Faster Broadband for Stonham Parva

fibreBetter Broadband for Suffolk in conjunction with Openreach has now provided a Broadband upgrade for some parts of Stonham Parva.

The existing service is delivered over copper from a cabinet at our local exchange (near the Tap Junction) and is known as Fibre To The Cabinet (FTTC) which provides up to 80 MBs (megabits per second) but only if you are close to the exchange. As you go further away this reduces so if you live in Norwich Road, Church Lane or Lambeth Way this reduces to circa 50 to 15 MBs depending on distance from exchange.

The upgrade provided a direct fibre service into your house which significantly increase the available speeds to 300 MBs and is referred to a as Fibre To The Premise (FTTP) and is not affected by distance.

You can check if its availability at your address using the following link. You are looking to see if your address support FTTP Technology.
