Sheffield getting 100 Mbps broadband

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

Sheffield is the next place to benefit from a broadband service that uses the existing sewer network to feed cables straight to the customer’s home.

This superfast broadband service has been pioneered by H2O (i3 Group) and has been successfully deployed in Bournemouth and Dundee.

With BT just starting trials on its superfast broadband service, the H2O service is being quietly deployed in different areas.

With regards to speed, this is a full fibre to the home (FTTH) service that offers customers speeds of up to 100 Mbps, whereas the BT service offers an up to 40 Mbps service.

The Sheffield project will only cover an area within a fifteen kilometre ring and some new apartment developments that already have an existing fibre network installed.
