Broadband in Coventry

Coventry is a thriving modern city with a rich history of industry. Known for its three spires and ribbon-making industry, the city also has plenty of modern hotspots including some of the best architecture in the country and huge venues such as the Ricoh Arena.

As the UK’s 11th biggest city, Coventry hosts a large consumer and business population, known for its innovations in industry and technology. As such, its broadband network needs to be stable and reliable in order for business to prosper and encourage high-tech industries to choose Coventry as their place of work.

Broadband for all businesses

Broadband connections in Coventry have made great improvements in recent years, with the city receiving a fast fibre-optic infrastructure that allows homes and businesses to reach high speeds.

The city centre, where most of the businesses are found, enjoys a largely uninterrupted connection, with speeds just over average compared to the rest of the UK. Coventry residents can also enjoy coverage from all the major UK broadband providers, including lesser-used ones such as Hyperoptic and Zen Internet.

Speeds and availability

On average, broadband speeds in Coventry reach just above what the majority of the UK experiences. Tests show that the average download speed is 19Mb whilst the upload speed is at a lower 2Mb. The absolute fastest download speed was found to be a huge 294Mb, something that standard customers are unlikely to experience.

Out of all the postcodes found in Coventry, CV2 was found to have the highest average broadband speed in the city, with most residents receiving 22Mb or higher. On the other end of the scale, CV4 residents are only getting around 13.7Mb on average; the lowest speed in the area.

Despite this, the vast majority of the city has fibre-optic broadband available to them, with a recent expansion adding more cables and availability, as well as hyper-fast providers such as Hyperoptic available to customers.

Broadband providers   

Coventry has coverage from all the major UK broadband providers. Standard firms such as BT, TalkTalk and Plusnet are present as well as lesser-used companies such as Hyperoptic, Zen Internet and Fuel Broadband.

The majority of providers now offer a fibre-optic option in the area, with Virgin Media reaching speeds of over 50Mb and Hyperoptic managing up to 100.

Summary

Coventry hosts a broadband infrastructure you’d expect from a modern British city. With many providers and broadband types represented, both businesses and homes in Coventry can enjoy a stable, fast and reliable connection with whatever package they choose to go for.
