Standard, Super fast or Ultra fast Broadband

We see the words Super fast and Ultra fast being used in marketing for broadband connectivity all the time but what do they actually mean! (Stats can be found in House of Commons Library)

Superfast broadband

Superfast broadband does not have a single definition. The Government defines it as speeds greater than 24Mbps, whereas Ofcom and the European Commission define it as speeds greater than 30Mbps.

Ultrafast broadband

Ultrafast broadband does not have a single definition. The Government defines it as speeds of 100Mbps and higher, whereas Ofcom defines it as speeds greater than 300Mbps.

Where Standard broadband is concerned it is anything between 10Mbps and 30Mbps download.

About author

Oliver Flanagan
IT Consultant and Engineer
About me:
Although I am proud to say “I`m an IT Connectivity Consultant and Engineer”, my best one liner at the moment is:

“I solve your IT connectivity problems!”

If your IT connections are:

• Too Costly
• Too Slow
• Unreliable
• Non Existent

Then call me today on 07977 062861 or email me on avenn@observit.co.uk

So what qualifies me to tackle your IT Challenges?

For 17+ years I have worked on projects with blue-chip companies and government departments, including PWC, Pfizer, BT, Colt Telecom, BNFL, NATO, USAF and the Royal Bank of Malawi.

I have taken numerous IT connectivity problems through problem analysis, solution design, implementation and review. I liaise with senior management, development teams and the end users to get a full picture of the problem and what’s required to fix it.

I take the integrity of my business seriously and consider it crucial to be honest and upfront to customers. If I`m not the solution for you then I will say so. It’s far more important to maintain a professional reputation than gain a quick short term buck.

When I`m not engineering or consulting I`m probably drinking posh coffee on a training course or researching new problem solving technology. After all we are in an IT revolution and keeping up to date is vital.

Thanks for reading.
