Hundreds of residents and small businesses in York have connected to Ultra Fibre Optic broadband from TalkTalk.
The connections come as part of an ongoing trial of the technology, which the company claims is capable of offering speeds 100-times faster than standard broadband.
The network, built by TalkTalk in partnership with Sky and CityFibre, now covers over 1,800 homes within the Rawcliffe, Clifton, Huntington and the Groves areas of York.
The provider added that all the trialists will be responsible for testing every element of the service, with a view to a January roll out.
TalkTalk has even claimed the service will be made available at the same price as standard broadband, stating it will help it more accessible to more people.
Dido Harding, TalkTalk Chief Executive said: “Ultra Fibre Optic will truly transform the broadband experience in York and we’ve been blown away by the local support. For such a leap in performance you’d expect to pay more, but we believe ultrafast broadband should be available to everyone.”
