A company called Gigaclear has announced that it will start trialing 5GBPS broadband in the UK, the service will be made available to around 10,000 homes in the UK during the trial.
There is just one catch, this new super fast broadband is considerably more expensive that standard broadband.
Available to customers from early 2016 through Gigaclear’s existing fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) network, the ultrafast service significantly reduces the time taken to upload and download large files. For example, to download a 1,500MB video can take up to eight minutes on an average UK broadband service. This improves to two minutes on Gigaclear’s 100Mbps service, but will take between just four and six seconds with the new 5Gbps package.
For personal customers the cost for the 5GBPS broadband is £399 a month, for business customers the cost is £1,500 per month.
