Alternative UK ISP Trooli Launches 2Gbps Broadband Package

Alternative network operator Trooli, which was last year acquired by Agnar UK Infrastructure (here) and has so far extended their gigabit-capable full fibre (FTTP) network to cover 334,000 premises (RFS) across England and Scotland (here), has become the latest ISP to launch a 2Gbps (multi-gigabit) speed package.

Until recently, the fastest package listed on the main page of Trooli’s website was still their 900Mbps (symmetric speed) tier for £39.99 per month on a 24-month term, which includes a “free” router + installation and a promise of “no in-contract price rises“.

NOTE: Trooli’s network is mostly found in towns and large villages across parts of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Dorset, East Sussex, Hampshire, Kent, Norfolk, Suffolk, West Sussex and Wiltshire in England. As well as parts of North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire and Fife in Scotland (formerly Axione UK).

However, one of our readers (credits to Blake of Leaf Networks) recently spotted that they’ve added a 2Gbps (symmetric) package for just £49.99 per month, which seems to be a common top speed for a lot of other Altnet ISPs to adopt. The provider doesn’t appear to have sent out a widely distributed press release about this, but so far as we can tell the package was officially launched a few weeks ago during early May 2024.

Trooli’s Website Statement on 2Gbps

You’re probably used to seeing broadband packages categorised by speed, most commonly in the units of Gbps (Gigabits per second) or Mbps (Megabits per second). But do you know what this actually means? Both units explain the number of ‘bits’, small units of data, that can be transferred per second. Gbps means a billion bits per second, whilst Mbps means a million bits per second.

In 2023 the average speed of broadband in the UK was 0.073Gbps (73.21Mbps) but this is simply not enough for households that want to work, stream, browse, or game without interruption. Luckily, 2Gbps broadband (2000Mbps) is now available and is more than 27 times faster than the average UK broadband speed, allowing you to do more with your Wi-Fi, without frustrating buffering and freezing.
