Get fastest UK broadband at half the cost of Virgin Media thanks to Community Fibre deal

189

Beaming blisteringly quick downloads into your home just got a whole lot cheaper. That’s all thanks to a new deal from UK Internet Service Provider Community Fibre which is offering its speedy 1,000Mbps service for just £30 per month. To put that price into some perspective, Virgin Media’s Gig1 option – which also offers speeds of around 1,000Mbps – currently costs £62 per month. That cost makes Gig1 over twice the price of Community Fibre.

Anyone signing up to 1,000Mbps speeds will be able whizz a full HD movie to their TV in under 40 seconds – that’s around 13 times faster than the current UK average. Along with those rapid downloads, Community Fibre customers also get a unlimited downloads and access to a Wi-Fi 6 router which offer faster and more reliable speeds.

There’s also free installation and no upfront fee to pay. Of course, like most things in life, there is a catch.

Community Fibre is currently only available in around one million homes which is significantly less than the 15 million properties that can get Virgin’s Gig1 service.

Not everyone needs a blisteringly quick internet connection so it’s worth checking your needs before signing up for a long contract. For example, a standard 50Mbps connection should be just fine if you simply browse the web and send a few emails. However, start downloading movies and PS5 games and faster speeds become much more vital. It’s also important to boost your connection if you have a busy house that’s full of people using the internet at the same time as the more devices online, the slower things can get.

Here’s how long it takes to download a full HD movie using different speeds:

Broadband speed • 60Mbps – Download time • 12 minutes

Broadband speed • 100Mbps – Download time • 6 minutes

Broadband speed • 300Mbps – Download time • 2 minutes

Broadband speed • 300Mbps – Download time • 1 minute

Broadband speed • 1Gbps – Download time • 30 seconds
