High-Speed Fibre Broadband (with downstream speed of up to around 75Mbps) finally arrived in Little Wolford last year with the installation of Cabinet 3 in the village, with a fibre link to Long Compton BT exchange.
Subscriber connections to this cabinet make use of existing copper telephone cables (“FTTC”, or “Fibre-To-The-Cabinet”), so speed will depend upon line quality and distance from the cabinet.
Broadband speed will not automatically increase: a new "fibre" contract with an Internet Service Provider is required, but will typically be significantly cheaper than the equivalent-speed wireless service currently provided by Voneus (formerly SugarNet).
Note that, whilst BT Wholesale remains the sole provider of telephone and broadband services to Long Compton exchange, consumer services are available from many resellers, including PlusNet, Zen, Vodafone, EE, TalkTalk, Sky, Origin, John Lewis, Post Office and SSE, as well as from BT. Price comparison and utility switching sites, such as Uswitch or Broadband Choices, are helpful in identifying the best deals.
Unfortunately, some Little Wolford properties situated outwith the village are currently unable to benefit from the fibre upgrade. To check a property’s broadband status, click here.
