What kind of broadband is ‘up to 52Mbps’?

‘Up to 52Mbps’ broadband is a fast fibre connection but one that is limited by the ISP that provides it.

A broadband connection that is ‘up to 52Mbps’ is actually a line that can go ‘up to 76Mbps’ and uses exactly the same standards and technology.

The only difference is that the maximum speed is artificially limited by the ISP to a slower 52Mbps speed.

BT and Sky are the only ISPs that offers broadband speed ‘up to 52Mbps’.

The download speed of some connections may be limited to provide a faster upload speed instead.

High upload speeds are ideal for people who publish a lot of videos, images or files to the internet, but are not necessary for typical internet use.
