Internet speed per campus of your university

The request was successful.

Hi Bridgwater & Taunton College

Hope you’re well. Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, please can I request the following information about the university’s internet speed:

Average upload speed (of all campuses)
Average download speed (of all campuses)
The name of your internet network provider

Please could this information be sourced from up-to-date tests? You can use my client’s speed test checker here:

Look forward to your response.

Kindest regards,

Dear Jack,


Thank you for your email and subsequent Freedom of Information request.


The College connects to the internet via JANET, the network of academic
bodies provided via JISC and has done since Incorporation in 1993. The
College pays an annual fee for all JISC services, which includes many
services other than JANET – there is no breakdown for how much of this is
for the Internet connectivity via JANET.  The College is connected to
JANET via 1Gbps links, however, due to the nature of buildings, speed and
quality of connection over dispersed campuses average connection speeds
can vary considerably over quite a small area.


I trust this information is sufficient for your request.


Kind regards
