Charter Quay goes hyper-sonic with fibre optic

Every apartment in Charter Quay now has access to a 1Gb broadband service supplied by Hyperoptic. Many of the residents have already connected to what is turning out to be a reliable service. In fact the speeds are so fast that even the fastest WiFi routers can only deliver a fraction of what's on offer. So if you're a speed freak, you'll simply have to connect the router to your computer with a cable.

 Faster issue reporting

This is Broken our new system for reporting issues to concierge is live on our website. The system automatically records the things you wish to report, enabling both faster resolution and tracking of any long term trends. 
Anything which is urgent we recommend you still give concierge a call (although based on latest tests we can confirm the system is darned fast!).
