Why are we so far behind the times i have nothing but slow speed on our phone line we have disconnected the phones due to cold calling PPi crap but apparently according to the open reach website the other half of our street can place orders for fibre optic apparently our cabinet doesn't have enough lines in it to warrant the fibre optic investment is under review .....maybe if a letter was sent to each house hold just like the other junk mail we get you may raise more interest if you knew how many people really want fibre broadband.
Coventry’s tech history
Our favourite offbeat tech personality from Coventry has to be Delia Derbyshire. A pioneer of electronic music and composition, she worked at the BBC’s then brand new Radiophonic workshop in the 1960s – where she created the first fully electronic version of the Dr Who theme!
The city’s most famous technology son is probably Kevin ‘Captain Cyborg’ Warwick, one of the world’s leading cybernetic experts. Amongst a long list of achievements his Project Cyborg saw the world’s first purely electronic communication between two human nervous systems over the internet. Scary...
Coventry is also home to award-winning mobile app developer Gemixin, plus game developers including Full Fat (Sim City, Pirates, Harry Potter) and Freestyle Games’ FSG Studio in Leamington Spa (Nintendo’s Sing Party).
Comparing mobile broadband in Coventry
In the table above you’ll be able to compare prices on home broadband deals, not mobile ones. If you’re looking to buy a mobile broadband dongle, Wi-Fi unit or tablet deal you’ll need to head to our mobile broadband comparison section instead.
Before you buy any mobile broadband package though you must check coverage in your area (and in other locations where you'll be frequently using the service). Coventry has access to both 3G and 4G mobile broadband from all the network operators - Three, EE, O2 and Vodafone - but this does not mean every location will have sufficient signal. Click the network logos below to access the official coverage check tools and find out what mobile broadband speed you could get in Coventry.
