It's our most revolutionary and reliable broadband ever - the next generation of internet. Surf, shop, game, play, click, teach, talk, work, create, learn, buy, sell and watch without skipping a beat or slowing down.
It's ready for anything. Are you?
We start off with a girlfriend talking to her boyfriend using their laptops in their bedrooms. She's showing him how to put on a beauty face mask for the first time. Her connection starts to go blocky and becomes unintelligible. He asks if she's still there? He slams his laptop shut, and on the whiteboard behind, his most important task is to sort out his internet.
Introducing the next generation of the broadband.
A video producer is editing footage of a fast sports car before her deadline of 5pm. She needs to upload the finished footage as quickly as possible and is amazed that it reaches 100% complete in less than a second. 'Whoa'.
It's 10x faster.
It's a stormy night, and four gamers are gearing up for an evening session, lowering their headsets to multi-play. 'Let's do this'. 'What?', 'Come on' 'Yes!'.
It's 5 times more reliable.
An engineer is drilling through a wall setting up someone's Ultrafast broadband connection. She's in the house and hooking up the hardware needed. She lets the family of seven all sitting in the living room on their various devices, heads down connected to the internet. One girl pops her head up from her device to say 'Thanks'.
Connect more devices at once.

Built by Openreach.
At 1 Gbps, it’s up to 10 times faster than the average home broadband connection. That means faster game downloads, better quality video calls and higher resolution movie streaming.
You can use a lot more devices at once without experiencing slowdown – so more people can get online at once.
Even if you and the rest of your household are making video calls, streaming box sets or gaming online, all at the same time - you won’t experience stuttering, buffering or dropouts.
Enjoy Ultrafast broadband speeds even at the busiest times. We’ve built Ultrafast Full Fibre to be less affected by peak time congestion - so you can enjoy your Saturday night blockbuster in 4K without the dreaded buffering screen.
Ultrafast Full Fibre broadband will service your needs for decades to come. As fibre optic technology evolves, you'll already have everything that you need in your property to get the benefits - upgrade or downgrade your speed without ever needing an engineer to visit your home.
With an Ultrafast Full Fibre broadband package, we'll also upgrade your phone line - moving you away from the analogue telephone network that we're switching off in 2025 to a brand new digital phone line that uses the same technology as WhatsApp, Microsoft Teams, Zoom and Skype to make phone calls.
Use our availability checker to find out whether you can get Ultrafast Full Fibre. If you can get Full Fibre at your property, you'll need to order it from your chosen internet service provider - it's not an automatic upgrade onto the new network.
If it’s available, all you need to do is:

Our most reliable connection
Ultrafast Full fibre runs a fibre optic cable straight from our exchange to your door, meaning it won't let you down - so no more buffering or drop outs.
You might also hear Ultrafast Full Fibre broadband called Fibre to the Premise (FTTP), or Fibre to the Home (FTTH)
max 50Mbps upload speed
You'll be able to send that 2GB file in under 5.5 minutes.
Digital, Analogue or no phone line
We'll be switching off the ability to buy a traditional (or PSTN) phone line in September 2023. You can also choose not to order a phone line with this service (called Single order GFast or SoGFast). We recommend taking a digital phone line that plugs straight into your broadband to make calls.
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
max 20Mbps upload speed
You'll be able to send that 2GB file in 13.5 minutes.
Digital, Analogue or no phone line
We'll be switching off the ability to buy a traditional (or PSTN) phone line in September 2023. You can also choose not to order a phone line with this service (called Single order Generic Ethernet Access or SoGEA). We recommend taking a digital phone line that plugs straight into your broadband to make calls.
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.
You might also hear Superfast broadband called Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC), or VDSL.
max 1.4Mbps upload speed
You'll be able to send that 2GB file in 3.2 hours.
Analogue phone line
As part of our upgrade to phone lines across the UK, in 2022 we'll be launching the ability to take Standard broadband with a digital phone or no phone line at all with our Single Order Transitional Access Product (SoTAP).
Broadband over your phone line
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)
