3 Things the Big Broadband Providers Don’t Want You to Know

Big broadband providers can be well known for their broken promises and shady contracts. It is often that they will say one thing, but it means another. This is where Gigabit comes in…

While you could always switch to Gigabit Networks for a hassle-free, price fixed contract, we know sometimes people are stuck in their broadband contracts for months or even years without the option to switch. 

So, if you’re currently in a contract and can’t switch to Gigabit, or looking at a contract with one of the big providers, we’ve put together a list of 3 things they don’t want you to know. 

We hope these tips can help you to better understand broadband contracts and where you can get caught out.

The ‘working hours’ trick 

Big providers such as Virgin are well-known for using the ‘working hours’ trick. By using this, broadband providers can offer a ‘72 working hours fix’ or ’48 working hours install’ this way it may look as though you can expect your fix in 3 days or install in two days.

This is a simple way that providers will attempt to catch you out. In reality, a 72 working hour fix equates to about 9 days, which of course they wouldn’t want to tell you.

So, while you may enter your contract thinking the wait times will be reasonable, when the time for your fix comes, you will quickly realise that your provider has used sly wording to catch you out!

They’re selling you ‘fibre broadband’ that isn’t really fibre broadband

Big providers love to throw the term ‘fibre broadband’ around. 

As a consumer, it’s hard to know about all of the complicated telecommunication’s jargon, so of course, you’re going to take what the big brands say as the truth.

Actually, fibre broadband as you know it, is probably what we like to call ‘fake fibre’. 

Fake fibre uses a part-fibre connection where the cabling from the exchange to the street cabinet is made from fibre and the cabling from the street cabinet to your home is actually copper. This intereferes with your connection, slows it down and shares it with your street.

The CityFibre infrastructure (used by Gigabit Networks) is completely made up of pure fibre, all the way from the exchange and straight to your home. 

Pure fibre is where the true magic happens and where you can get insanely fast speeds that also reduce your impact on the environment! 

For more on the relation between pure fibre and the environment read our blog Purefibre broadband – your path to a greener home

Your monthly bill is probably going to increase

You’re not naïve for thinking that the price you agree to pay for your broadband per month would stay the same throughout your entire contract. 

Of course, prices may increase in line with inflation when you switch to a new contract but surely the big providers wouldn’t just bump costs up on you mid-contract?

Unfortunately, they would…

In fact, this has probably happened to you already. 

As of the 1st of April, you may have noticed your broadband or mobile bill increase by as much as 11% due to inflation rates.

If you want to know if your provider can do this or not it’s important to read your terms and conditions. If you agree to the terms and conditions of a contract that states that it may increase your bill, then unfortunately you must pay that increase.

Certain providers, including us, have a promise that we won’t increase your prices mid-contract. That means, no matter what, you can expect to pay the exact same bill every month. No uncertainty. No sly contracts. Just good, honest speeds.

5 Top Tips for Optimising your Home Wi-Fi 

Bad WiFi signal can become frustrating especially when you’re paying for it, here are Gigabit’s five top tips on how to improve your home Wi-Fi:

  1. Check your wired internet connection:

Checking your wired connection to the router is often the first step to troubleshooting your Wi-Fi connection issues. Ensuring your wired ethernet connection is fully functioning, undamaged and checking the connection is not loose. Followed by a quick network configuration to search for the root cause of the problem should hopefully quickly and efficiently solve the problem. 

  1. Check your true broadband speed: 

Checking your broadband speeds is essential. The running of a speed test is the most efficient method to find out whether there’s an issue with the router itself or if the issues lay with your internet service provider (ISP).  

  1. Position your router in a central location: 

Changing the physical position of your network points and router can boost your signal, this is because the antenna located on the router box is what radiates the signal to connect to your home devices. 

Therefore, a central location will be the best fit between all devices within your home to try and achieve equal signal throughout the house. 

If the positioning of the router centrally cannot be facilitated it is important to ensure the router is not located at low positions such as on the floor, in a corner or directly next to any solid barriers as this becomes a barrier for the Wi-Fi signals to radiate through and connect to your home devices. 

You should aim for elevated positions for optimal stability and strength. 

  1. Use of router extenders: 

Use of a router extender allows you to shorten the WiFi distance between your devices and the router thereby extending the range of the wireless network increasing device speeds and improving performance. 

Router extenders can be convenient and budget friendly while successfully expanding your signal coverage in your home and eliminates WiFi dead zones. However, home users have to consider that the host factors can be limited if the original source (home router) signal is slow and weak. 

