    Default Acorn Broadband

    Does anyone in Thurso use Acorn Broadband, I cannot get decent speeds with usual broadband providers as I'm still on copper wiring for the foreseeable future! Acorn offer better speeds and was wondering if anyone used them?

    they wont have any magical router that can do any better than what you have already.
    use https://www.broadbandcheck.co.uk/thurso with your postcode

    give acorn a ring. i was chatting to their installer today and he says they might well be able to beat that speed as they have several new fibre linked wireless hubs now in that area.

    Thanks for getting back to me, i'm not getting notified when i'm getting a response?
    The BB checker is showing standard BB only, download as 25mb and upload as 1mb.
    I did call Acorn and they can do d/l 30mb and u/l 15mb, someone going to come round and check it for me.
