Want great broadband out of town? Coming soon - 5G broadband for rural areas

Are you living in a rural area and looking for an alternative to fibre broadband? Or is your current internet connection not fast enough?

Our low-band 5G broadband for rural areas delivering higher than superfast speeds will start to become available from 2022 and should be just the ticket for most of the UK.

How do you get 5G broadband in rural areas?

Low-band 5G

Our Superfast Plus 5G broadband will use low-band 5G (700Mhz). That's the next set of frequencies which have just started to be rolled out across the UK. These signals travel much further than the mid-band 5G services which are only available in major urban locations.

So with low-band 5G, each mast can provide much wider coverage and what’s more, low-band signals are far better at passing through walls and windows.

The range and performance of low-band 5G broadband means that it is set to become the best-performing alternative broadband service for homes and businesses almost everywhere.

As low-band 5G roll-out has already begun, a 5G broadband connection will soon offer a genuinely viable alternative to traditional fixed-line broadband to an ever-growing number of properties across the UK.

Superfast - and then some

While low-band 5G broadband won't be able to deliver the 100 Mbps+ ultrafast speeds that urban 5G does, it should still provide performance around the 50 to 60 Mbps level - and it will do that in an ever-growing number of locations.

This means that low-band 5G will match or exceed the average performance of the superfast (30 Mbps+) landline broadband that's currently available to the majority of UK homes and businesses. And that’s why we’re calling it Superfast Plus.

Do you live in an urban location? We already offer ultrafast 5G broadband in cities and a growing number of major towns.
