Broadband in Gloucester

Found in the heart of rural England, Gloucester was founded by the Romans and today boasts a huge student population as well as an IT-based local economy. Despite its rural location, Gloucester enjoys a surprisingly stable broadband network backed up by the UK’s biggest providers, ensuring its student and business population are well catered for.

Stable rural broadband

Gloucester has always been the centre of new and innovative technology; whether it’s  engineering, industry or digital. Demand for fast broadband speeds is therefore very high, with Gloucester offering a more stable network than you’d expect.

In recent years, the city has also seen an influx of students, meaning the area has had to step up its game in terms of broadband. Whilst the network has improved immensely over the last few years, there are plans to provide further properties with superfast broadband in the near future.

Speed and Availability

Modern Gloucester boasts an average broadband speed that is generally above what other UK cities have to offer, meaning that both commercial and domestic customers can enjoy good coverage when connecting online.

Despite this, areas in the north of the city and the outskirts may come up short when it comes to broadband speeds, with Down Hatherley and Quedgeley proving to be some of the slower areas of the city. Moving into the city centre and the GL3 2 area, users can experience a much faster connection.


With all the major UK ISPs established in Gloucester, finding a cheap broadband deal is just as easy as anywhere else. Shopping around and comparing deals is essential, as you can often find a fast connection speed cheaper with some providers than with others.

Some providers offer fibre-optic packages, and whilst these are not available in all areas of Gloucester, the majority of users will be able to upgrade to fibre-optic, with the rest hopefully being made able in the coming years as the service expands in the city.


Broadband in Gloucester rivals most others in the UK, especially those in similarly remote regions. Both business and casual online users will be able to find a strong connection here, and the variety of providers available makes shopping around for the best deal a possibility.
