UK Businesses are now able to get broadband download speeds of up to 300 Mbps.
Daisy Group, the UK’s largest independent provider of business communications, IT and cloud services, has added ultrafast fibre broadband to its range of connectivity products for small to medium-sized businesses.
It is the first time that companies will be able to sign up to ultrafast fibre broadband from an independent supplier. Daisy Ultrafast Broadband offers download speeds of up to 300 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 48 Mbps.
Ultrafast broadband, driven by FTTP and G.Fast technologies, is more reliable than existing broadband options and more than four times faster than the previous highest speed Daisy was able to offer businesses. They now have a choice of products – Daisy Broadband, Daisy Superfast Broadband and Daisy Ultrafast Broadband – depending on their needs, and availability in their area.
Ultrafast broadband enables faster processing without the need to invest in hard-wired Ethernet access to the internet. It can help increase productivity and efficiency; reduce money-wasting downtime; and provide easy access to the latest cloud technology.
As well as faster broadband, Daisy Ultrafast Broadband customers can access all the benefits that come with working with Daisy such as a fully-integrated service including voice, mobile, broadband security and business continuity. As an independent provider, Daisy is vendor, carrier and network agnostic so customers get the right solution at the right price with one point of contact if there is a problem. Everything is presented in one easy to understand, comprehensive monthly bill.
G.Fast is currently being rolled out to 158 towns and cities, with more than a million premises already able to receive the service, while 600,000 premises across 1,486 locations are currently live for FTTP.
Walter Rossi, Director of WAN, Daisy Group, said: “Daisy Ultrafast Broadband is an exciting addition to our range of Connectivity products. Not since mobile, has there been a technology that is so potentially transformative for businesses. As well as being more reliable, it means companies can increase their productivity, through simple things, such as reducing time waiting for large files to download. Importantly, it means companies will have the bandwidth to explore the technologies that will drive progress in the future such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and virtual reality (VR).”
“It is a major addition to our range of products. It means we provide businesses with a variety of connectivity options, ranging from simple broadband to dedicated internet access solutions and managed MPLS services. We offer a tailored, business-grade, ‘always-on’ connection – with performance and price levels to suit the business, and the scale and capacity to grow as they do.”
Ultrafast Fibre availability is dependent on a business’s location.
