Under this partnership, residents across Reading, Bracknell, Maidenhead, and Slough can now register their interest with toob, and take advantage of speeds up to 900 Mbps, increasing broadband accessibility and digital inclusion in the region.

As the cost of living crisis continues, prices are rising faster than wages with many people facing difficult choices around affordability. As a result, almost a million people have switched off their broadband.

toob believe that fast broadband should be available for all and not just the few, so despite the difficult economic climate, toob’s affordable full-fibre broadband offering could be a digital lifeline for many in this situation.

toob also has a strict no in-contract price rise policy, which means its customers won’t be in for any nasty surprises.
