What is Lightstream?

Ultrafast broadband from KCOM that uses the latest technology made from glass fibre rather than copper. This gives a much faster and more reliable internet connection. It is also future-proof technology, meaning that when everybody starts to do more things online like watching TV, making video calls, working, gaming and more, screens won't freeze, jump or stop like they might have done before.

  • Faster speeds.

    Copper wire was never designed to carry high-speed data in the same way as the new fibre cable. Put simply, fibre is up to 25x faster than standard broadband.

  • More reliable.

    Things like bad weather or lots of people on the internet at the same time might mean your current service drops out a lot. With fibre, speed and connection isn’t affected.

  • Future-proofing.

    As things like Smart TVs, tablets and mobiles improve, they’ll depend more and more on a strong, fast and stable connection. Going ultrafast means you’ll always be able to enjoy the things you love without the risk of buffering.
