Ofcom Reveals UK Internet Speeds are ‘Patchy’

Posted by Dan Pope on 15/12/14 15:09
Over the past few months there have been numerous calls for Ofcom to investigate the UK’s telecommunications industry as many have claimed that certain companies such as BT are monopolising the market and failing to provide their customers promised connection speeds. However, much to many people’s surprise the industry regulator has claimed that competition in the market is healthy, and that fixed broadband connections are now "almost universally available" throughout the UK.

Competition in fibre

Last week I moved into a new flat in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park village in Stratford. By working within the industry for over 4 years I knew a pain and delay for installation awaited me. To my surprise I had a pleasant experience with my connectivity, compared to others who have recently moved into new build properties, such my MD, Piers Daniell, who moved into his flat to find a standard BT socket.

Playroom Mk2

Posted by Dan Pope on 21/04/11 11:00
Nearly exactly a year after we signed the lease for our new office, our new demo suite is now ready. I have spoken before about our old playroom in our previous office on Tooley Street and we wanted to replicate it when we moved office. We did nearly straight away but with the worst copper known to man coming into the building (the site flooded twice in two years…) speeds were not that impressive. Also because of the layout of the office we couldn’t just replicate the playroom like for like and needed to find a new way to demo our products and services.

Playroom is ready!

We have just launched our “Playroom” at our sales office in London. If you are currently looking to change your services or would like to experience another product then our demo room is the perfect place to start. The idea is to deliver all our products from ADSL2+, SDSL, Advance, PureFluid and even fibre into this room so you can see firsthand how the services perform. You can even bring along your own equipment to test with.
