Cable Broadband

Broadband can be delivered via cable instead of via your phone line. Cable is available in mainly urban areas of the UK – if you live in a rural area it is very unlikely you will have access to broadband via cable.

There are two cable broadband providers in the UK – Virgin Media and Wight Cable (operating on the Isle of Wight). Virgin Media was recently formed from a merger of Virgin Net and the two main cable providers NTL and Telewest. Cable networks were only installed in the UK relatively recently (in the last 25 years).

Cable broadband download speeds can go up to 20 meg with the right package (ADSL Max only goes up to 8 meg).
