    Standard Broadband

    Offering download speeds of up to 24Mbps, standard broadband is considered the slow by today’s standards. This type of broadband is usually delivered over a standard BT copper telephone line. The actual speed of this broadband in a postcode area is determined by how far it is from the nearest telephone exchange. The further away, the slower the maximum download speed. Upload speeds for standard broadband max out at 1Mbps, very slow indeed. The most common types of standard broadband are ADSL, ADSLMax and ADSL2+.

    Superfast Broadband

    The term Superfast Broadband covers a few different technologies, but what they have in common is that it covers max speeds over 24Mbps and up to 200Mbps.

    The most common superfast broadband is Fibre To The Cabinet (FTTC) broadband which your local street cabinet that your BT copper phone line connects to is connected to a fibre optic cable which gets over the distance problems of ADSL.

    Other types include some Fibre To The Property (FTTP) connections with speeds up to 200Mbps and Virgin Media’s Fibre Optic services with speeds up to 200Mbps.

    Ultrafast Broadband

    The very fastest broadband available is ultrafast broadband, this covers any service that is 200Mbps or faster. The very fastest services over 1Gbps speeds for both downloads and uploads (that’s over 40 times faster than the very fastest standard broadband download speeds).

    Almost all Ultrafast services rely on Fibre Optic technology. Most over Fibre To The Property (FTTP). Also included are Virgin Media’s Fibre Optic services with speeds over 200Mbps

    Mobile Broadband

    As mobile technology has advanced you can now in many areas use mobile broadband as an alternative to fixed-line broadband. The very fastest 5G connections in theory could provide speeds of 1000Mbps. However, in practice at the moment we are seeing speeds of around 100 to 150Mbps from 5G mobile broadband connections.

    Most mobile broadband suppliers will supply you with a special wi-fi router that acts just like the routers you get with fixed-line suppliers but which connects via the mobile network rather than a wired connection. This means that setup is very simple and quick, no need for engineers or cables to be installed. The additional bonus is that the router will be easy to move around your property should you need to, as well as be able to go with you if you move house or go on holiday (as long as coverage is good at your new location).

    When you sign up with a broadband provider for a new connection they will provide you with an estimated download speed that you should expect from them.
