The London-based firm is building its own network of fibre optic cables that aims to provide the fastest broadband across the country for both homes and businesses.

The business deployed Transporter vans in its fleet last year and, following their success, has taken delivery of 11 liveried Crafters, supplied by VW Van Centres at Cordwallis Heathrow and Imperial Commercials Derby, with 18 more scheduled for later in the year. Hyperoptic has also agreed to add new Transporter and Caddy models to the fleet in 2018.

Cathie Bray, Hyperoptic fleet manager, said: “With the growth of our business, the reliability of the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brand made the choice easy. Our new livery looks incredible on all the vehicles we have, especially the new Crafters. The service and aftercare support we get from our two main suppliers, Cordwallis and Imperial Commercials, is outstanding and we are looking forward to seeing how Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brings new advances to its range of vehicles.”
