Superfast broadband for Basingstoke
To boost superfast broadband coverage across the borough, we have been working closely with the county council on Hampshire’s Superfast Broadband Programme. The aim of the Hampshire Superfast Broadband Programme is to extend coverage to at least 97.4 % of premises by the end of 2019.
The benefits of superfast broadband
Superfast broadband allows homes and businesses to benefit from download speeds of up to 80Mb and upload speeds of up to 20Mb. This means you can:
- download music tracks in less than five seconds
- game online in HD
- watch movies and sports events online in HD
- video conference easily with friends and family
What’s more, everyone can do want they want online at the same time.
Access to superfast broadband
Many homes and businesses in the borough can now take advantage of improved download speeds thanks to recent upgrades. To see if you’re part of the Hampshire Superfast Broadband Programme and find out whether you can enjoy the benefits, use the post code checker on the Hampshire Superfast Broadband website.
Estimated activation dates for ‘Commercial Rollout’ can often be delayed so to help check the status of your upgrade to superfast broadband you can use Openreach’s checking facility.
