A brief history of copper and its Endgame!

Posted by Nick Shepperd, Head of Product on Nov 20, 2019 2:29:51 PM

A few months ago we ran a webinar at FluidOne for customers about a full fibre Britain and what this means for us all. It was a great session with good debate and brilliant Q&A....

For preparation I carried out a great deal of research and as I was trawling through information, I came to appreciate and understand why our industry may be confused around what is going on with the copper network.

So for those who were unable to join the webinar I thought I would write a short blog which guides you through copper retirement and steps you should take.

How fast is my service?

Posted by Dan Pope on Sep 15, 2010 3:26:17 PM

With Ofcom keen to set restrictions on advertised internet speeds, it is important to remember the difficulties in assessing the potential speed a user can get until the service has been installed. Back in the old days with fixed rate products, such as BT ADSL IPStream and SDSL, it was much easier to downgrade a user’s service to the next available product if the bandwidth they desired was technically not possible to deliver. However with the advent of ‘up to’ services customers receive the fastest speed their line can support for the same monthly charge.

What's in contention?

Posted by Dan Pope on Oct 25, 2009 9:15:02 AM

In the UK, contention ratios have increasingly become a topic of conversation and interest for many in the IT industry. The term contention ratio refers to the maximum number of other users you could share your bandwidth at any one time. This is important especially for businesses as the more users you share your line with the more unstable and unreliable your line will be.

Annex-M opens a world of opportunities

Posted by Dan Pope on Oct 11, 2009 10:15:42 AM

With the wide availability of Annex-M technology on the O2 network, new opportunities should be opening up to wholesalers. With bandwidth hungry technologies such as remote backup, database replication and FTP, high upload is a key factor in delivering these services to business. However, reliability is also a key requirement, and for the first time businesses can feel confident in moving their voice and video from legacy solutions such as ISDN over to ADSL2+ based services.
