Internet Access

ISP Routers

This is now an essential, but why donít you have a back-up connection &/or dual working to effectively double your speed?

The routers and Firewalls we supply do that, network offices together and allow home workers and mobile user to connect into the office.

Not all Internet connections are equal, this is down to the ISP, the distance from the exchange & the type of connection.

ISP Ė Internet Service Provider

This is the company that provides your Internet connection, some provide a cheap ADSL service with unlimited usage, but they are unlikely to also give you the full speed your line will support. The closer you are to the exchange the faster your connection should be. We can organise service from an ISP that will provide the maximum speed your line will support and give usage information that helps fix faults as soon as possible.

Internet Usage Graph

Some ISPs have their own equipment in your local BT exchange, this normally means a faster & more reliable service as you have reached their network sooner.

Virgin Business now runs all the local Cable TV regions and if they pass your premises than can provide a very fast, reliable service as you have a fibre link right back to the Internet.



Wi-Fi Office - Dual Internet, Phones, Computors and Printer

Routers

The routers we supply can support Dual and a Mobile Phone Internet connection, so everyone is able to access the Internet from their ordinary computer connected to the office network even if the normal broadband service fails via a single mobile connection. The quality of this depends on the mobile network coverage.

BT is rolling out Fibre to the cabinet (FTTC), which they market as BT Infinity. Other ISPs also supply FTTC service which can provide 40 Mbps download and 10 Mbps up which makes it idea for sites with remote offices / home-workers / VoIP links. With the right router you can have ADSL right now, and you know that you have a VDSL port available to allow for upgrading when VDSL service is available to you.

Any one of these connections can fail, which would leave you without Internet access. A back-up service is often less than £1 per day and the way we configure it means that itís not just sitting there, doing nothing, just waiting for things to go wrong. Our back-up service is being used in parallel with your normal ISP effectively DOUBLING YOUR INTERNET SPEED with pages loading in half the time as data making up the page with pictures etc flows down both the connections simultaneously.

Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi comes in three speeds (10Mbs, 54Mbs, 300Mbs) and two frequencies (2.4Ghz, 5Ghz). The 2.4Ghz band has been used so much that in many areas it is so congested that people just can't get a stable or fast connection. The 5Ghz band which was just used for specialist applications is now being made generally available so you can now get a better quality signal even in the most populous areas, just select a Dual Band router and if your PC doesn't support 5GHz plug in a USB adaptor.
