There are a range of great broadband deals on offer in Glasgow. As well as broadband-only packages, you can choose from bundles that include home phone, TV and even mobile phone services all under the same contract.
Options available for consumers in Glasgow include standard ADSL broadband, superfast fibre and cable solutions.
Some locations can also benefit from even faster fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) services, which is the fastest broadband technology currently available in the U.K. Openreach and Cityfibre are among the companies building these ultrafast networks.
For those who only use the internet occasionally for casual browsing and social media, standard broadband with speeds of around 11Mbps should be more than adequate. However, if you plan on using streaming services regularly or have multiple users in the home connecting simultaneously, a fibre deal is likely to be a better option.
Therefore, it's important to understand what services you expect to use your broadband for, as well as what extras will be useful to you. For example, if you have multiple users connecting via Wi-Fi, a provider that offers a quality wireless router will be a must, while extras like parental controls and the ability to manage your connection easily via an app may be useful to some users.
Like most UK cities, the exact speed you can achieve will depend on where you live, and the quality of services can vary from place to place. While most locations can enjoy fast fibre solutions, there may still be some streets where this is not available. In general, most residences can expect a speed of around 11Mbps for standard ADSL broadband, or 36Mbps for entry-level fibre services.
Although the majority of places can access fibre, some faster services such as Virgin Media's cable network and FTTP may be more limited in their coverage.
