.

We have a five year £2 million digital investment programme across our London estate set to move these parts of central London from the 5% worst performing in the country for digital connections, to the top 5%.

With the UK’s first co-investment partnership between a major landowner and Openreach, we will make Gigabit broadband speeds available across 130 residential and business sites in Mayfair and Belgravia.

More than 600 homes and businesses access to download speeds more than 200 times faster than today’s UK average. At the same time hundreds more properties could benefit from significant upgrades bringing superfast speeds of up to 80 Megabits per second (Mbps).

We are also partnering with WiFi SPARK for the rollout of free WiFi pilots giving the public access of up to 300 Mbps.
