Comparing home broadband in Stoke-on-Trent
Additionally, there’s the choice of fibre optic from the BT or Virgin Media networks. Fibre optic services using BT’s network provide an unlimited connection averaging up to 65Mb download and 20Mb upload, a significant step up from ADSL. Virgin Media fibre broadband goes even faster - presently up to 1Gb!
Full Fibre is also available at many exchanges across Stoke, however this does not mean it will be available to every address.
But remember that even when an exchange is enabled for a service this does not mean that it will be available to all homes.

Comparing mobile broadband in Stoke-on-Trent
All the four network operators - EE, Three, O2 and Vodafone - provide strong signal across Stoke-on-Trent. 4G is widely available on every network in both central areas and the outskirts, including locations such as Norton Green, Wolstanton, Kidsgrove, Longton and Werrington.
5G mobile broadband is also on offer from MOST networks, however, coverage is not yet as extensive as 4G so you may find signal becomes patchy further from the central areas.
Before buying any mobile internet package it is crucial to check the network coverage. Aside from finding out whether there’s any signal at all you want to find out if it’s strong enough, as a weak connection will be significantly slower; lookout for areas where the coverage is ‘outdoor only’.
