What is superfast broadband?

Superfast broadband isn’t just fast broadband - it’s so much more. It can open up a whole world of possibilities.

Superfast broadband allows you to browse the internet, access entertainment, work, and keep in touch with friends and family at speeds that are far faster than a standard broadband connection.

If you just want to use the internet to surf the web, access social media, do a bit of shopping, and watch some videos on YouTube now and again – then standard broadband with speeds of less than 20Mbps is more than likely going to be enough for you.

But if you would like to stream TV, play online games, or make video calls using multiple devices in your home, without any effect on speed or quality, then superfast broadband with speeds over 30Mbps may be what you need.

Where fibre optic cabling is not yet available superfast connections can be possible via alternative technologies such as fixed wireless, satellite or mobile.

Why go superfast?

Superfast broadband allows you to communicate and share the things that are most important to you in a quicker and more reliable way.  Whether you're surfing the web, chatting to family on the other side of the world or discovering new places to visit, with a high speed internet connection it's so much better.
