Happy New Year! Superfast broadband has spread even further across Hampshire in the last few months. Now 95% of the county can access speeds of 24 megabits per second (Mbps) or more. Here are some of the cabinets that have recently gone live:
Fair Oak V33
Itchen Abbas 5
Kings Somborne 1
Kings Somborne 6
Locks Heath 50
Locks Heath 52
Locks Heath V5005
Locks Heath V5080
Milford On Sea V1
Monk Sherborne V31
Turgis Green 11
You can find out if you’ve been upgraded to get superfast broadband by simply typing your postcode into the checker on our homepage. You can register here to be told if you’re due to get superfast speeds in the near future.
Note: If superfast broadband is available where you live, you will not automatically get faster speeds. You need to contact an Internet Service Provider of your choice and upgrade by ordering a fibre internet package they offer.
Internet speed less than 2Mbps?
The Better Basic Broadband Scheme closed at the end of December. However, following more funding being made available, BDUK are releasing the scheme again in February with new guidelines. Watch this space!
