The Genie guide to broadband in Glasgow
All the main Glasgow telephone exchanges are now enabled for superfast broadband via the Openreach, CityFibre and Virgin Media networks, giving many Glasgow residents access to broadband speeds up to an average 1Gb.
But it's important to check coverage for yourself. Even if your exchange has a particular service, it doesn't guarantee that it's available to your home. When comparing broadband deals, search using your postcode to see what's available.
With such hot competition between providers for broadband customers, there’s never been a better time to compare packages. Whether you’re looking for a cheap basic deal or an unlimited, all-inclusive broadband and TV deal, there are new special offers hitting the site every month.
