Broadband in Worcester

A famous cathedral city with thousands of years of history, Worcester is the quintessential English city. Well-known as a hub for trade and manufacture, Worcester in the modern day relies on broadband for its knowledge and service based economy.

Broadband for local business

Worcester is extremely broadband dependant, with plenty of banking and financial services relying on having a network at that is reliable and fast. Hospitality and retail businesses also depend its broadband infrastructure, as well as the University of Worcester.

In 2010, BT installed fibre-optic technology that brought superfast broadband to Worcester and supplied thousands of properties in the area with a better network. However, the whole of the city is not yet covered, something that the Connecting Worcester expansion plan aims to rectify by the end of this year.

Speed and Availability

Whilst in general, broadband services across Worcester are serviceable and on par with the UK average, there are some parts of the city where the network could use improvement. Areas such as Black Pole, Trotshill and Northwich all stand to gain faster broadband at some point in the future.

Mobile broadband in the city is also something that has seen improvement, with 4G services hitting the area in the last few years. Mobile providers such as EE and Vodafone are pioneers in this aspect, and customers of these firms can enjoy a stable 4G connection.

Providers

Most of the well-known UK providers have services available in Worcester, with Virgin Media, Sky and TalkTalk providing stable and strong connections.

Plusnet, however, has to be known as the best choice in Worcester, as the locally based ISP offers the best broadband speeds in the area. Plusnet customers can enjoy fibre-optic speeds at a price lower than its rivals, making it a great option for those looking for the best connection.

Summary

Worcester has recently improved its broadband network, with further upgrades expected very soon. Speeds mostly rival the best the UK has to offer and only stand to get better in more remote parts of the city, where they are currently lacking.
