Gigabit Networks: Runner-Up in Broadband Genie’s 2024 Fastest Provider Category

In today’s fast-paced digital world, speed is king. Recently, at the 2024 Broadband Genie Awards, Gigabit Networks was recognized as a standout contender, securing the runner-up spot in the “Fastest Provider” category.

With an impressive average download speed of 375 Mbps, Gigabit Networks has solidified its position as a leading broadband provider. This achievement underscores our unwavering dedication to delivering top-tier services that meet the escalating needs of internet users. 

The Broadband Genie Awards, based on thorough analysis and data, reflect the sentiments of 2,662 broadband consumers surveyed between September 28, 2023, and February 8, 2024. An extensive examination of 413,723 broadband speed tests conducted from January 1, 2023, to January 31, 2024, further validates our performance. 

Gigabit Networks’ recognition in the “Fastest Provider” category is a testament to our robust infrastructure, advanced technology, and customer satisfaction. In an era where speed is paramount, we’ve proven our capability to consistently deliver high-speed internet. This accolade not only celebrates our achievements but also sets a benchmark for the industry.

Why it’s time to add connectivity

Broadband—it’s an essential part of modern-day life and part of the foundations of every business. So, it begs the question: Should MSPs be selling connectivity to their customers? The answer is a resounding yes, and here’s why.

As an MSP, you’re uniquely positioned to harness the benefits of a connectivity arm. I’m going to share with you why you should be adding connectivity to your product portfolio, the benefits for both MSPs and their customers, and how Gigabit Networks provide the support to make it happen.

Let’s jump straight in.

1. It’s another revenue stream

As an MSP, you might already be providing your customers with IT, cybersecurity, telecoms, or all the above. You already understand the IT landscape and the role that connectivity plays, and you’ve honed the skills to effectively manage your MSP services. This makes adding connectivity the next logical step!

Connectivity isn’t a complicated product to onboard for new customers, and armed with your industry experience, you can start reaping the benefits of additional revenue with minimal effort.

2. You will be offering a better service

Each company will have unique requirements, but every business needs connectivity that supports their business activity. By providing businesses with options for all-fibre FTTP and Ethernet connectivity, you’re elevating their security and their services.

Offering leased line connectivity delivers uncontended internet (and peace of mind) to your customers, and this is a big sell for data-hungry companies that want airtight security.

As we’ve already touched on, you might be providing other technology services already, so adding connectivity means you’re offering an even better, centralised service.

3. Fewer support tickets

If you’re selling cloud services, you’re selling services that depend on reliable internet access. How often does an IT support ticket surface that’s rooted in poor connectivity or bandwidth? We’re guessing you’ve encountered your fair share. But the good news is – you can prevent this. By providing your customer’s connectivity solution, you’re one step ahead of the troubleshooting; this means reduced support tickets and less resource expenditure.

4. Attracting new business and cross-selling opportunities

You’ve invested time, energy, and resources into your customer relationships. All the hard work has been done; now it’s time to leverage the trusted relationships and established customer base.

Your current customers become viable sales prospects that are already down the funnel, providing the opportunity for an easier sale. As a known entity, you’re the natural choice for those considering a connectivity upgrade and can continue to keep customers happy (long-term!).

Customers want an easy life, and you want an easy sale. Connectivity meets the needs of both sides of the table. Products such as telecoms and IT are multi-layered and often a more considered purchase. So, when it comes to attracting new customers, leading with telecoms can be tricky.

By contrast, connectivity is less complicated and daunting. Customers can be resistant to change when it comes to their sole communication system, whereas a broadband connection is far less personal.  Adding connectivity is a quicker and easier sale that requires less back and forth with a new customer, and with the added benefit of quick deployment time, there’s a lot to shout about.

Why choose Gigabit Networks?

Here at Gigabit Networks, we understand the connectivity landscape, and we take our partnerships seriously. A true partnership is not just about making a sale; it is also about supporting you to grow and be successful.

Here are just a few ways we provide value and support to our MSPs:

  • We offer tailored sales and marketing packages, so you’re never left on your own.
  • We will be your single point of contact, making communications and support requests easy.
  • We provide a simple, future-proof all-fibre product range that delivers true reliability.
  • We take a hands-on approach and provide support where you need it; we’ll even knock on doors for you!

Final thoughts

We’re on your team, one point of contact, building a trusting relationship that drives success. Don’t miss out on the opportunity connectivity provides. If you’re ready to start generating more revenue and strengthening your relationship with your customers, chat to our team and request a partner pack.

Detailed Guide for Gigabit Fast 900 Plan

In today’s hyper-connected world, high-speed broadband is essential, but 900Mbps doesn’t always mean you’ll get the full speed. In this blog, we’ll explore why and discuss the role connection and IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) in shaping your broadband experience. 

