Comparing home broadband in Chester
There’s a good selection of home broadband services on offer in central Chester.
The area is also enabled for fibre optic broadband using BT lines. This provides speeds up to around 65Mb, and as well as being sold by BT it is offered by many other ISPs so you’ve got a wide choice of pricing and features.
This is currently the fastest unlimited home broadband connection available as Virgin Media fibre is not installed in Chester. If you want serious speeds, fibre-to-the-premises connections are also available in some areas.
Other exchanges around Chester have more limited availability. The Christleton exchange has fibre optic internet, but the only LLU ADSL network is TalkTalk. while Great Mollington is not an LLU exchange but does now have fibre optic access from the BT Openreach network.

Comparing mobile broadband in Chester
Coverage across all four network operators - O2, Vodafone, EE, and Three - is very good in Chester. Central areas are blanketed by 3G signal and it extends to outlying areas including Blacon, Upton, Guilden Sutton, Christleton and Eccleston. As this is a populated part of the country coverage is plentiful in most directions, with the only major drop in connectivity occurring in western areas toward North Wales.
4G services are also available from all networks, both in the centre of Chester and surrounding locations, though at the outskirts you may find it only works outdoors. The latest 5G technology is also available, though coverage of this new service is limited.
For more about network coverage please read our comprehensive guide; connectivity is highly variable even in areas of strong signal. As well as using the official network tools you can also confirm signal in a particular area by checking it on another device such as a mobile phone.
