Rural Broadband FAQs

Despite some improvement over recent years in rural broadband for many village locations in the UK, those living in smaller villages or more isolated residences are still suffering with speed issues. This is because broadband slows down the further you are from the nearest cabinet or exchange. Also, it is partly due to infrastructure because the roll-out of fibre optic cable has been slower in rural areas than urban ones. There are a few technologies that can experience slower speeds when it comes to countryside internet, these are:

  •       ADSL broadband – this is where the signal is sent over copper phone lines. The benefits of ADSL are it is relatively cheap and most rural properties already have an existing phone line. If you are somewhere with a good connection you will typically be getting up to 17Mbps (the average is around 10-11Mbps) on ADSL, but if you live in a rural area and are particularly remote the speeds can be very slow. Also, it is vulnerable to contention as it will slow down significantly if it has too many users on at once.

 

  •       Mobile broadband – this is the wireless internet signal you get via your mobile phone or any other device containing a SIM. In rural locations mobile data signals can be weak or non-existent and coverage will depend entirely on the mobile network signal. However, it can be a useful and faster alternative if you are struggling with poor broadband speeds.

 

If you are experiencing poor connection and speeds it is important to consider your options including changing rural broadband providers. A specialist provider that knows how to make a significant difference to the quality of broadband in rural communities will be more beneficial than sticking with a provider who isn’t delivering on the promised service.

Satellite broadband

Satellite broadband is a good option to avoid the need for a cable connection, as the connection is supplied through a satellite dish. This is great for rural homes as the dish simply needs to be facing the right direction meaning you can get a decent connection from places you usually wouldn’t through a cable. However, if your home doesn’t already have a satellite dish installed, the cost of installation can be quite high. You’ll likely find that performance is not as strong as a fibre or cable connection, but it is beneficial to those living in an area where cabling is a problem.

Wireless broadband vs. wired broadband

The majority of UK home internet connections run off a wireless broadband router, which lets you access the internet from anywhere in your home. This is definitely the most convenient option and speeds can be impressively fast. However, if you live in a remote location your connection may suffer, possibly because you live far from the fibre cabinet or you are on an ADSL connection and have a number of users in your home.

If you are struggling with speeds due to being in a rural area, it might be worth considering a wired connection through an ethernet cable. Even though this is less convenient than wireless as you are stuck being tethered to your router to stay connected, it does offer the most consistent performance.

Cable broadband

Cable broadband is supplied by providers who work outside of the Openreach network, using their own network of cables to support your connection. It is most similar to a fibre to the premises (FTTP) connection, connecting your home to the fibre street cabinet over specific cables which are much quicker than traditional phone lines used for an ADSL or fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) connection.

Fibre broadband

Fibre-optic broadband is divided into two categories, the most common being the fibre to the cabinet (FFTC) connection. This is where the fibre-optic cables carry a quick connection to your street cabinet before the signal is carried to your home across traditional copper phone lines. The drop in speed is largely due to the distance between the street cabinet and your home. This is because the copper phone line can’t transmit the data at the same speeds as the fibre cabling, the effect is worse the further the length of the line. As a result, rural areas are the worst affected as homes are usually far from the cabinet.

A fibre to the premises (FTTP) connection is not impacted by this, as the fibre cabling is installed directly into the home, so there won’t be a drop in performance through the line. However, FTTP connections are much less common in the UK and even less so in rural areas.

Community broadband

There are community broadband schemes available that can work well to deliver the fastest connections to some of the most remote communities. However, you will need to gather a group of people together to make it cost effective. Also, there could be funding offered in your area for setting up a community broadband project. Another possible option is to assemble together to pay for a company to install fibre broadband to give all households involved the best possible speeds.

In terms of rural broadband options there isn’t necessarily a “best” choice because too much depends on your location, the geography, your distance to a local telephone exchange and what services are offered in your region. For example, in locations with good mobile phone signal, mobile broadband is likely to be cheaper and easier to set up than other options like satellite. Whereas, if you have the option for FFTC, FTTP or FWA it could be worthwhile to explore those in order to overcome the data caps that come with mobile contracts. We will offer the broadband option that will be most beneficial to your area and give you the fastest speeds.
