    It's Superfast, but turbo-charged

    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.

    Superfast broadband uses Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) technology

    This means that we'll run a Fibre line from your exchange to your nearest cabinet. We then run broadband over the traditional copper wire from the cabinet to your home or business. This means that the further away from you are from your local cabinet, the slower your broadband speed is likely to be.

    We use the phone line from the exchange to your home or business to run broadband. The further you are from the exchange, the longer your phone line, which normally means a slower speed.

    You might also hear Standard broadband called Asymmetric Digital Subscriber line (ADSL).
