- Ultra-fast fibre to your door.

- Built with tomorrow’s technology in mind
- We put you in the driving seat of your home technology instead of being slave to a slow connection.
Fantastic television needs fantastic network connections.
When you have a superfast broadband connection, you are capable of accessing very heavy data-compressed communications.
That means you can now enjoy BBC iPlayer, as well as the other on-demand services from terrestrial TV stations.
It means you will be capable of streaming high definition films and programmes from subscription services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime.
You can now watch the latest films and TV series in the way you were always meant to.
Free yourself from the commute and the office
With superfast broadband at your disposal, working from home can become a reality.
For hundreds of thousands of people today, all that is required to work efficiently from home is a good broadband connection, a computer and a telephone.
You can upload and download even the biggest of files in seconds. You can confidently meet up with work colleagues and customers using video-calling.
With superfast broadband installed, this opens the door to working from home - a switch which can be life-changing in terms of quality of life if it means spending a little more time with your family or gaining the flexibility to be able to pick up and drop off your little ones at school.
It can also save time wasted on commuting as well as reducing your carbon footprint.
Helps the kids - to work and play
In households with slow broadband, children are not able to download the online learning tools that their schools mates can, which can put them at a disadvantage.
In homes where multiple devices cause slow broadband to slow further, it is sometimes the children who are the ones to miss out because the parents need to complete an important work document.
Superfast broadband means that not only can everyone in the home have full use of their devices at the same time but online resources like BBC Learning can now be accessed.
Also, with better connections enabling you to accept and make payments easily, the kids can enjoy online gaming services, and so can you.
