Broadband deals in Newcastle upon Tyne
Central Newcastle and the surrounding exchanges have been enabled for superfast fibre broadband. You have plenty of choice when it comes to providers!
For broadband on a budget, there’s ADSL using the standard telephone line. However, if speed's important to you, Newcastle has the choice of fibre optic internet using either Openreach (the regular BT telephone line) or Virgin Media fibre network.
Virgin Media offers the fastest service at 1Gb, but coverage can be more limited, and some homes may not have been hooked up with cable. Fibre optic broadband over the phone reaches speeds of up to 67Mb and is generally available to more homes.
