  • Broadband Speeds Information

    Broadband speeds are measured in megabits per second (Mbps) and show how quickly you can transfer data to and from the internet.

    Average speeds are based on the download or upload speeds of at least 50% of customers at peak time. (8pm - 10pm).

    Broadband speed can be affected by the quality of your phone line, how far your home is from the telephone exchange, the wiring in your home, electrical interference and how many people are using your broadband at the same time. We'll use your postcode and phone number (if you provide it) to give you a personalised estimate of the speeds you can expect to receive. We can’t guarantee the broadband speed you’ll receive. The speed estimated at point of order may be different to what you actually receive. If you change premises, the speed that you receive may change due to the services that are available.
