Around 40% of Dorset premises can now access full fibre broadband and this number will continue to grow.

If your property is served by full fibre broadband it will give you access to some of the fastest internet speeds.

This technology is sometimes called fibre to the premises (FTTP) and brings a cable directly from the telephone exchange into your home or business. 

What broadband speeds you'll be able to get

Because the connection is 100% fibre you will be able to get download speeds of up to 300mbps (megabits per second) today, and the technology is capable of speeds of up to 1,000mbps. 

You can order the speeds you need, whether that’s for general browsing, email, streaming, TV making video calls or online gaming. You pay for the speed you order.
