For those customers who do not need Ultima, Manx Telecom Broadband is still available utilising Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL2+) which offers speeds of up to 16Mbps downstream and up to 832Kbps (Kilobits per second) upstream.
Activation and Equipment
Ultima and Ultima Plus require a Manx Telecom engineer to visit your premises to convert a telephone socket. These do not require plug-in filters in every socket.
ADSL2+ is a 'Wires-Only' service and does not need an engineering visit. We will activate Broadband on your line and you simply plug in your filters and install your router.
You must have a compatible VDSL or ADSL2+ router to connect to Manx Telecom Broadband. We can offer a FREE router with many of our packages. Please see our Broadband Comparison page for further details.
Availability and Typical Speed Ranges
The Broadband speed you will receive is predominantly determined by your telephone line length. All telephone exchanges Island-wide are enabled for both Broadband and Ultima sevices so to see what speeds you could be receiving simply enter your telephone telephone number in our speed checker on this link below.
