Vodafone Gigafast Broadband provides speeds 150x UK average

Stirling is set to be the UK’s first Gigabit City. The Stirling Gigabit City Project aims to have completed its project by mid-2020 and has completed more than half of its scheduled programme so far.

The project will introduce Vodafone Gigafast Broadband packages to the city with customers able to choose between three separate packages that begin at £28 per month. Internet speeds will reach up to 900Mbps, 150 times faster than the average UK broadband service.

Vodafone UK director of digital and commercial operations Neil Blagden said: “At speeds of up to 900Mbps, Vodafone Gigafast Broadband is ideal for hi-tech businesses, connected classrooms and buffer-free households. It will boost the local economy and improve people’s lives. Every family member or employee can get online at the same time, with no delays. We look forward to bringing the service to more people across the city.”

Stirling forms part of CityFibre’s £2.5 billion Gigabit City investment programme to bring full fibre to five million homes and businesses by 2025. The full fibre network rollout began in November 2018 and has now reached Cambusbarron, Broomridge, Bannockburn , Braehead and Raploch.
