Compare broadband in Glasgow
Living in a big city like Glasgow, you’ve got plenty of choice when it comes to broadband packages. Glasgow has a wide range of packages and providers available – so, whether you’re looking for affordable entry-level fibre broadband or a top-of-the-range package, you can shop around for a deal that suits you best.
The most widely available is fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) broadband, which averages speeds around 36-68Mbps. If you’re lucky to be living at an address with access to fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband, you can get ultrafast speeds ranging anywhere between 100Mbps to over 1,000Mbps (1Gbps). Our page on FTTP vs FTTC broadband goes through everything in more detail.
As Glasgow is a big city, many postcodes will be covered by either Openreach’s full fibre infrastructure, or Virgin Media’s ultrafast cable network – meaning you’ll likely have access to these top speeds.

However, if you can’t get it at your address, you should still be able to get fibre broadband with any provider that uses BT’s Openreach network. This includes the likes of Sky, EE, Plusnet, TalkTalk, NOW, Vodafone, and BT.
