Ultrafast Broadband

Gigabit broadband infrastructure is being developed throughout Bristol to help our economy grow and benefit our citizens. We’re working in partnership with telecoms providers to bring faster, more reliable and better connections to enable residents and businesses to unlock the full potential of the internet.

Check out the Government’s Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme to get a grant for ultrafast broadband.

What is it

Ultrafast broadband is defined by OFCOM as broadband with a download speed in excess of 300 megabits per second (mbps).  Ultrafast broadband is often delivered as a full fibre connection –  meaning fibre runs all the way to a home or a business.

Full fibre connections are different to older part fibre / part copper connections and benefit from faster speeds, higher capacity and greater reliability.  Full fibre connections offer speeds and performance which are not affected by distance away from a local telecoms cabinet – as is the case with connections where the final part of cable is copper.  Full fibre is also far more future proof than part fibre connections and can be scaled up to meet future challenges.

Full fibre and ultrafast offer a game changing experience for homes and businesses and are available in many parts of Bristol today.
