Back to Get Connected

Milton Keynes is the first Gigabit City in the UK providing access to next-generation internet connections for local businesses and homes. Along with excellent mobile phone coverage, this makes MK one of the easiest and most obvious places to adopt flexible and agile working practices, hold meetings and conferences or locate a business.

Your Local Broadband

Our lives are more connected every day.  In the home, more and more gadgets and appliances work best with a good internet connection.  When working from home a good connection can unlock innovative solutions and more flexible working practices.  With superfast broadband, everyone within the home is able to do what they want online – all at the same time – without any annoying delays.

The majority of Milton Keynes is now able to benefit from superfast broadband. Find out whether superfast broadband is available in your area yet. Find out more about the 1000mbps city-wide fibre roll-out on the CityFibre website.

Superfast Broadband

Superfast broadband is defined as having a download speed greater than 24 Megabits per second (Mbps). A majority of the city and some other areas of the borough are already covered by Superfast broadband with further upgrades to be made as part of the overall Broadband Development UK programme. The rest of the borough is covered by basic 2Mbps speeds.

You can check your current broadband speed using websites such as speedtest.net. The MKC planning team have put together some FAQs for broadband in MK.

Mobile phone coverage – 3G and 4G

Mobile phone signal across the city is adequate on most networks with Central Milton Keynes having better coverage than outer and rural areas. Most of the network providers (EE, 3, O2, Vodafone etc) have a signal checker available on their website providing signal strength information for 2G/3G and 4G for their customers.

For an independent assessment of indoor and outdoor mobile phone signal, the Which website has an interactive map displaying the OpenSignal app data which is based on billions of real-world measurements.
