The labs.thinkbroadband.com/local site provides broadband coverage statistics, availability checker, maps and additionally speeds as recorded by the public and is produced by thinkbroadband.
Technology Split figures are based on the proportions of speed tests seen using the various technologies over the period of a quarter. The figures while not being absolute will provide a good idea of the relative popularity of different options in an area, e.g. an area with high cable take-up is likely to have a higher speed average. It also helps to highlight areas where wireless and satellite broadband is popular.
Speed test results are based on analysis of the tests carried out by the public using speed test web apps that we operate e.g. www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest which are analysed every month for postcodes, and quarterly to give the results for the councils and constituences across the UK.
Where Fibre is talked about this refers to fibre based broadband which encompasses VDSL2, FTTC, FTTN, G.fast, cable broadband, FTTH and FTTB.
Superfast broadband coverage figures is a subset of the fibre based figures as it adds a speed qualifer of 24 Mbps or 30 Mbps.
Coverage figures are updated weekly on a Saturday and also on the 1st and 7th of each month.
Historical plots show how coverage is changing over time and may go down sometimes as new build premises are integrated into the checker.
Coverage data presented on this page is generated by an analysis of the services available to premises within the area described.

Speed test results are based on the analysis of speed tests people have carried out in the last 180 days for the area around a postcode. The size of the area is indicated and varies based on the density of speed tests carried out in an area.
For areas that have seen a rapid rise in faster broadband availability the speed test results will lag because the actual speed tests rely on people having ordered and having the service installed and carrying out a test.
For national, regional, local authority and constituency speed test results within the specific area from the previous quarter are used.
If an area has availability of superfast or FTTP services but speed tests do not show the full speed possible it may be people opting for a slower product, or the fast service has only recently arrived.
Postcode look ups for some fixed wireless services are based on analysis of geographic areas supplied by providers and service cannot be guaranteed until a site survey has been carried out in many cases.
The UK has two definitions of superfast, our default is to show coverage at a speed of 30 Mbps or faster. The coverage level will improve when the lower 24 Mbps (as defined by many broadband projects) and is generally shown in the foot notes.
We do our best to ensure the information is accurate and up to date, but if you spot an area email us with details [email protected]
If you wish to make commercial use of the broadband checker data which is independent of Ofcom and others get in touch.
Coverage analysis currently includes the obvious major operators such as Openreach, Virgin Media, Hyperoptic, CityFibre residential and KC. There are also over 40 other FTTP networks featured in the data.
Gigabit figures are a combination of FTTP and DOCSIS 3.1
Overlapping networks are taken into account e.g. at the end of January 2021 1.4% of UK premises had the option of two physical FTTP networks.

While our maps and checker covers a number of fixed wireless networks, only Airband feature as counting towards the over 24 Mbps superfast target.
