At over 1km from its existing VDSL2 Openreach cabinet the businesses in Tanshire Park, Elstead will be very pleased with the roll-out of fibre services via a dedicated on-site PoP by WarwickNet.
"Elstead is a very rural area where the development of sustainable employment locations is very important to the community and the local authority. Access to cost effective broadband continues to be the biggest problem for these areas and prior to linking up with WarwickNet our internet was extremely slow. Some of the larger organisations operating from Tanshire Park opted to lease dedicated fibre into their premises but this is not cost effective or suitable for all the firms.
We chose WarwickNet as the team were happy to work with tenants directly, understanding that they all have very different needs. A number of options ranging from 40 Mbit per second broadband to a high capacity uncontended service are now available on site and firms which have taken up the services have already experienced a vast improvement in speed and effectiveness."Gordon Farquharson, Director and Company Secretary of the landlords at Tanshire Park
The previous FTTC based speeds would have been in the 6 to 11 Mbps download range, so offering 40 Mbps and faster will be very welcome, particularly the availability of uncontended services which can be important for some businesses. The point of presence is located in the main comms room on site, with fibre running to a number of the buildings across the site making it easy to connect firms as they sign up.
