More FTTP in Suffolk to help businesses
Some lucky businesses on the Ransomes Industrial Estate near the Suffolk Showground in Ipswich now have the option of a FTTP service via the Openreach network and thus is available from a variety of providers who resell the WBC-FTTP service (e.g. AAISP and Claranet to name just two). This means available speeds will jump from the current ADSL2+ speed of 3 to 7 Mbps to whatever speed it purchased from 40 Mbps through to 330 Mbps in the download direction and 30 Mbps for uploads.
Suffolk County in September 2014 recorded a median download of 12.2 Mbps, which may not sound that amazing but when compared to a median of 2.6 Mbps just three years ago you can see how things have progressed, in 2009 the median was actually below 2 Mbps.
