Vodafone has extended its Gigafast Broadband roll-out to Birmingham, Bristol and Liverpool, meaning Gigabit speed broadband is now available in 15 towns and cities and is set to become available in three million homes and businesses across the UK over the next year.
The news also means Vodafone’s Gigafast Broadband service is now live on multiple infrastructure partners. The new cities follow a commercial deal signed with Openreach, the country’s largest network infrastructure provider, in November 2019.
The service will initially be available to 360,000 premises across the three cities expanding to over 500,000 premises by mid-2021 as Openreach extends its infrastructure. Meanwhile, 12 other towns and cities are part of an existing agreement with CityFibre.
Unlike most home broadband services based on old telephone lines, Vodafone’s full-fibre broadband uses all optical-fibre cables at every stage of the connection. This gives users download speeds of up to 900Mbps, which is 14 times faster than the average fixed broadband service in the UK. Residents and businesses across these cities will now be able to enjoy fast connectivity like never before and a reliable broadband connection.
Alongside Vodafone Gigafast Broadband, customers who have a Vodafone 5G smartphone across Birmingham, Bristol and Liverpool are already enjoying a fast and seamless mobile data performance.Click below to share this article
