Mark Betteridge is one of the first customers to have signed up to Vtesse's Birch Green offering.
The solicitor, who sometimes works from home, signed up for a 16Mbps service. He told ZDNet UK that although the company offers packages of up to 40Mbps, he "wouldn't need that".
Betteridge said his testing had indicated download speeds of 15.6Mbps and upload speeds of "just over a meg". His previous broadband connection, provided by "a certain satellite TV company", had given him "barely 0.75Mbps", he said.
"In terms of quantifying time saved, over a year it will save thousands," Betteridge said. "My wife also runs a business from home — for her, it's a massive improvement."
