What type of broadband is available in Edinburgh?

Fibre-optic broadband now serves more [homes](https://www.quotezone.co.uk/home-insurance) and businesses across Edinburgh than ever before. There has been mass upgrading of the Openreach network in the area to FTTP: a much faster type of broadband which connects directly into a property.

It’s not just Openreach who are improving broadband speeds here: Virgin Media O2 is also extending their Edinburgh network.  Some locations are even receiving Virgin Media’s gigabit broadband, which offers the fastest broadband speeds.

Not all areas get these high speed fibre connections yet, but they can still receive excellent service from providers via ADSL. Though infamous for its slow speeds, ADSL broadband in Edinburgh is well above the national average in terms of speed, at 10 Mbps.


Which is the most popular Edinburgh broadband provider?

Virgin Media O2 is Edinburgh’s most popular provider.  With their notoriously fast speeds and packages with additional services, this company really suits the modern internet user and business in the city.


What is the best broadband provider for students in Edinburgh?

As a student, fast broadband speeds are important – especially if you have housemates who’ll be sharing the broadband with you.

If budget is a concern, as long as there are fewer than three of you sharing the broadband, you can probably manage on a cheap 10 Mbps download speed package.

If speed is key, opt for a fibre package, choosing what can afford in the 50 Mbps to 1 Gbps range.
