SUMMER is often a busy time for your social calendar; activities like booking tickets for days outs, buying supplies for a summer BBQ, or finding the perfect outfit for a day at the races, can all be frustrating tasks if coupled with slow internet.

As a generation of multi-taskers, we can often find ourselves shopping online while streaming music, downloading a film, uploading holiday pictures, and sending a few late-night work emails.  But all this activity may be putting a strain on your standard internet connection causing it to freeze, drop out, or become painfully slow as it struggles to keep up.

With only a few weeks to go until one of York’s biggest social events of the year, the Ebor Festival at York Racecourse, you’ll need a fast and reliable internet connection to help you find tickets, and bag a knockout outfit for the occasion.  

York’s Ultra Fibre Optic (UFO) from TalkTalk is here to help! Delivering lightning-fast speeds of more than 900Mb (that’s 16x faster than other fibre products), it’s consistently stable and reliable. This means that you can browse multiple online shopping sites and watch the latest video from your favourite Youtuber, all while your kids are kept entertained streaming their much-loved TV shows!
