From making the upgrade to ultrafast broadband with Fibre-to-the-Premise (FTTP), Giles is not only future proofed, but now feels “connected to the world” with internet speeds that have undoubtedly soared to 100Mb/s (cable) and 61Mb/s (wireless) from previously receiving 2-6Mb/s!
Giles requires reliable, simultaneous use of ultrafast broadband for both personal and business needs and also works from home 1-2 days a week. In particular, Giles uses multiple devices and applications for house automation, streaming TV & music, social media and managing copious amounts of photos. Giles explained that other fibre solutions couldn’t fulfil his requirement, including wireless, which had poor signal that regularly dropped and was hindered by flint brick walls in the house. It wasn’t until the affordable and practical solution of having fibre laid directly to the premise, could Giles take-up a service that would serve his requirement.
“We have joined the connected world! Before, we couldn’t even do the basics that everyone else took for granted; it felt worse than the very old, dial-up internet using modems! Now, it’s essential if you have a number of modern devices that you need to use simultaneously and FTTP will be a significant selling point for our property.”