You should consider performing a speed test prior to purchasing a WiFi extender to ensure it will be beneficial and the actual signal strength isn’t the main issue.   

  1. Upgrade you router: 

You should consider upgrading the router for boosting your signal.  The replacement of the physical Wifi router can be beneficial as tech can become outdated, worn and broken which may reduce the stability and strength of your WiFi. Therefore upgrading can improve network functionality and enhance range/coverage. 

Thanks to UK’s most reliable broadband technology, Gigabit Networks can offer speeds of upto 930Mbps – 20x faster than the UK average. To switch to Gigabit today, simply visit our homepage.

How your SME can harness the power of the cloud – 3 important tools

In 2022 your small business must be digitally optimised, so if you aren’t already utilising the Cloud then why haven’t you caught up?

Getting used to new tech can be daunting at first, but the advantages the Cloud can have for your businesses are endless, and so many cloud-based tools are free. All you need is a good internet connection – but we’ve got you sorted there.

What is the Cloud?

In the digital space when we talk about the Cloud, we don’t mean the ones in the sky! 

The tech industry tends to make the Cloud sound like some ominous out-of-reach being that is far beyond anyone’s understanding – certainly not something to be used by a small business such as yours.

Realistically the Cloud is much less daunting than it seems. It is essentially a term for services and software run on the internet rather than being run on your computer, however most cloud services can be accessed through your computer aswell.

It’s likely you’re already using some Cloud services without knowing it. Tools such as Dropbox and Google Drive are well-known cloud services that many people and businesses use. 

Well, what can the Cloud do for my business?

Whether you’re an e-commerce business or you have a physical shop – there’s something the cloud can do for all of us. It could be organisation, back-ups or implementing a hybrid working model – the Cloud can help you do it all.

From accessing programmes to storing data, the uses of the Cloud are endless and can be very overwhelming. 

We have decided to handpick our top 3 Cloud tools that will help your small business get started. Couple these tools with a GigaFast connection and you’ll have everything you need to digitally optimise your small business.

Cloud storage – Google Drive

Cloud storage is where data and applications are stored on separate servers and accessed via the internet. 

This means you no longer have to worry about your computer or phone having enough storage, or a certain document only being on one device, the Cloud has that handled for you!

Having a Cloud storage solution also means you don’t ever have to worry about losing data or information, everything is stored away in the cloud where you can access it 24/7. 

You also won’t have to worry about massive filing cabinets or extra office space just for information, digital storage is the future.

Our favourite cloud storage tool is Google Drive. It is free to use and allows you to store files across all your devices in a simple and easy-to-use interface. These files can also be shared with team members or kept private if needed. A much easier alternative to passing papers around in meetings.

SaaS – Google Workspace

SaaS means software-as-a-service and is the future of working in the post-covid world. 

SaaS platforms will enable your business to function from your business site, from home or from anywhere in the world (as long as you have a device and a stable internet connection). 

Our favourite SaaS tool is the Google Workspace, you’re probably already aware of a few aspects of this suite of tools. It includes popular apps such as Gmail and Google Calendar. Google drive is also a part of Google Workspace – it’s amazing how much everything in the Cloud links together!

Google Workspace also includes other applications such as google docs, google sheets, google slides, google forms, google meets and more.

All of your work within these applications can sync up in your google drive and you can collaborate with other members of your team at any time. It is essentially a virtual workspace, making home and hybrid working so much easier – and best of all, it’s free!

Cloud hosting

Now, this tool may not be 100% relevant to every small business but if your website is giving you trouble, or if you find yourself with larger spikes of visitors, cloud website hosting might be the solution for you. 

This also might be a solution to think about for the future. As your small business grows, you’re going to need to eventually have a website with a larger capacity.

With shared website hosting, (what most people use) your server may be slow as it is shared with others. 

With dedicated hosting, you get an entire server to yourself, but as you can imagine, the costs aren’t very small business-friendly.

With cloud hosting, your website is hosted in the cloud – with virtual server space. This means bandwidth is spread across multiple servers essentially ruling out many issues that you may find with other web hosting alternatives. This solution is especially great if you use e-commerce.

Our favourite cloud hosting tool is Hostinger. At just £7.99 a month on a 48-month plan, their prices are extremely small business-friendly and they offer unlimited bandwidth, fast server speeds and an excess of other features.

Start the year as you mean to go on: #GetFitWithGiga

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.
