• Network achieving download and upload speeds of 900Mbps
• 16x faster than the UK average download speed
• 125x faster than the UK average upload speed

toob’s network is now live in Southampton, delivering incredible 900Mbps speeds on both download and upload. This is 16x faster than the UK average speed on download and an amazing 125x faster on upload, based on the latest information from Ofcom (May 2019).

These impressive speeds mean that downloading the Game of Thrones Season 8 (9.5 GB), which would normally take over 20 minutes, will take less than 1.5 minute. Whilst saving 100 of your holiday pictures to iCloud (1 GB), which would normally take 18 minutes, will take less than 10 seconds.

As well as being able to download the latest Fortnite update in 80 seconds (9 GB) or FIFA 20 in 6 minutes (40 GB), the low latency that comes with a full fibre service will give any gamer an edge online.

toob’s network will deliver a 100% full fibre connection all the way to homes and businesses, giving customers reliable and consistent broadband, no matter the number of users or the time of day.

Residents and businesses should register their interest at toob.co.uk to ensure they are kept up to date with toob’s rollout.

Nick Parbutt, CEO of toob, said “This is another great step in bringing the benefits of full fibre connectivity to Southampton. It is fantastic to see our network working and delivering the speeds and performance that we expect. We are very excited about the next steps as we start to deploy the network and start connecting customers to toob’s hyperspeed broadband.”

Councillor Christopher Hammond, Leader of Southampton City Council, said “toob’s making fantastic progress in rolling out their network. The work will benefit Southampton’s businesses and residents for years to come, helping the city to thrive in a digital age. We’re committed to tech investment and our digital economy is booming because of this.”
