For many, the prospect of gigabit Internet speeds in the UK is unrealistic as in certain rural areas even regular broadband connections are not available. However, this has not stopped some of the largest Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the world pushing forward with gigabit Internet technology. In fact, in certain areas it is now possible to purchase connectivity products that promise speeds of up to 1Gb; however do these products actually deliver?
Last night played host to the 14th annual Internet Service Providers Awards (ISPAs) where the most innovative and successful companies flock to recognise excellence and innovation.
We’ve just announced the largest publicly available 1Gb/s Fibre to the home infrastructure in the UK, a joint initiative between Fluidata and Independent Fibre Networks Limited (IFNL), which is part of the Inexus Group of Companies. IFNL’s infrastructure connects into Fluidata’s wholly-owned national network, which means that we can deliver superfast broadband via a choice of more than 40 ISPs to more than 50,000 newly built commercial and residential properties, in 20 sites in the UK.
