Superfast broadband update

Cabinet Earlswood 11 has been upgraded, meaning that many properties connected to it can now order the improved service.

What should residents do now?

  1. Check their upgrade status by entering their landline/address into the BT Broadband Availability Checker. Our How to use the BT Broadband Availability Checker webpage will help them make sense of the results.
  2. Sign up with an Internet Service Provider for superfast services. Websites like, Uswitch and Broadband Genie can give free, impartial advice on cheap broadband deals and provide information on which packages might be best for specific needs.

What are the benefits of having faster and superfast broadband?

Having access to superfast broadband allows you to:

  • Browse the web faster
  • Stream HD films, TV shows, games and videos without buffering slowing you down
  • Talk face-to-face with friends and family using Skype, FaceTime or similar software
  • Compete with other businesses in the increasingly competitive global marketplace
  • Reduce workplace costs through remote working / working from home

Please Note: Even though this cabinet has been upgraded, not every property connected to it is guaranteed to achieve superfast speeds due to some properties’ distances from the cabinet and/or the quality of their copper connections.
