80 Mbps services on the way to Digital Region services
Not content with having FTTC available to 80% of premises in the South Yorkshire, it appears that Digital Region is to adopt the VDSL2 profile that allows for up to 80 Mbps connection speeds. littlebigone.com's website under its package pages informs potential customers that an 80 Mbps option will appear later in April.
The provider also states the average connection speed is 37 Mbps downstream and 8.1 Mbps upstream. With some 60% of customers achieving the full 40 Meg sync now, then a good many look set to benefit greatly from a profile change. While FTTC is still distance dependent, it appears to perform better than previous ADSL2+ services in respect to the percentage who receive slow speeds, as only 3% of littlebigone customers get less than 10 Mbps for downstream connection speed.
