What Broadband Speed Can I Expect?

Broadband speed is the rate at which information is sent (upstream speed) and received (downstream speed) on your line and is measured in Megabits per second (Mb/s). The speed of all Broadband services is predominately determined by the length of your telephone line.

ADSL2+ (Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Line) technology offers speeds up to 16Mb/s downstream and 832 Kilobits per second upstream

Ultima Broadband, delivered over VDSL (Very High Speed Digital Subscriber Line) technology offers speeds up to 40Mb/s downstream and up to 2Mb/s upstream. Ultima Broadband is available to customers whose line length is less than 2 kilometres.

Test Notes

We will always provide the best speed possible that your line can technically deliver depending on whether you take Broadband or Ultima Broadband, however speeds can vary and fall within a typical speed range for any given line length. This range is an indication of the speed that other similar length lines across the Island have achieved. The actual speed you achieve is dependent on several factors such as the wiring in your premises, the processing power of your computer(s), how many people are sharing your broadband connection at the same time, whether you are using a wireless or cable connected router, the speed of the websites you visit and how we manage our network. Speeds can be lower at peak times.
