Ultrafast fibre

Welcome to the future

Ultrafast is an exciting new technology enabling connection speeds of around 300Mbps and in some cases up to 1Gbps — right into your home or business premises.

We know just how important broadband speeds are in modern homes, with many of our daily activities taking place online. Be it uploading pictures or videos to Facebook, downloading HD and now 4K films, or working from home, we all expect things online to happen quickly.

This is why we're working hard to bring fibre broadband to as many people as possible. Well over 25 million premises in the UK can already access our fibre network.

Technology never stands still, so building on the investment we've made in our existing fibre network, we're leading the way in trialling Ultrafast speeds.

We have trials currently running in the following UK locations; so please click on the links below to find out how you or your business could get involved:
