Internet & Phone
Castle Carrock has a BT fiber line into the village; this means you can get up to 70Mb/s using most internet providers. Please note that the connection is to the end of Rectory Road, the further you are from here, the slower your speed will be - e.g. those living around the reservoir will get about 50Mb/s. You can use this tool to estimate the speed for your postcode.
Mobile coverage in Castle Carrock has been known to be somewhat of a disaster in the past. Luckily, with the introduction of 4G, it is slightly better than it was.
Vodafone & O2 have got the best signal in the village. This covers most of the outdoors and signal inside some buildings. They both cover the village green. EE is not easy to get in Castle Carrock, although in some places you can - mostly around the sides of the village rather than the centre. Three does not cover Castle Carrock at all.
Some mobile providers offer a WiFi calling service, allowing you to make calls and send texts through WiFi - check your provider's website for more information.
