In an increasingly connected world, it’s important that your business can keep up. Superfast broadband delivers speeds that are up to 10 times faster than standard broadband and won’t slow down around peak times.
Unlike residential broadband, businesses can use FTTP or FTTC fibre. FTTP is available throughout the UK, so your business can have superfast broadband anywhere. Our consultants will advise you on whether you can use the cheaper FTTC, or whether your area only receives FTTP broadband. We’ll even let you know if the situation changes to help you reduce your spend.
Why Should I Invest in Superfast Broadband?
As with any investment in your communications systems, superfast broadband yields an excellent ROI if installed and utilised correctly. Your business will benefit from:
- Increased productivity: No more time wasted waiting for pages to load
- Increased collaboration: Superfast broadband lets you use more collaborative technology so that your employees can work more closely on projects and connect between offices
- No contention rate: Maintain a reliable high-speed internet connection throughout the day
- No limit to how many people can work on your office network: With superfast broadband, there’s no limit to how many employees/clients can work on your network at the same time

Customer-facing businesses can reap yet more rewards by upgrading their broadband, from improved customer service that comes from offering support via hangouts or Skype, through to increased exposure on social media by offering internet access via public hotspots.
Also known as Ethernet leased lines, private circuits, or point to point, this premium service comes with a premium price but offers unparalleled security and reliability for your business.
Speeds range from 2Mbps to 10Gbps, and are consistent through the day with no lag at peak times or when you have a high number of users on the system. However, leased lines come at a significant cost and new products are always appearing on the market, so speak to our consultants about your requirements and we can review the costs and benefits of each solution to find the right fit.