The Need for Speed 

Before we dive into the nuances of broadband speed, let’s first understand what Mbps means. Mbps stands for megabits per second, and it represents the rate at which data can be transmitted over your broadband connection. In theory, a 900Mbps connection should allow you to download 900 megabits of data every second. That’s incredibly fast! 

The Reality of Shared Bandwidth 

However, the key word here is “should.” In practice, several factors can impact your actual broadband speed, one of which is the number of devices connected to your network. When multiple devices are vying for the same bandwidth, the available speed is shared among them. This means that if you have several smartphones, tablets, laptops, smart TVs, and gaming consoles all connected to your network, the speed experienced by each device will be reduced.  

Think of your broadband connection as a motorway, and the data as cars. With a single device, data can flow smoothly at 900Mbps, but when more devices join the road, traffic congestion occurs, and the speed at which data travels decreases. This is known as network congestion, and it’s a common reason why your actual speed may not match the advertised 900Mbps. This is why at Gigabit Networks we advertise ‘up to 900Mbps’. Nevertheless, this is why we also suggest our 900Mbps broadband, to try and prevent as much traffic.

 Why Choose Gigabit Network’s 900Mbps Plan? 

A 900Mbps broadband plan offers blazing-fast internet speeds, unlocking a wide range of possibilities and advantages for customers. Here are some cases and additional things you can do with such a high-speed plan: 

  • Smooth 4K/8K streaming and reduced latency for gaming. 
  • Blazing fast downloads/uploads for content creators and remote workers 
  • Boosts productivity for home offices through clear video calls and cloud access 
  • Supports multiple simultaneous users across devices without congestion. 
  • Future-proofed for emerging tech and applications 
  • Enhanced home entertainment with smart devices and live streaming 
  • Allows smooth integration of IoT devices like security cameras and thermostats 

The ultra-fast up to 900Mbps speeds power next gen demands from streaming to smart homes. Get uninterrupted 4K entertainment, gaming, work and more.

IPv6: The Future of Internet Protocol 

IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) is the latest version of the Internet Protocol, which is used to identify and locate devices on the internet. One of the reasons IPv6 was developed is because the older IPv4 protocol had limited address space, which was rapidly running out as more devices came online. IPv6 solves this problem by providing a vast number of unique IP addresses, ensuring the continued growth of the internet. 

So, what does IPv6 have to do with broadband speed? Well, as ISPs (Internet Service Providers) transition to IPv6, it can have a subtle impact on your broadband experience. While the transition itself doesn’t directly affect speed, it may introduce changes to your network configuration, which could influence how efficiently data is routed. These changes are generally transparent to end-users, but they are part of the broader infrastructure upgrades necessary for the internet’s continued expansion and stability. 

Maximising Your 900Mbps 

To make the most of your 900Mbps broadband connection, consider the following tips: 

  • Optimize Device Usage: Be mindful of how many devices are actively using the internet at the same time. Streaming 4K videos on multiple devices while gaming and video conferencing may strain even a high-speed connection. 
  • Check for Network Congestion: At peak usage times, network congestion may be more prevalent. Schedule high-bandwidth activities during off-peak hours if possible. 
  • Stay Informed: Keep an eye on Gigabit networks updates regarding IPv6 transition or any changes in network configuration that might affect your service. 
  • Contact Us: If you consistently experience speeds significantly lower than what you’re paying for, reach out to us for assistance. We can help troubleshoot and optimise your connection.

Real-world factors like device connections and network congestion can impact your broadband speed. IPv6 is essential for the internet’s future growth. By staying informed and optimising your network, you can enjoy high-speed internet in our connected world.

Two Years at Gigabit Networks: An Exclusive Interview with Tim

As Tim Loveday (Head of New Business and Channel Sales) celebrates his remarkable two-year journey with Gigabit Networks, we had the privilege of sitting down with him to reflect on the incredible growth and transformation this company has witnessed during his tenure. In this exclusive interview, Tim takes us on a captivating ride through the company’s evolution, the dynamic industry trends in full-fibre technology, his insights on Gigabit Network’s market competitiveness, the expanding partnerships and collaborations that have fueled their success, and his exciting vision for the future. This conversation offers a unique glimpse into the heart of Gigabit Networks and the driving force behind its impressive rise in the world of connectivity.

What Has the Company’s Growth and Transformation Been Like in the Last Two Years? 

Tim: The company has changed exponentially since I joined in 2021. We have gone from 3 to 23 staff and upped revenues 10-fold in that period of trading! Honestly, when I started at the business, we were very much still in startup mode, the network was still being built, and we were still finding our feet in terms of the product and go-to-market strategy. Over a two-year period, we have managed to productise the services that we deliver, define clear routes to market and build those effectively, and drive monthly run rate revenues into the business, which now means we are turning a profit rather than burning cash. The achievements above mean that we are now effectively in scale-up mode, where we are looking for continued sustainable growth to get to our aim of being one of the largest and most successful FTTP aggregators in the UK. 

