Broadband in Brighton
Brash, bold and thoroughly modern, Brighton is a city that truly earns its moniker of “London by the sea”. Brighton’s booming young population has made the city a home for new digital businesses, with sectors ranging from digital marketing to video game development.
A modern broadband network
Currently, both Brighton and Hove are in the running to receive superfast broadband funding as part of the second round of the government rollout. Due the nature of its digital economy, a stable broadband network in Brighton is essential for both standard residents and businesses.
Whilst the city is in need of faster broadband in general, most properties have a competent and stable connection. In 2012, many of the providers who offer broadband in the area announced that they were extending connections in order to improve service after they received complaints about slowdowns do to oversubscription. Brighton’s surprisingly big population means that broadband needs to be akin to areas such as London and Manchester.
Speed and Availability
Despite the city’s bid for Government funding to increase broadband speeds, Brighton has a faster-than-average speed for the majority of residents. The city centre in particular offers the fastest speeds, with many properties in the BN1 6 area seeing over 10Mb on most days. Parts of Hove are also strong in this aspect, with many residential areas seeing improvements in broadband.
Whilst there are some areas of the city which may experience lesser coverage, (such as Bevendean, Hollingbury and Preston) these are generally rare. Properties on the outskirts of the city also don’t have to suffer poor connections, as Brighton’s network reaches beyond just the city centre.
Finding the cheapest and best broadband package for you is easy in Brighton, as all the major UK providers have services in the city. Customers can choose from ISPs such as BT, Virgin Media, TalkTalk and Sky.
Overall, Virgin Media has been found to be the fastest in the area, with customer potentially running speeds of up to 25Mb. This is due to Virgin’s superior fibre-optic service, which brings cables directly to the property. Other providers do however offer fibre-optic services which come close to matching Virgin’s speed.
