There’s a full fibre revolution happening on the Fylde Coast… Fibre Blackpool.
A £3.1m investment to bring gigabit capable full fibre connectivity to our area means that slow, unreliable internet connections will be consigned to the past!
The Fylde Coast fibre network is being extended so that homes and businesses can enjoy a fast, reliable broadband and connectivity service from a range of internet service providers with services and packages to suit all budgets.
In our area, most broadband services are run over a mixture of traditional copper telephone lines (ADSL), a little bit of fibre, or coaxial cables. This limits the speeds and capabilities, and services won’t have equal upload and download speeds which often makes for a frustrating online experience.
What is Gigabit capable broadband?
- Gigabit broadband is an internet connection that offers speeds of 1 gigabit per second (1Gb) or more.
- 1 gigabit = 1,000 megabits so it’s a huge leap in connection speeds – to put that into context, a 1Gb service would allow you to download a HD film in seconds…
- Full fibre services are capable of being symmetrical, meaning the download and upload speeds are the same.
