What’s hot and what’s not
Leeds has been categorised as a ‘Gamma world city’, making it one of the most forward-looking developmental areas in Europe. A gamma world city or ‘global city’ is one that is considered to be an important node in the economic infrastructure of a country.
In the case of Leeds, its position as the second largest financial centre outside of London puts it in the premiere league for developing cities. A quarter of the working population of Leeds are employed in the banking, finance and insurance sectors – industries that rely heavily on ultra-fast broadband connectivity and a communications infrastructure that can cope with the demands of a 24/7 global industry.
That means the areas around Leeds City Centre have luxuriously fast download speeds. However, one of the surprising slow areas is around the University of Leeds at Woodhouse, so students may need to find a Wi-Fi cafe in Burley, Leeds City Centre or Kirkstall to check their emails.
Residential areas such as Beckhill, Little London and Lovell Park have fair to average coverage, although some flats in the high-rise blocks in Lovell Park may have connectivity issues, depending on their distance from the exchange.
Parts of the city are also BT Infinity-enabled such as the areas covered by the Pudsey Exchange, although this hasn’t yet been rolled out across the entire city.
