We are extremely excited to be working alongside ITS Technology Group to help bring Gigabit capable broadband to the centre of Hereford.
ITS have already built a Fibre to the Premises broadband network throughout the Rotherwas/Skylon area which has been in operation for a couple of years and this is now being extended into the centre of Hereford to give businesses access to full fibre to the premises products.
What is Fibre to the Premises?
The products that will be available on the network are 100% fibre meaning that they don’t require a telephone line to run it over like a standard Fibre to the Cabinet connection as the fibre is installed directly into your property. As a result of this the speeds that you are able to receive are assured meaning factors such as the quality of your copper phone line or the distance that you are away from the cabinet does not affect the speeds and quality of service that you receive. Better still, the service can grow with your business and can easily be re-graded in the future should you require additional bandwidth.
What speeds are available?
All the products come with symmetrical download and upload speeds of at least 100mbps with a variety of options for both smaller and larger businesses with the option to even have a completely uncontended connection with 1000mbps upload and download speeds.
On traditional Fibre to the Cabinet broadband services the maximum upload speeds available are 20mbps so having access to 100mbps upload speeds is great news for businesses in the city! The upload speed on a connection is important when you are sending large files and using cloud based software for example.
When is the network due to be ready?
ITS are working to have the network ready in early April. As a result we are now in a position to start taking orders to ensure that you are able to get the service as soon as the network goes live. The new service can be installed alongside your existing connection initially to ensure there is no downtime and disruption to your business.
