26 Nov Thousands in Essex to get broadband boost
Downloading a film and sharing or streaming content could become faster and more reliable for more than 15,000 homes and businesses in parts of Essex.
People living in Colchester and Purfleet are set to benefit from access to some of the fastest broadband speeds available (up to 330 Mbps), providing enough bandwidth for a family of four to all stream ultra HD or 4k quality movies or TV simultaneously.
It’s after Openreach, the UK’s largest telephone and broadband network, announced the next 81 locations to be upgraded under their ultrafast broadband investment.
As well as adding even more reliability and resilience to the network – meaning the connection is less likely to drop out – ultrafast broadband brings faster speeds and greater capacity for multiple devices and applications like on-demand video, Virtual Reality gaming and smart home technology.
