Does big brand trust blind your judgement of internet service jargon?

Don’t be blinded by big brands – assess brand trust vs jargon

Things go wrong sometimes. 

Some ISPs do not understand the urgency for businesses to have reliable internet access with a quick fix. In the UK, 99% of businesses claim that a reliable internet connection is important.

An example of a real broadband product on the market that seems like great value for money, promises reliable customer service and a short 48 hour fix time. 

After digging deeper into their terms and conditions however, it can be noted that these 48 hours are business hours. This means the actual length of time a business could be left without an internet connection is as long as 6 days. 

If this period happens to fall on a Friday, your business could be waiting for over a week to get back online. 

For businesses that rely on their internet connection, this is simply not viable.

48 hours working hours vs the proper stopwatch 

That’s where we differ. 

With all of Gigabit Networks’ products you can rest easy knowing we provide rapid, same day fixes if your internet goes down. 

As part of our services, we provide a 99.9% up-time guarantee, with a 6 hour guaranteed fix 24/7

When you’re switched on, so are we, no matter what day of the week. We are dedicated to keeping your business up and running with turbocharged speeds, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

2021 – The year of digital

Now more than ever, the importance of access to online services has become paramount in the world of business. Covid-19, the widespread availability of affordable technology and the downfall of the UK high street have massively boosted online activity. 

Some internet service providers (ISPs) in the UK have seen a double-digit increase in broadband usage this year compared to “normal” workdays. 

There are tens of thousands of businesses in the UK that need a reliable internet connection to operate to their full potential.

To make sure you’re always connected at guaranteed speeds, check your availability for our game-changing Ethernet Flex here.

ISPs – you get what you pay for

ISPs

When it comes to internet service providers, you get what you pay for. 

It is estimated that over 10m people in the UK are paying too much for their internet service, partly by not switching providers at the end of their contract not knowing what options are actually available on the market.

These internet connections are also often slow and powered by outdated copper wiring, despite ISPs promising pure-fibre speeds.

Some of the major ISPs on the market offer similar business products to Gigabit Networks’ game-changing ethernet GigaFlex, at prices ranging from £279 to over £400 a month.

This is up to £150 extra per month, with hidden T’s & C’s and complex jargon to add to the confusion of “which service is best for my business?”.

Ethernet Flex

With our pure-fibre GigaFlex package your business will not only be receiving some of the best quality and value for money internet speeds in the B2B market, but also the following:

  • Guaranteed 6 hour fix time
  • 24/7 customer support
  • Up to £2,500 towards installation costs
  • Extremely low latency
  • MINIMUM 200mbps internet speeds, even during peak times

You get what you pay for – and way more for less money.

The Need for Productivity-Boosting, Gigabit Internet Speeds in the UK

With internet usage more than doubling in 2020, it has come to light how impactful the pandemic was on our independent internet activity.  

“Stay Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives”. The message was clear, and we have worked together to save as many as we could at the expense of our freedom.  

Yet almost a year after the UK’s first lockdown, the country has now entered its third. 

Having spent months and months stuck inside their homes, the internet has become a channel to regains some of the freedoms people were missing. 

Shopping, socialising, entertaining, teaching, working. The essential day-to-day activities that required people to be out and about all became digital in 2020.  

Has the pandemic changed how we fundamentally complete these tasks?  

With many curious what will happen after the pandemic, it has become obvious that the nations usage of the internet won’t slow down. But why should it?  

On one hand, the internet has helped to provide comfort in a time of crisis; it has improved communications in health care settings when it was needed the most; and it shown many that they can work from home just as effectively as they could in the office. 

On the other, it has shown us that a slow or unreliable internet connection can lead to frustration, isolation and lack of productivity in the virtual workplace.    

In fact, a recent study by OnePoll showed that slow or unreliable internet connectivity resulted in an average loss of 1 week of productivity per employee per year. 

Our Commitment to Productivity, Reliability and Speed 

As we are transitioning into this new, digital era, it will be essential to ensure that everybody has access to internet that is productive, reliable, and speedy – what we pride ourselves for at Gigabit Networks.

And it’s not just our prices that are fantastic – all of our services come with 24/7 support, guaranteed uptime SLA and a 6-hour guaranteed fix, so the reliability is amazing too. 

The growth and expansion of internet usage in the UK is on a huge upward trajectory, showing no signs of slowing down – and with new COVID work restrictions in place, is there a better time to get ahead of the game and upgrade your internet? 

Enquire with us today and have your chosen Ethernet internet package installed and ready to use when your staff are back in the office. Don’t fall victim to time-wasting internet – prepare for the post-COVID world and supercharge your employees’ productivity with superfast, reliable internet.

Are you getting ripped off on ethernet internet fees?

Ethernet fibre internet circuits are now way cheaper than they used to be.  

Even just a few years ago, you could easily have paid in excess of £1000 a month for a 1Gbps fibre connection.

But the game has changed.  

