Broadband on the Isle of Dogs has historically been pretty terrible. However, there are a few options available.

Hyperoptic

Hyperoptic have finished their installation into the Odyssey, and broadband speeds of 20mb/s, 100mb/s and 1000mb/s are available! The service seems to be very stable so far, and is far superior to any BT offering.

Hyperoptic's website is here.

BT-based Fibre Broadband

Fibre broadband is not available to The Odyssey, neither FTTC (Fibre To The Cabinet) or FTTP (Fibre To The Premises). BT were talking with the freeholder (Estates and Management) but never seemed to work out a deal for FTTP due to the large installation costs involved. Subsequently there was talk of a FTTC cabinet being installed nearby, but this never happened.

ADSL Broadband

All standard broadband suppliers will supply "old school" broadband (i.e. broadband over your phone line) to properties on the Isle of Dogs, but due to the mass overloading at the Poplar exchange, speeds are variable, but generally below 8mbit/second.
