We mount a small receiver on the outside of your property aimed at one of our transmitters. We do need clear line of sight between this receiving antenna and the nearest transmitter mast. We then run a cable into your property and fit a Wi-Fi router inside that is used to connect your laptops and other internet-enabled devices.
Being completely independent from the ‘copper wire’ infrastructure used by normal broadband providers means that our customers are not impacted by the distance to the local exchange or if a cable in the ground is accidentally cut. It is important to note that even when an area is claimed to be ‘fibre enabled’, all this really means is that the Openreach green street cabinet is fibre connected. However, the connection from that cabinet to your property is still connected by copper, which severely reduces the speeds over any distance from that cabinet. We do not suffer this problem, which means we can often provide a faster service even to areas that are ‘fibre enabled’.
Manage large files, stream video and work at speed.
Until the start of March 2021, the government are funding new connections to gigabit capable broadband connections which covers the entire install fee. This is available on a first come first served basis.
