Inverkip Fibre Broadband
It’s true, Fibre Optic Broadband is slowly and surely reaching the homes of Inverkip.
And no, you don’t have to be on the Main St to get it, many areas “further up the hill” including Langhouse Road, Swallow Brae etc, now receive it.
Don’t think that they have to dig up the road to install a fibre optic cable to your house to benefit ! – They simply connect you via the conventional phone cabling to the nearest fibre optic junction box.
OK, it’s true that because of this “technical compromise” that you ain’t gonna get the blistering 200mbps speeds that many users in central Greenock can see, but “Yours Truly” is very happy with his 40mbps “down speed” & 13mbps “up speed”, which is a gigantic improvement over the paltry 3mbps & 0.25mbps speeds previously seen !
Here are the results from today’s speedtest at Broadband Speed Checker.
Pretty good ehh ?
Some areas still don’t have it available, such as the houses up at Hill Farm., but don’t be dismayed if you are one of them, did you notice the recent roadworks at the top of Cullen Crescent ? – and the shiny new metal enclosure ! – Yip, the word “on the street” says that this is the latest installation of a fibre optic junction box, so sit tight, it’s coming your way very soon !
