Faster Broadband

Good news - superfast broadband is now available in some parts of Farnborough! Cabinet Farnborough 4 has been upgraded, meaning that many properties connected to it can now order the improved service. Please note that some lines that were previously connected directly to the exchange have now been routed through this cabinet so will now also be able to order faster broadband.

 What should I do now?

  1. Check that your property is connected to this cabinet and can get superfast speeds by going to www.dslchecker.bt.com and entering your landline number
  2. Sign up with an Internet Service Provider for superfast services. Remember to check different providers for the best rates to meet your needs. Independent reviewers such as MoneySavingExpert.com or Broadband Genie can provide information on cheap broadband deals.

What are the benefits?

Having access to superfast broadband not only lets you browse the web faster but helps businesses stay competitive and allows individuals, families, and communities to make use of opportunities that wouldn’t otherwise be possible:
• Choose the Internet Service Provider you want- the CSW Broadband project ensures that you are not limited in your choice of suppliers
• Get online instantly with no slow dial-up connections
• Talk face-to-face with friends and family using Skype or other software
• Stream HD films, TV shows and videos without buffering slowing you down
• Quickly and easily share your photos with friends and family

Please note: Even though this cabinet has been upgraded, not every property connected to it is guaranteed to achieve superfast speeds due to some properties’ distances from the cabinet and/or quality of copper connections.
