We’ll survey all of your options to find the right connection for you.

We Do Your Communications Logo

With so many options for super-fast broadband, it can be complicated to know where to look.  We are able to confirm the availability of multiple types of connection including FTTC, FTTP, GPON Leased Lines and dedicated leased lines.  More importantly, we will explain the differences in easy to understand examples along with making a recommendation using the vast number of years of experience we have in this industry.

We offer free advice without any pressured sales tactics.  We simply want to help you choose the right connection the first time.

Did you know it can take over 90 working days to get some commercial-grade connections installed?

FTTC

  • Fibre To The Cabinet – Typically costing £33+VAT per month
  • Fibre optics reach as far as the BT cabinet in the street with the remaining distance being covered by the traditional copper BT line.
  • Maximum download speeds of 80mbps and upload speeds of 20mbps although it is often quite a bit less than these
  • Most common type of connection – very similar to what most of us have in our homes
  • No longer requires an analogue telephone subscription as part of the move to a digital only service (link this to the BT cut off page/info)
  • Installation in as little as 1 week

FTTP

  • Fibre To The Premise – Typically costing £34-£55+Vat per month
  • Uses a fibre connection all the way to your property offering blistering speeds compared to FTTC
  • Speeds vary depending on the package chosen. Maximum speeds are 1000mbps down and 115mbps up
  • This is the latest type of common connection and is replacing many of the FTTC connections
  • Installation in as little as 3 weeks

GPON Leased Line

  • Full fibre solution – Typically costing £210+VAT per month
  • A corporate leased line solution with an 8 to 1 contention (Sharing the backbone with up to 8 others)
  • Speeds vary depending on the package chosen but most common packages provide either 500mbps or 1000mbps both up and down!
  • Considerably cheaper than a dedicated leased line
  • Installation in as little as 30-45 working days

Dedicated Leased Line

  • Full fibre solution – Typically costing £400+VAT per month
  • A corporate leased line solution with an 1 to 1 contention – This is a dedicated connection for just your use
  • Speeds vary depending on the package chosen but most common packages provide either 500mbps or 1000mbps both up and down!
  • One of the most expensive options but also one of the fastest and most reliable options!
  • Installation can range but is typically advertised as up to 90 working days

5G Mobile Broadband

  • Super-fast mobile data connection – Typically costing £45+VAT per month
  • A wire-free solution utilising the vast improvements in modern mobile phone networks
  • Speeds vary depending on location but can commonly reach 400mbps down and over 40mbps up
  • Provides the ability to easily move between locations
  • Installation is as simple as activating a data sim and so can be live within 24 hours.

Additional things to consider 

Type of router

The type of router you need will depend on the type of broadband you opt for.  This is not just down to the ‘type of hole’ you need to plug in to but also the ability to process the data throughput to maximise your use of your super-fast connection.  No point getting 1000mbps connection and having a router that struggles above 400mbps.

Your location

The reason we check with so many different service providers on your behalf is because the location of your office will impact who can provide you the best connection.  For example, GPON networks are still in limited locations and so knowing who covers what areas, allows us to find providers and solutions for you that others would commonly miss.

Each systems weakness

Each of the above styles of connections have their benefits but like many things, they also have their weaknesses.  For example, 5G broadband looks like a great contender for most with reasonably low monthly costs and quick installation times.  The available throughput will however vary depending on how congested the area is.  For example, do a speed test on 5G at 6pm in the city centre and your speeds will likely be up to 10 times what they would be if you do the same test at 10 am once the offices are full of other 5G mobile users.

We promise to look after you for the full term of your service, not just until it is installed.

We want to make life easier for you.

With this in mind, we have set up two options for you to get in touch.  The first option is a direct link to my diary so you can book a call in at a time that is convenient without the hassle of the usual back and forth. The second is a traditional contact form so if you would rather get in touch by email, then feel free to use that option.

Either way, it’s important to know:

  1. This is just an exploratory call/email.
  2. There’s no commitment to buy anything, ever.
  3. I’m not going to bad mouth your existing comms company. I’d rather help make your life easier!
  4. No matter how long you have left on any existing contracts, we should still talk.
  5. I’ll freely give you as much strategic advice as you like. Helping businesses be more productive and profitable through the correct use of technology is fun, for me!

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Adam

” Gas Flare had limited knowledge of the best way forward for our telephone and internet/Wi-Fi systems. ‘We do your comms’ have proved to be a great partnership. ‘We do your comms’ have helped Gas Flare every step of the way, With simple guidance and understanding. We would like to mention the help given by Anthony Teddy, he has given a lot of time to Gas Flare in setting up the systems. He has been at the end of the telephone with answers to any problems we have encountered, which have been very few. We would highly recommend ‘We do your comms’ to any company. They have been reliable, approachable and very friendly, and delivered what was agreed in a timely fashion.”
