I registered our interest online with Hyperoptic on 11 November 2013, and the first and so far only thing I have heard back was a flyer dated 30 July 2014 received in the post on 12 August 2014 headed “Hurry, last chance…[etc.]“, which prompted me to 're-register' on their website.
I could be wrong, but I think we already have an installation hatch in place on the ground floor of our stairwell. If I am right, it is not very obtrusive nor particularly unsightly, and I am warming up to Hyperoptic again, as I think they could be our best shot at getting fast broadband this decade.
I recommend a browse-through the FAQs on the Hyperoptic website: https://hyperoptic.com/web/guest/faq
