Gigabit Internet Voucher Scheme

Will Wood Blog

Are you one of the many businesses in Bath & North East Somerset who are struggling to get access to superfast broadband?

Datasharp are at the forefront of providing internet services and network security to businesses in this area and know all too well the woes of over-subscribed cabinets in our fine city.

Now, we’re please to offer incredibly fast true fibre internet connection at a fraction of the price.  ‘Fibre Ethernet’ is the highest-grade internet connection available, offering uncontended throughput speed up to 10Gig, synchronous upload/download speeds, excellent SLAs and the ability to guarantee bandwidth for real-time applications, such as VoIP and video conferencing.

We can also install into 100% of business premises, regardless of whether BT have oversubscribed equipment!

Gigabit Internet Voucher Scheme

Businesses in Bath & North East Somerset could now benefit from grants of up to £3000 to get gigabit broadband installed as part of a £2 million trial taking place in four areas around the UK.

Suppliers will be offering vouchers worth between £500 and £3000 each to local businesses which can then be used to pay for the installation of gigabit speed connections. The aim of the trial is to encourage the market to extend full fibre infrastructure in the UK by increasing demand and reducing the cost to customers.

The many benefits of a full fibre gigabit connection include:

● Allowing businesses to upload and download massive files in a matter of seconds

● Enabling widespread use of videoconferencing throughout an organisation

● Providing an unprecedented level of reliability whilst greatly enhancing resilience

● Future proofing – making sure that businesses have the technology in place to deal with the ever increasing demands for internet speed and connectivity.

● Allowing businesses in remote communities to compete on a technologically level playing field with those companies based in major cities who may already have full fibre connectivity.

 

Not all internet connections are created equal

Worth mentioning that the above services are not to be confused with ‘Fibre Broadband’ (FTTC), which typically uses copper cable for the last leg into the building, whilst also being ‘asynchronous’ (faster download than upload) and typically has a 2-day SLA for faults.
