Residents and small businesses in Edinburgh can now receive some of the fastest internet speeds in the UK, thanks to the arrival of Vodafone Gigafast Full-Fibre Broadband.
Vodafone Gigafast full fibre Broadband is live in Balerno, Restalrig and Liberton and will be available in more places across Edinburgh as CityFibre, the UK’s third national digital infrastructure platform, the UK’s largest alternative provider of wholesale fibre network infrastructure, deploys the full fibre network over the next few years.
Unlike most home broadband services based on old telephone lines, Vodafone Gigafast Broadband uses all optical-fibre cables at every stage of the connection.
This gives users download speeds of up to 900Mbps, which is 16 times faster, and upload speeds 125 times faster, than the average fixed broadband service in the UK. Once connected, Vodafone Gigafast Broadband allows the whole family to stream their favourite films, play online games or upload videos and photos across multiple devices with almost no time lag or buffering – all at the same time.
