Comparing home broadband in Cambridge
Cambridge has access to a wide variety of broadband services from major and minor providers.
Fibre optic broadband using the Openreach network and delivered over a standard telephone line is available up to an average of approximately 65Mb from ISPs such as Sky, TalkTalk, EE and BT itself. And there's also the option of fibre up to 630Mb using the Virgin Media network.
If you want a broadband and TV package you can choose from Sky, Virgin, TalkTalk and BT, but remember that without a high-speed unlimited broadband connection streaming HD video may not work very well.

Comparing mobile broadband in Cambridge
All four mobile network operators report very good coverage of central Cambridge and much of the surrounding area too.
Three, EE, O2, and Vodafone all provide 4G signal in at least the central locations, with only some outlying patches which may struggle when indoors. Coverage extends out to areas such as Trumpington, Newmarket and Huntingdon. There is also a growing level of 5G connectivity in Cambridge from all four networks,, although it is still quite new so coverage remains somewhat limited in comparison.
You should always check coverage in your area before purchasing a mobile service. As well as the network’s own coverage check tools (which you can access by clicking the logos below) ask friends and family for their experiences, the tools are not guaranteed and there can easily be dead spots even within well-served locations.
