Often referred to as FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) Fibre Broadband is the go-to choice of connectivity for many because of its ability to provide download speeds of up to 80mbps at a cost effective price.
With fibre optic cables as its core infrastructure, data can travel at speeds approaching light speed which makes it a good choice for small businesses with lots of internet users who need fast download speeds at a cost-effective price.
Our superfast broadband comes in both Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) as well as Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) which is also becoming more available, providing download speeds of up to 330mbps.
Single Order Generic Ethernet Access (SoGEA) is a new Openreach product which enables businesses to order FTTC without a phone line.
With the advancement and cost effectiveness of mobile handsets and VoIP, as well as the nationwide roll-out of full fibre networks, there is less and less requirement for legacy phone services. In fact, many businesses only have a fixed analogue line because it is necessary for their broadband to work.
SoGEA was created in response to this shift in usage so that businesses can buy a broadband connection without the need for a separate line rental. The line which is provided as part of the SoGEA package will only provide an internet connection which means you’re unable to make or receive phone calls over the line. Negating the need for line rental, saving around 30% on your business broadband costs.
Openreach also claim that SoGEA is 50% quicker to install and comes with lower install and rental costs, and because there are no traditional phone line frequencies being used, there is also less chance of interference which can cause unstable connections.
If FTTC or SoGEA aren’t available in your area we also provide ADSL or ADSL2+ Broadband options with download speeds of up to 20MB depending on your location.
For businesses who require access to business critical cloud applications or upload large files we would recommend you also look at our leased line options.
