Superfast broadband (greater than 24MB per second download speed) arrived in the Grantchester broadband cabinet on 24-Jun-14 and a number of Internet Service Providers are now offering download speeds of 70MB per second or more. Broadband is currently available via ADSL which requires renting a phone line from British Telecom then buying a broadband service from them or another provider. Details of broadband providers to Grantchester can be found by inputting your postcode here. It is also possible to pay for installation of a fibre connection between the cabinet and your home which could provide speeds of 300MB per second but this is expensive to install and incurs higher service charges.