In terms of staff, we have made a number of strategic hires across those two years, bringing in seasoned channel talent to make sure we can help deliver the growth plans that we have. Of course, scaling is always a relatively challenging process, and hiring staff can be a lottery, but through our internship and apprenticeship programmes, we have managed to bring in young talent from local areas and train them up to be the people that we need within our business to help us achieve the goals that we have.  

What Has Been the Industry Trends and Full-fibre Advancements During This Period? 

Tim: In terms of the FTTP landscape, a lot has changed in the last two years, and there are some significant milestones to come over the next two years as well. The PSTN switch-off is, of course, fueling the delivery of FTTP, and we are capitalising on this as best we can. We are now seeing FTTP cover a significant amount of the population, and this is only set to grow. Openreach is now opening its infrastructure for other carriers to deliver across, and that will only accelerate the delivery of the new technology. All of this leads to more access to the internet and clouds, which speeds up working environments, gaming environments, the ability to do homework online, and so on. The possibilities are literally endless with this.

The biggest change to come in the FTTP arena, aside from the obvious switch-off, will be the TOTSCO switching process, which brings some regulation as to how we can switch FTTP between carriers and how the customer is looked after. Much like how broadband was regulated many years ago, this will bring some uniformity to how a customer can move between suppliers and ensure that they aren’t misled or duped by overzealous sales techniques. There is still a lot of work to do here, and I see some speed bumps on the road ahead, but all in all, I think this will be a great addition to the industry and will protect consumers, businesses, and ISP’s alike when we hit the full scale of FTTP in the UK.

What Do You Have to Say About Gigabit Network’s Market Position and Competitiveness? 

Tim: From a competitive point of view, I think we are able to punch way above our weight in this industry. The supplier relationships we have, the network we have built, and the commercials we have managed to secure allow us to compete with the big boys like Vodafone, Giacom and Talk Talk, but without the huge overheads and head counts that they have. Not only are we extremely competitive in the consumer space, but we are also able to be keen on pricing within the channel while being fleet of foot and able to offer true partnership options that you won’t get elsewhere. As a channel veteran, we all know that people buy people, and the fact that my sales team and I can give a real personal service pays dividends for us and is a real focus of our channel model moving forward.

As we progress through the end of 2023 and into 2024, we will continue to deliver cutting-edge products in terms of speed and availability, as well as adding additional carriers to the mix, which will continue to enhance our product range for consumers and channel partners alike. Watch this space for some exciting news on all fronts. Connectivity is key in our lives today, and we will aim to ensure that we can always deliver you the best options for any opportunity that you may stumble across.

Success breeds success, as we know, and all the above has led us to a few awards across the last few years: Channel Champions Marketing Team of the Year, Best ISP in the Midlands, Best Emerging ISP, Best Supplier of Urban Broadband—the list goes on. We are, of course, very proud of these awards, but that’s not what it is all about for us. Knowing that our customers are happy and that they have exceptional service from us is all we need to sleep well at night!

How Has Gigabit Network’s Partnerships and Collaborations Evolved Over the Years? 

Tim: Currently, we are partnered with CityFibre, Full Fibre, F&W Networks, BT Wholesale, and a few others, but this list will continue to grow as we do. Having supportive suppliers is one of the keys to our success; they have empowered us to grow and ensure that we are competitive in a tough landscape, and this has driven us to pay this forward to our customers. Above our suppliers, however, our channel partners are the lifeblood of all that we do. They enable us to reach opportunities that we would never get to on our own, and for this, we thank you. As always, the channel has embraced the new technologies that we deliver and consumes them at an incredible rate. They are passionate and enthusiastic about the future products that we are looking to deliver, and we are just as excited and enthusiastic to deliver them to you. 

The channel has led us to deliver some outstanding business, from a 24-site storage company to a 500-site coffee shop chain, all perfect examples of the power of the channel and the long-lasting relationships that those channel partners build with their clients. We would like to think that you could ask any of our channel partners what it is like to deal with Gigabit Networks and that they would all give a resounding excellent! But don’t take my word for it; if you would like to talk to a partner, let me know, and I can arrange a chat for you.

Share Your Thoughts About Your Future Outlook and Vision for the Business 

Tim: The future is bright for Gigabit Networks. Our mission statement is to be able to deliver sustainable next-generation broadband to all homes and businesses across the UK. We genuinely feel that a good FTTP connection is the last broadband connection you should ever need to buy. With the advent of 2.5Gb, 5Gb, and even 10Gb FTTP around the corner, the possibilities of what we can deliver are quite literally limitless! By the time we get to 2027, copper will be a thing of the past and the future will be solely glass fibre broadband, which means we are perfectly positioned to be one of the premier suppliers of these services to the UK channel as we evolve into that next iteration of what the UK communications industry looks like.

