The next-generation of broadband has arrived at DataKom. Openreach is upgrading the UK’s broadband network from superfast (anything above 24Mbps) to Ultrafast (speeds up to 330Mbps) helping businesses to thrive and compete in the marketplace.

Where can I get it?

G.fast has been rolled out in 46 locations across the UK as part of Openreach’s pilot deployment phase including Swansea, Bristol and Somerset - analysing scalability, exploring different technical scenarios and testing speeds which can be delivered.
