Everyone at Cuckoo is on the same speed contract, but there are four main reasons why speeds can vary between postcodes:

  1. Your home data usage - for example, video streaming eats up a lot of capacity
  2. Your home network set up - for example, effective placement of your router can aid speeds
  3. Our wider network usage - latest iOS or game releases can really impact download speeds across the network
  4. Our wider network set up - if your home is quite far from the green cabinet (called a DSLAM or PCP cabinet) on your street, your speeds may be slower
