Virgin Media and BT continue to roll out maximum 1 Gbps broadband speeds across the UK with this service capable of streaming a FULL HD movie to TV in around 40 seconds. This can be impressive, especially when compared to the average UK broadband connection with those connected to record speeds having to wait more than 10 minutes to download and watch the same movie.
Although some BT and Virgin Media customers are already enjoying these extremely fast downloads, it appears that there is now something faster than a lesser known competitor.
Community Fiber has just announced the launch of a service that will provide customers with incredible speeds of up to 3 Gbps.
At this fast rate – which is 46 times faster than the UK average – it would take just 11 seconds to download a blockbuster Hollywood movie in UHD quality.
Community Fiber’s new 3Gfast broadband package allows a multi-gigabit device to reach those funny speeds, as well as enabling multiple devices to reach 1Gbps speeds simultaneously, without compromising on speed and reliability.

This new technology should help consumers prepare for the future as homes fill with more connected devices and the next generation of 8K TVs, PlayStation and Xbox are all expected to put broadband under more pressure.
Speaking of the new technology, Graeme Oxby, CEO of Community Fiber, said: “We are pleased to demonstrate the advantage of full fiber networks in offering much faster broadband speeds. We launched 3 gigabit home broadband today and expect to go further in the future. We believe multi-gigabit speed will be a fundamental need for homes and businesses, which is proving vital to the UK’s global competitiveness.

Everything is impressive but there is one thing that you should be aware of. Community Fiber is currently only available in certain parts of London and the 3-Gigafast package is also very expensive leaving you with a bill of £ 99 per month.
If that cost doesn’t stop you, the company says the 3-Gigafast package is available in 12 London regions including Barnet, Brent, City of London, Croydon, Lewisham, Newham, Richmond upon Thames, Southwark, Sutton, Tower Hamlets, Wandsworth, and Westminster. . Community Fiber will continue to spread to more neighborhoods across London in the near future.
