We are experts at providing Internet Access to small businesses through to large multi-site global clients.

We can provide the technology to connect them to the cloud, either openly or privately.

The Carriers / Backbone Providers

Through years of experience at delivering internet access solutions, we know where to source the best of breed carrier networks across the UK, Europe & Internationally. We also access small boutique local UK carrier networks that provide specialist internet connectivity for a wide range of diverse projects.

Optimum Speeds

We don’t over contend our Broadband or Fibre Broadband services resulting in poor customer download speeds. We don’t apply any rules, rate limit or reduce your optimum speed in any way. What you can get to your site is what we provide.

Unlimited Usage

We provide to businesses and providing a high quality connection to our customers is paramount. Almost all of our connectivity products (Except Fibre to the Premises) have no bandwidth download limits or traffic shaping at any time of the day. We provide the full throughput of the line and run a low contended network which provides excellent performance when customers wish to utilise Voice over IP on the line. Our products range from Standard Business Broadband right through to Ethernet, Leased Line and dedicated internet access.

Managed Installations

With our access technologies we provide un-managed and managed options. We can provide all our difference access methods with Managed CPE (router) including service level agreements to suit your business. We can also provide our access services without the necessary router for you utilise your own preferred manufacturer.

Resilience and Backup

By adding a type of resilience or back-up to your primary internet service, it can ensure that your internet service continues to operate in the event of a failure. A failure of your internet service can be related to:

  • your service provider
  • your CPE
  • a third party
  • you local network.

All of our internet access technologies we supply to our clients can include a form of automatic fail-over. We can provide 3G & 4G backup options to all of our copper based and fibre based services. This enables us to provide a managed broadband service with a 99.99% up-time for a relatively low cost.

Our Ethernet products can also be provided with a secondary back up service with several different access technologies. The Managed CPE can also be provided with dual resilient routers and switches to create added diversity. Our Ethernet access technologies can be diversely routed from a clients site to separate local exchanges, exit the building from different paths and include independent networks for the primary and secondary service.

As standard with our Ethernet Leased Lines we will offer ADSL Broadband backup or Fibre Broadband backup where applicable. One of more recent backup services is microwave Ethernet. We run a network in Manchester with another provider (Not Metronet) that provides Microwave access to almost all parts of Manchester city centre and surrounding areas.

Microwave Ethernet has a fantastically short lead time of 30 days, sometimes up to 7 days if we have resource available. We can provide speeds over 100mb which is suitable for almost all business customers we provide services too. Microwave Ethernet also performs within the same parameters as a Ethernet Leased Lines in terms of quality and fix times.
