Broadband that works for your business.

Reliable & Fast Broadband

Having broadband to run a business of any size is a no brainer, to have the right connection for your business just needs a little thought and planning of where your business is now and in 1-4 years.

There is nothing worse, than the internet slowing users down and causing the most frustration in the office (or in-home office). There are several options available, we have listed a few of the popular services generally available to most business owners. 

The Broadband feeds to the Exchange cabinet (normally green cabinets located at the end of your road),  from there to your office or home where you plug in a router to complete the connection. There are different types of lines and speeds vary according to the type you have and the distance from the  Exchange cabinet to your premises.  

Measurable performance

Internet performance is measured on how much data can travel per second over the line, whether it is downloading to your device or uploading from your device. Every data is measured in megabytes and there are 1000 bytes in a gigabyte.

Lease Lines offer the best performance, stability and response to times to issues outside of CIS IT Support and control. With the option of a bearer line, this gives the flexibility to increase the performance over the forthcoming years without the need to enter into a new agreement.
