The speed you can get for your home Wi-Fi in Aberdeen will depend on a number of factors, such as where your home is in relation to the nearest street-level cabinet, but in general, you can expect ADSL broadband to provide average speeds of 11Mbps, fibre broadband to offer speeds up to 67Mbps, and cable solutions to deliver services of up to 516Mbps where available.
While most of the city can access superfast fibre - defined as speeds of at least 24Mbps, coverage of cable services and fibre-to-the-premises offerings may be more limited, so it pays to use uSwitch's postcode checker to see what's available. This will show you all the services that you can access at your home, what speeds you can expect and the prices you can expect to pay.Back to top
