GFast uses the same Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) technology as Superfast, but we turbo charge the connection between the cabinet and your property to give even higher speeds. Because of this, we can usually only offer GFast broadband to homes and businesses that are close to their exchange.
You might also hear GFast broadband called VDSL2 and sometimes Ultrafast broadband as it offer speeds over 300 Mbps.
