What is the difference between superfast and ultrafast broadband?

For Contracts 1 and 2 of the CSW Broadband Project, the UK government defined superfast broadband as 24Mbps or above. For contracts signed since January 2017 (including the CSW Project’s Contract 3) superfast was defined, as per EU requirements, as 30Mbps or above.

Ultrafast is defined as speeds of over 100Mbps. This is usually delivered using Fibre to the Premise (FTTP) technology (where speeds of up to 1000Mbps can be delivered) but is not yet available in all areas.

Even if you have an ultrafast connection, you will still have a wide choice of packages available so can choice options to suit your pocket.
