Compare broadband in Leeds
As one of the biggest cities in the UK, Leeds has excellent broadband connectivity. That means residents have plenty of choice when it comes to different broadband packages and providers. Whether you’re after a simple entry-level fibre plan or gigabit-ready full fibre broadband, you’ll be able to 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.
Luckily, Leeds has widespread coverage with Openreach’s full fibre network. In fact, it was one of the first UK cities to receive Openreach’s FTTP services back in 2018 – meaning there’s a very high chance that you’ll be able to get top speeds.
Leeds is also well-served by Virgin Media’s own ultrafast cable network, which provides the fastest widely available broadband on the market.
