Fibre broadband

Fibre broadband for business

With fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) broadband being phased out, we can provide you with replacement fibre to the premises (FTTP) or full fibre connections for high-speed internet access at an attractive price. It offers a contended connection with up to 1Gbps download and 200Mbps upload speeds.


What is fibre broadband?

FTTP or full fibre means that the entire connection from your office, factory, warehouse, etc. to your local exchange and onto the internet is all carried over fibre optic cabling. This is fast replacing ageing copper or part-copper connections, such as ADSL and FTTC.

Fibre is the future of broadband for businesses that do not need guaranteed uptime but do want to use real-time communications services. It offers enhanced speeds of up to 50 times faster than traditional broadband with improved resilience to ensure businesses enjoy increased productivity without being held back by a slow internet connection.



Benefits of fibre broadband

Speed

There is no doubt that speed is the biggest benefit of fibre broadband. If your business has limped along with poor ADSL or FTTC speeds, then full fibre will revolutionise your everyday tasks. With ultrafast full fibre broadband download speeds of up to 1Gbps, you will notice the difference immediately!


Reliability

By replacing copper connections with fibre optic cables, your broadband is far less likely to drop out or suffer interference. Fibre broadband is largely unaffected by extreme weather conditions and can maintain better speeds over longer distances to achieve greater bandwidth for businesses that are located further from the grid.


Improved communication

Most of us now use video calls and meetings on a regular basis, so we understand how frustrating a frozen screen or lost connection can be. Businesses are using more real-time communications services that rely on reliable internet connections. Full fibre broadband can make sure your interactions go without a hitch or glitch.


Be more profitable

If your business is enjoying increased productivity having been freed from the constraints of a slow internet connection, then increased profits are sure to follow. Not only will your staff enjoy super-quick, stress-free access to cloud-based services, you will also avoid the pain and potential cost of any downtime.  


Supporting growth

Business fibre broadband will enable more people to be online and using cloud services at the same time. This means you can grow your business without fear of overwhelming your internet connection and having to work at a super-slow pace. A growing business that is more productive must be a good thing!


Does my business need full fibre broadband?

Future-proof your connectivity

If you are still using ADSL or FTTC (sometimes also referred to as fibre or superfast broadband confusingly), then you will need to upgrade to a full fibre or SoGEA (LINK) connection as Openreach is withdrawing these legacy connections as they and others roll out full fibre networks. You will never regret switching to full fibre.


Unbearably slow speeds

Do not underestimate how internet speeds can affect the productivity of your business. Older broadband connections will slow you down, frustrate your staff and potentially disappoint or frustrate your customers. With better alternatives available, on-grid businesses should not have to suffer the disadvantages of broadband that cannot cope with modern-day demands.


More people, more data, more cloud services

If you are growing your business, sending bigger files, handling more data, or want to use more cloud services, then you will need better broadband. If you are not in the marketplace for an internet leased line, full fibre broadband will give you the speeds and reliability you will undoubtedly benefit from. 


Frequently asked questions

1. What are the disadvantages of full fibre broadband?

It is still a broadband product and therefore still has the same limitations in terms of it being a contended service, lacking scalability and symmetrical speeds. It also still lacks a service level agreement, so if you suffer an outage, there is no guaranteed fix time which could leave your business offline for hours or days.

2. Is ultrafast broadband the same as full fibre or FTTP?

Generally ultrafast broadband provides speeds of 300Mbps or more, as offered by full fibre broadband or FTTP. The term superfast broadband is in line with FTTC that offers speeds of 30Mbps or more. Gigabit broadband offers speeds of at least 1Gbps.

3. Can my business get full fibre broadband?

This is the question everyone wants to know the answer to! The full fibre broadband network is growing all the time with Openreach and others rolling out their connections across the UK. Simply, get in touch with us and we can let you know if full fibre is in your area.
