Broadband conversation

Broadband supplier Hyperoptic will be at Charter Quay on Thursday 15th February, between 5pm and 8pm to meet residents and talk about their latest broadband offers.

The Hyperoptic service has proven to be reliable. However, some residents have noticed a (sometimes substantial) reduction in connection speed compared to when the service was first installed. We therefore suggest you check the speed of your connection. If you're getting 50% or less of your contract speed, there is probably little point in upgrading the service and you may wish to try an alternative provider.

Check your broadband speed here and if you have time, please share the results with us.

Prudential Ride London

This year's Prudential Ride London takes place on Sunday 30th July. The professional race and the charity riders pass through Kingston twice, on their way to Surrey Hills in the morning and again on their return to London in the afternoon. The event brings a carnival atmosphere to Kingston, with events and activities planned for the ancient market square and across the borough.

Expect major road closures in the area from Saturday afternoon until late Sunday evening with severely restricted road access to Charter Quay. If you really do need to use your car that day, you are advised to park off-site. The best advice though is to forget all travel that day and enjoy the atmosphere in Kingston.

Visit the Prudential Ride London website for full details.