Advances in fibre ethernet technology and availability throughout the UK mean that fibre is not only more abundant and reliable – but a lot less expensive than it has been

This means companies can get more bandwidth, productivity and digital oomph – for a lot less money. And 2021 is a great year to be looking for budget efficiencies. 

CityFibre’s brand new fibre network is totally independent of BT. It has the latest technology to drive it and comes with a 100% uptime guarantee. 

We came across one charity in the Midlands that was paying £800 a month for a 100Mb ‘business’ line.

There is something not quite right about that… 

Market Speeds Vs Prices 

It is worth seeking out the best quality connectivity – especially where critical business functions must not fail. Only a dedicated service will provide guaranteed speeds and great reliability. 

But don’t be fooled into thinking that market has not moved much.  

It has. 

In fact, in some cases, we have seen companies buy three new gigabit circuits with guaranteed speeds and better reliability agreements for the price of one old-school circuit from the traditional vendors. 

Also consider ‘advertised speed’ vs ‘actual speeds’, which are often much lower. You can’t accept that as more business relies on fast connections.  

If you’re not getting the full service as advertised, your business is getting ripped off. Now is the time to make a change. 

Gigabit Networks Delivers A Better Solution 

Internet connectivity tech is now going to evolve at a much faster rate in the UK.   

If your organisation took out a deal at £800 per month for each gigabit on its fibre ethernet circuits two or three years ago, you’d have been ecstatic with that price.  

Thankfully, that is all changing with the CityFibre network

The network uses advanced tech to make ethernet circuits cheaper and more reliable. Gigabit Networks helps you unlock the full potential of the latest advancements by delivering a fast internet service that is tailored specifically to your business, providing dedicated bandwidth (up to 10gbps) that is set by you. 

Crucially, those speeds are guaranteed in both directions (uploads and downloads) and the price includes 24/7 monitoring and management as well as a 5 hour guaranteed fix time at a price point of around 50% of similar offerings. 

In an age where our reliance on reliable and fast internet connections is greater than ever, paying less could so easily buy you more productivity and help to transform the future of your company forever.

Gigabit Networks Helps Strengthen 21st Century Comms with Acquisition of Skyline Wireless

Gigabit Networks is delighted to announce the acquisition of Suffolk-based telecoms and VOIP provider Skyline Wireless, together providing greater connectivity and internet in areas of the UK that have struggled for bandwidth.

“We’re delighted Skyline is joining the Gigabit family. The pandemic has created massive demand for faster and better-quality connectivity. We can now not only make central city businesses faster, but more rural areas too.”

Dan Ilett, CEO of Gigabit Networks

Skyline is a specialist provider of ‘last mile’ wireless internet connectivity via radio and 4/5G networks, as well as cloud-based services and security products to SME businesses.

Services provided by Skyline include Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) – part of a global industry trend towards cloud services, also known as digital transformation – and Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) – a technology that allows you to make voice calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of a regular phone line.

“The Midlands is one of the most exciting places in the UK to do business right now as the connectivity potential is huge. Most people in the Midlands haven’t realised the potential speeds and technology that are now available to them. Together Gigabit and Skyline will change that.”

David Yates, CEO of 4 Oceans Venture Capital and key investor in Gigabit Networks

Internet usage has increased by 47% as more businesses move operations online in 2020, skyrocketing the need for the most up-to-date and reliable digital infrastructure across the UK.

Gigabit Networks and Skyline Wireless are collaboratively making it easier for businesses anywhere to access modern, ultrafast and affordable internet.

Don’t sleep walk into a speed limit – check “up-to” vs “guaranteed”

It’s easy to sign away your internet speed rights. Research shows that 91% of the broadband market is supplied and represented by the 5 largest ISPs by market share

But when you check the fine print of some of the big brand internet products, you’d be shocked what people sign up to. 

Consumers spend as little as 11 minutes a day making purchase decisions, which is unlikely to be enough time to decipher the jargon.

Speeds of “up-to”

Take the difference between “up-to” and “guaranteed” internet speeds – “up-to” is used to describe the maximum speed of an internet service, so it’s likely you won’t be hitting that for a portion of your connection. 

One example of a real broadband product that does this offers businesses download speeds of “up to 350mbps”. But when you look at the fine print, it shows the minimum download and upload you will receive is actually half of the advertised speeds – 175mbps download and 7mbps upload.

Sneaky. And perhaps one of the reasons the UK comes 47th in the ranking of broadband speeds worldwide.

 

Guaranteed speeds 

Gigabit Networks differs in this respect by instead offering you a minimum speed for ethernet products which is guaranteed at all times, even during peak internet usage hours. 

For example, our most popular product “Ethernet Flex” guarantees your business a minimum speed of 200mbps both ways (upload and download). With this product you also get the option to boost your speed when you need it the most for no extra cost, to 1Gbps.

That is the Gigabit Networks pure-fibre difference. 

 

When choosing an ISP, you get what you pay for and we recommend you carefully read the terms and conditions and fully understand what you’re receiving of your internet product before you purchase.
