What does 'up to 100Mb' mean?


Our phone and broadband packages offer broadband speeds of up to 100Mb in Fibre Broadband enabled areas, up to 24Mb in Enhanced Broaband areas and finally up to 7.1Mb in all other broadband areas.

Our fibre broadband technology is capable of up to 100Mb speeds. What you'll actually get is determined by:

  • Distance from your green street cabinet: Fibre optic cabling runs from your local telephone exchange to your nearest green cabinet. A short standard copper phone line then runs from the green cabinet to your premises. Shorter phone lines can support higher speeds. So, the longer the phone line the slower the speed.
  • The quality of your phone line: The short length of copper phone line between your nearest green street cabinet and your premises consists of 2 insulated copper conductors twisted round each other. Damaged, corroded copper or poor connections between cables will mean poorer speeds.
  • Signing up for a 100Mb fibre broadband package means you will get the fastest speeds your landline can support, up to a maximum of 100Mb.


Our standard broadband (ADSL & ADSL2) speeds are determined by:

  • Distance from your telephone exchange: A standard phone line can be several miles long, from your local exchange to your address. Shorter phone lines can support higher speeds. So, the longer the phone line the slower the speed.
  • If your telephone exchange has been upgraded: Many exchanges have been upgraded to ADSL2+ (otherwise known as Enhanced Broadband), meaning that faster speeds can be provided.
  • The quality of your telephone line: A phone line consists of 2 insulated copper conductors twisted round each other. Damaged, corroded copper or poor connections between cables will mean poorer speeds.
  • Your wholesale broadband product:
    • ADSL2+ offers speeds up to 24Mb
    • ADSL offers speeds up to 7.1Mb