What Do You Think About Your Personal Growth and Leadership During This Period? 

Tim: From a personal perspective, working at Gigabit Networks has given me the chance to grow both personally and professionally. We are lucky enough to have an amazing owner and mentor here, and he has molded and shaped the SLT to be able to drive the business towards its goals while still giving us all the freedom to make informed decisions and ensure that we always have the business’s best interests at heart. I have certainly learned a lot from his style of leadership, and as such, I employ these management strategies with the staff that we have brought on board over the last two years.

In summary, the last two years have been an absolute roller coaster, but the type of ride that leaves you wanting to get straight back on and go again, but next time with bigger dips and more loop-de-loops! Gigabit Networks is a name that will be here to stay in the channel, and I would welcome anyone to come and speak to us about how we can work together and help bring the next generation of connectivity to your customer base.

How to enjoy stable internet prices, while others suffer with price hikes

It appears that beginning in April, the monthly rates of more than a million customers who use mobile phones and the internet would increase by over 14%. These customers will be affected by this change. According to an article published by the Guardian, this will put even greater strain on household budgets that are already being pushed to their breaking point by the general rising costs of living.

Large telecommunication providers such as BT, TalkTalk, Three, and Vodafone are permitted by contract to increase their costs by the same amount as inflation (as assessed by the December CPI) plus an additional 3% to 3.9%.

There are a number of industry analysts who believe that, if the price hikes are fully passed on, home internet customers will be required to pay an additional fifty pounds per year, and those who have expensive mobile phone contracts may be subject to hikes of more than one hundred pounds. Because these are price hikes that occur within the term of an existing contract, they will impact not just those persons who are in the market for a new contract but also almost everyone who utilises these services. Find more tips for saving here.

The good news is that even though these price increases are written into contracts, if you’ve completed the minimum term, there’s nothing preventing you from negotiating a lower price before the increase takes effect, which could result in you paying less in April than you do now. If there’s no headway in the negotiation, don’t worry, you can find better deals with us. 

At Gigabit we have a no price-hike guarantee, unlike other providers! This is one of the many reasons why we are considered the internet champions of the midlands.

How to upgrade to Gigabit

Here are the simple steps to switch to GigaFast broadband; a more reliable and consistent pricing service.

  • First, confirm that you are actually contract-free. Check all emails from your current Internet Service Provider, or call them and inquire.
  • If you are contract-free follow this link to check if your address is available for service.
  • If you still have a contract, call the service provider and tell them you want to cancel. You can be sure that they will try to find out why you want to leave. When you tell them you’ve found a better deal, they may try to keep you by making you similar deals. What’s the point of managing a bad service that changes all the time just because it’s cheaper for now?

FullFibre and Gigabit Networks to provide ultrafast broadband

Gigabit Networks is the latest Internet Service Provider (ISP) to join FullFibre’s partner programme to deliver ultrafast, reliable internet connections via the FullFibre network.

After successfully launching its digital revolution in the cities of Derby, Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham and Wolverhampton, Gigabit have set their sights on the neighbouring towns on FullFibre’s partner network.

This new partnership is an expansion to FullFibre’s ISP partner network and follows previous new partner announcements. With their focus on the Midlands, Gigabit Networks will augment FullFibre’s national offering regionally, with more choice for residents in the region seeking a high-quality residential broadband provider.

Commenting on the new partnership, Head of Wholesale at FullFibre, Matt Baker, said “With our national network growing at pace, it is really reassuring to be partnering with Gigabit Networks, who are known for providing quality internet services.

“This addition to our rapidly growing partner programme means we can offer even more choice to residents and businesses across the Midlands and supplements our overall offering in the 86 towns we operate in”.

David Yates, co-founder of Gigabit Networks also comments, “Having recently been voted ‘Best Internet Service Provider (ISP) in the Midlands’, Gigabit Networks is on a mission to empower the region with faster internet connectivity. This new partnership with FullFibre will help us to reach this goal and reflects our shared values when it comes to transforming lives through high-quality digital services”.

FullFibre is a wholesale telecoms network provider, operating under the customer-facing brand Fibre Heroes, to connect the historically overlooked towns of the UK with an ultrafast broadband connection.

The multi-award-winning Gigabit Networks is on a mission to empower the Midlands with faster internet connectivity and become the Midlands’ full fibre ISP. They aim to empower the Midlands with faster, future-proofed, ultra-reliable internet connectivity and unlock the possibilities that come with gigabit-capable fibre broadband.
