What is Business Fibre Broadband?

Fibre is the latest in broadband technology travelling through a glass cable at lightning speed. 5G broadband provides this with our very own extensive Fibre Optic Broadband infrastructure network in London, High Wycombe and the South. Your Internet traffic travels through this superhighway connecting you to the world.

Upgrade Today!

Business Fibre Broadband uses next generation optic fibres to transport data via light, bringing speeds of up to 80Mb/s.

How easy is it to install fibre or broadband?

Extremely easy! We do all the work at the exchange and in the street cabinet.

Depending on the product you order and the speeds available at your premises, you’ll either plug in the router yourself or we’ll send an engineer out to you. The router comes with simple instructions so you shouldn’t have any problems.

Will I need a new router?

You’ll need a router to get up and running, but don’t worry. If you’re a new customer you’ll receive a router with your package.

If you’re an existing broadband customer and you’ve upgraded to superfast fibre broadband, we’ll send you out a brand new router.

How does fibre optic broadband work?

Unlike telephone lines – which have essentially been repurposed to carry broadband – fibre optic cables are custom-built for broadband. Information is transmitted as flashes of light. The thing about light is that it travels extremely quickly. There’s less chance of interference slowing down fibre too.

This means the broadband speeds you get from a fibre package are much faster than you’d get from a ‘traditional’ connection, and you get speeds much closer to the ‘up to’ speeds advertised by providers to boot.

That’s not to say speeds will be exactly the same as advertised, mind you. Most superfast packages use fibre optic cables to your nearest cabinet – the green box on or near your street – and run from there Into the home via copper telephone wire, which is unreliable and prone to interference at the best of times. As a result, some drop in speed is inevitable – how much depends on the distance covered.

Why business-grade broadband matters.

If you started your business using your home broadband, it doesn’t take long to realise that the needs of broadband for a business are different to those of a consumer. When your livelihood depends on it, you need an internet service that really makes the grade. Consider fibre business broadband.

If your business is totally reliant on internet access, you need a leased line.

Reasons why superfast broadband is becoming increasingly essential for consumers and businesses

1. Superfast broadband is now almost the same price as basic broadband
The prices of superfast broadband services are already falling significantly, and there’s already a small difference between the price of superfast broadband and basic broadband services. In a recent Ofcom report, Ofcom found that the difference between the monthly rental fees for ISPs’ lowest-cost ‘superfast’ services and their lowest-cost ‘current generation’ services is often relatively small.

2. Conventional broadband services can be unreliable
ADSL broadband is carried along copper cables all the way from the BT exchange to homes and business premises. Inevitably, the broadband signal suffers attenuation as it travels along the copper cable from the exchange to broadband modems, reducing the speeds that can be delivered and making the broadband signal susceptible to interference.

3. Superfast broadband connectivity is essential for many businesses
Superfast broadband is increasingly becoming essential, whatever the size of the company.

In businesses with a significant number of employees, superfast broadband ensures that employees no longer have to compete for access to slow and limited conventional broadband services, increasing efficiency. Widespread deployment of superfast broadband services also allows businesses to provide flexible working for employees so that they can work from home and access company systems remotely, saving costs and reducing carbon footprints.

Superfast broadband provides efficiency improvements and cost savings, through improved online sales and marketing, improved online ordering and invoicing, enhanced video conferencing and VoIP services, and improved access to cloud-based services.

Upgrade to a leased line.

What is a leased line?

A leased line is a private high-performance circuit leased by a common carrier between a customer and a service provider’s network. It is rented on an annual basis and usually carries voice and data or both.

Leased lines are mostly used for either internet access (Internet) or used privately between two customer sites (Point to Point). Unlike a dial-up connection, a leased line is always active. Similarly unlike broadband, a leased line is not contended or shared and delivers dedicated guaranteed bandwidth straight to the internet backbone. Customers pay a premium for this line and it is supported by a comprehensive Service-Level Agreement (SLA) with a guaranteed fix time and a compensation clause. Otherwise referred to as a point to point, private circuit, private line or dedicated access.

Leased lines are made up of the following components:

  • A router, managed by 5G Communications, is installed into a customer’s comms room. The circuit is presented with an RJ45 connector as standard.
  • depending upon location, a back haul circuit may be used to link a customer to their service provider’s point of presence and then onto the internet gateway. This will take place behind the scenes and may run over a third party’s national network.

Bandwidth can be tailored to a company’s exact requirements, ranging from 10Mbps to 1Gbps. The required speed could depend upon the number of employees accessing the internet or perhaps upon the applications used; some being more bandwidth intensive than others.

Once the appropriate speed has been achieved a network administrator might monitor the following:

  • number of users accessing the internet simultaneously at peak times
  • the type of services accessed by users i.e. email, voice, hosted CRM, Skype, music downloads etc the number of hits or visits internal servers receive.

Leased Lines are normally used by businesses that need:

  • high quality 24/7 access to the internet with an SLA
  • to run mission critical applications
  • fast upstream speeds. For example, remote workers accessing office based applications will be pulling away data from their office
  • Unlimited Data
  • Symmetrical connection.
