It's faster and more reliable
A simple software upgrade means VDSL provides a better broadband connection than ADSL. New technology connected at your nearest telecommunications cabinet in your street makes VDSL faster than ADSL, and gives you a more consistent experience online than other basic broadband options.
Upgrading is easy
Just call your broadband provider and ask to upgrade to VDSL which is often a similar price to basic broadband options. They’ll explain your plan and will send you a new VDSL modem. It should then be as simple as plugging it in and enjoying your new broadband connection.
Less buffering means you can do more
Unlike basic broadband VDSL allows for a range of online activities like streaming high definition TV, video calling, or uploading photos, without disruption. You may want to consider an unlimited plan which gives you the freedom to do more without fear of bill shock should you go over your data cap.
