Leicester-based ISP offers Local Residents New, Gigabit-Speed Full Fibre Internet Service

After successfully launching its digital revolution in neighbouring cities Coventry, Derby and Wolverhampton, Gigabit Networks’ has its sights set on its hometown of Leicester, promising to deliver lightning-fast internet speeds thanks to a massive £70million infrastructure investment from CityFibre.

Residents in the LE1, LE2, LE3, LE4, LE5 and LE7 postcodes will be the first to benefit from the ultrafast, dependable, full-fibre, Gigabit-speed internet, which is up to 20x quicker than the average speed in the UK.

Recently voted best Internet Service Provider (ISP) in the Midlands, Gigabit Networks is on a mission to empower the Midlands with faster internet connectivity. The company, which is based in Leicester, has partnered with CityFibre to improve local fibre infrastructure to deliver faster internet speeds and greater reliability.

David Yates of Gigabit Networks said: 

“Our partnering with CityFibre means we are capable of truly transforming the online experience for the people of Leicester.

“In a switched-on world that is ever-evolving and upgrading, it makes sense to future-proof your home’s capabilities. Gigabit Networks service will provide households with a virtually limitless capacity when it comes to streaming videos, online gaming, working from home, cloud-based storage, and support for everyone in the family to be online at the same time.

“Leicester is our home town, and we are incredibly excited to be able to offer our award-winning service to residents and businesses on our doorstep.”

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 up to 930 Megabits per second speeds both ways – more than 20x faster than normal broadband.

Recent research has suggested that by 2023, the average UK household will have 50 smart devices online and 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. Houses in LE1, LE2, LE3, LE4, LE5 and LE7 can get started today at
