1. Check how fast your current Broadband speed is
Download the “Speedtest” App onto your Mobile Phone to see what Broadband speed you have coming into your business or home. Once you have downloaded the App run the test 3 times in an area that is near to your Broadband router. If your Download speed is less than 80Mbps then you have either FTTC or ADSL Broadband. To get faster landline Broadband speed you will need to upgrade to FTTP Full Fibre however this is not yet available throughout the country so click on the link below to see when your postcode is scheduled to be upgraded:
Where and when we're building Ultrafast Full Fibre broadband | Openreach
If FTTP Full Fibre is not planned for your postcode for a number of years then it is still possible to improve your Broadband speed either using 5G/4G technology or a Business Leased Line. Contact us to check which services your postcode has today.
2. Changing your Broadband provider means you will also have to change your landline phone
If your business or home is currently using FTTC or ADSL Broadband then you will also have a landline phone number that you may be using to make and receive phone calls. By changing your Broadband service to either FTTP Full Fibre or a Business Leased Line you should also change your landline phone provider. The most popular option is to switch to a VOIP phone line which allows you to keep your existing number and answer any of your calls on your mobile phone when you are away from your office or home. Contact us about our VOIP Phone Line options with Unlimited UK Landline & Mobile Calls.
3. Once you’ve improved the speed you might also have to address your WiFi coverage
If your office or home covers a large area, has thick internal walls and/or there are external buildings that you need to get connected then you will have to ensure you have increased WiFi coverage throughout your premises or property. There are many solutions available from hard wired ethernet cabled solutions, WiFi mesh and powerline systems, outdoor access points and point-to-point systems – it’s about choosing the right option for your office or home.
