Hi, my name is Sebastien and I'm one of the founders of the thinkbroadband website.

We've come a long way since we started over eight years ago.

Back in 2000, we were the first source of broadband information in the UK, when ADSL technology was in its infancy and our visitors were more likely to have a technical background.

Over the last few years, the Internet has changed with sites like Youtube, Twitter and Facebook bringing users right to the centre of the new web--The internet isn't baout publishers any more; it's about everyone.

With the increasing speed and availability of broadband services, we're seeing new applications like video and social networking, taking over from traditional media.

So, we feel it's about time we take a step forward and provide you, our users, with a more interactive way to solve your broadband problems, be it finding a service provider or improving the performance of your broadband connection.

We also want to show you what broadband is truly capable of delivering, so we're making these videos available in HD quality so you can see what high definition TV looks like.

We're trying to make this an interactive experience, so if you have any questions, comments or queries; or you think we've missed something or we can do something better then please do get in touch--We'd love to hear from you.
