Spectrum Internet bring more full fibre to Bristol
A bit of good news for a Friday afternoon, the 24 premises in Old School Lane, Bristol have jumped from just ADSL2+ speeds to full fibre courtesy of Spectrum Internet.
I bought my house in the heart of Bristol 9 years ago. It was one of a new development overlooking the harbour, fabulous! Imagine my horror when I discovered the best broadband available was 6mbs down and 2mbs up! I spent the next 9 years trying to get a better service, even resorting to a very expensive cellular service. Then in 2018 I came across Spectrum and a solution started to materialise.
A few months on and I now have the fastest broadband I have ever encountered! If that is not good enough their customer service is simply the best I have dealt with, what a delight these days to be engaged with such a business. Fantastic!Resident and Community Champion for the project, Dave Roberts
The roll-out was supported with vouchers from the Gigabit Voucher Scheme and for others thinking of taking part it is worth reminding everyone that residential users if claiming a £500 voucher towards a community install will need to pay the £100 of VAT that is due, also under the Gigabit Voucher Scheme you need at least one business claiming a voucher before residents can. The very recently launched Rural Gigabit Connectivity scheme does not carry the same business requirement but is obviously restricted to rural locations.
