Our aim is to provide minimum up/down speeds of at least 30Mbps (megabits per second) initially. This is the EU definition of “superfast broadband”. Speeds should not drop below 20Mbps at peak periods. We recognise that for really remote areas a superfast service may be difficult (or much more expensive) to provide, so we have set a target minimum speed of 10Mbps for harder-to-reach locations.

We will ask suppliers to provide options for those who want something faster, or who may not need 30Mbps. Speed options will probably priced in bands – just as commercial providers do. We also hope to make the network as “future proof” as we can, so the system can support up to 1Gbps (gigabits per second) in future, even if we can’t provide that immediately (1Gbps = approx 1,000 Mbps)
