Broadband in Exeter

An 11th century city packed with history, Exeter’s classic Roman-inspired architecture make it the most picturesque town in Devon. Home of the Met Office and sporting one of Britain’s top universities, Exeter relies on a strong broadband network to keep business running.

Academic broadband

The University of Exeter is the city’s largest employer, with both the university and its students relying on fast broadband in order to function correctly. As well as this, the city is a hotspot for startup business and new job opportunities such as Exeter Science park, all requiring reliable online connections.

The local council has been important in upgrading the city’s broadband, orchestrating a BT rollout in 2011, allowing the majority of properties to be connected to superfast broadband.

Speed and availability

BT’s recent expansion into Exeter has meant that potential broadband speeds have risen immensely, with some providers offering speeds close to 100Mb. On average, the city’s broadband runs at around 14 to 15Mb, with this increasing in central  Exeter.

Currently, the EX1 area boasts the strongest broadband on average, with speeds reaching to nearly 20Mb. EX6, however, only has an average speed of around 5Mb, making it the slowest area in the city.

Virgin boasts the highest speeds out of all the providers, with an average download rate of 19Mb. Despite this, fibre-optic connections are available from a number of providers, including BT and TalkTalk.
