Speed

Marketing statement: The speed of the service depends on the distance from the exchange to your premises, the type and quality of cable, may depend on other factors such as local radio interference, and can change over time. Use the availability checker to get a forecast of the speed for your specific location.

Warning: The speed estimate is usually quite good, but this is an estimate and is also very much outside our control. In general lines get close to or more than the forecast. If we can identify that there is a fault causing a lower than expected speed we will work to rectify that fault. However, simply having a lower speed than you would like is not always a fault.

Technical statement: ADSL2+ technology can allow download speeds up to 24Mb/s. This equates to around 21Mb/s of IP throughput, under ideal conditions.

Tariffs

We offer a range of tariffs, including packages for home users (Home::1) which allow usage from 200GB per month. You can change tariff any time you want at no cost, taking effect from your next billing month. If you do not use all of your quota in a billing month, half of the unused about is added to the next month as a quota bonus.
