Superfast Broadband

What is superfast broadband?

'Superfast' broadband is a type of internet connection that provides faster speeds than traditional ADSL broadband but slower speeds than 'Ultrafast' broadband. It typically uses a combination of fibre-optic and copper cables to transmit data, allowing for faster connection. Superfast broadband can offer speeds of between 24Mbps and 300Mbps, which is several times faster than standard ADSL broadband. Superfast broadband is widely available across the UK and is a popular choice for home and business users who need faster internet speeds than traditional broadband can offer but don't require the extreme speeds provided by ultrafast broadband.
