KCOM Lightstream: fibre all the way to the home (full fibre)
Full fibre offers average download speeds of 30, 100, 300, 500 and 900Mbps depending on package selected
Other providers: fibre only to the cabinet (FTTC)
FTTC network offers average download speeds of 46.8Mbps

Network average speeds
Network average speeds: The network average speed is the download speed (throughput) that 50% of our residential customers can expect to get during "peak time" (8pm-10pm). This is the overall network average and not what you should expect to see at your address. The speed is derived from Ofcom's UK broadband performance report (Nov 2020) and data from speed tests using test lines that monitor our network performance. These speed tests are carried out using an independent internet measurement standard that assesses the performance of our actual broadband packages, which is undertaken by Samknows.

Award-winning home broadband
We've also got a few awards under our belt. Among others, we're proud to have won the European Broadband Awards - Quality and Affordability of Services award and ISPA’s Best Consumer Service Provider.
