The life of Coventry’s CV1-CV6 residents could become a whole lot easier – and faster, thanks to a multi-million pound investment that will help to destroy the digital divide in the city.
Gigabit Networks’ digital revolution in Coventry promises to deliver lightning-fast internet speeds, thanks to CityFibre’s massive £70 million infrastructure investment.
The first to benefit will be residents within CV1, CV2, CV3, CV5 and CV6 postcodes who can sign up from today and be the first to benefit from the ultrafast, reliable, full fibre, gigabit-speed broadband – which is up to 20x faster than the speeds many homes in Coventry are currently receiving.
David Yates of Gigabit Networks, which is based in the Midlands, said: “Our partnering with CityFibre means we are capable of truly bridging the digital divide across the Midlands.
“In a switched-on world that is ever-evolving and upgrading, it makes sense to future-proof your home’s capabilities. Gigabit Networks is dedicated to providing households with a virtually limitless capacity when it comes to streaming video, online gaming, immersive media and VR, working from home, cloud-based storage and support for all the family to be online.
“The people of Coventry, and the Midlands as a whole, deserve to be on an equal footing with other areas of the country when it comes to the internet services available to them. Joining the CityFibre ultrafast network means we can help solve this digital divide, bringing greater connectivity and opportunities for people across the city.”
Gigabit Networks’ PureFibre connections always use 100% fibre-optic lines directly to the building, with none of the copper wiring of traditional broadband services to slow things down. Each Fibre connection is exclusive to your property and capable of delivering at least 1 Gigabit per second speeds both ways – this is more than 20x faster than normal broadband.
Since the pandemic, the average household has 10.3x internet-enabled devices* competing for precious bandwidth, putting a strain on household broadband – and relationships. In March 2021, the median average download speed of UK home broadband connections was a mere 50.4 Mbit/s.** In practise, upgrading Gigabit speeds allow customers to download a full-length HD movie in 12 seconds, or get their hands on Call of Duty: Warzone in less than 5 minutes.
Not only is minimum internet speed guaranteed, but so is affordable pricing and high-level customer service. Introductory offers mean residents in Coventry can switch to the Gigabit Networks’ service for as little as £49 per month. Their dedicated UK-based service team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help answer queries.
