6G Internet Review

The 6G wireless broadband packages are excellent value and get the thumbs up from us.
The reliability of the connection, coupled with probably the best upload speeds in the residential ISP world and low latency make the 6G broadband package ideal for people who use their internet for streaming and gaming.
Due to unique way in which 6G is delivered, peak time congestion is not evident. The potential cons may come when the 6G network gets more subscribers and the possible effects on the transmitters during extreme weather.
That said, we have had some pretty miserable weather conditions around here lately and the 6G service has been very stable. The installation team took less than an hour and the service was up straight away. We have the service for just over 6 months, so far so good.
If you’re looking for broadband that’s fast, low latency, doesn’t suffer at peak times and is value for money we would certainly recommend 6G Broadband.
6G is a Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP for short). As the name suggests 6G provides a range of broadband products using their own wireless "Air Fibre" broadband network.
It is difficult to compare 6G with the more traditional Internet service providers as they do not use the BT Openreach network to deliver their service. 6G internet services are delivered through Wireless network connectivity so there is no reliance on underground cabling or flaky exchanges.
Most noticeably, with 6G there is no need for a telephone line for the broadband to run on which is an instant saving on of £17-£19 per month on line rental.
Without its reliance on the copper based BT Openreach network 6G offers very low latency (the time taken for data packets to be received or leave) which has huge benefits:
- The media streaming experience with 6G is far more superior. The risk of buffering is greatly reduced.
- The low latency is ideal for online gaming. The reduced lag makes for a fantastic gaming experience.
- The upload speeds beat all the competition, achieving 20mbs upstream, compared with 3mbps with a comparable Virgin package.
6G has a number of different variants of its internet packages. Some of these packages include a SIP (VoIP) telephone service through your 6G broadband connection. The SIP line comes with its own telephone phone number so you do not have to lose your existing number.

We started with 6G when a friend told us how quick it is compared to broadband, have to agree it's so fast it is like a breath of fresh air.

When 6G first came out we thought it was too good to be true so held off from buying for a few months. Pleased to say it is living up to everything they said it would.

6G Internet is much faster than my old provider. We don't get any slow down at peak times which is when we use it most.

Installation was a bit of a pain but the results are worth it!

We have been using 6G for quite a while now and have never been so impressed with essentially a broadband provider albeit one that uses wireless technology. I am now a huge fan and cannot wait to see what they come with next.

Very happy with the service that 6G provide. Their installation engineers were on time and cleaned up after themselves which is a novelty these days!

We couldn't get fibre in our area so when my friend told be about 6G I jumped at the chance of high speed intenet. There was a problem setting it all up but the support team fixed the problem and it's been great ever since.

I moved from Virgin, the upload speeds are so much faster it's amazing. Highly recommended.
