Fibre to the premises (FTTX)
Creating a Digital Britain
Fibre is now key in meeting the demand for next generation access for both consumers and businesses. No longer is fibre a pipe dream. Superfast broadband is already here…now it’s a question of bringing fibre to the front door…
Fibre to the home (FTTH)
As consumers become more and more tech savvy, 21st century technology and communications once found only in headquarters of blue chip corporates are now reaching the homes of generation X. High definition TV, VOIP and online video streaming are becoming common place in homes. These data heavy technologies, combined with the increasing demand for instant access, are highlighting the inadequacies of the UK’s existing communications infrastructure. Copper-based broadband laid in the 20th century is unable to cater for today’s burgeoning bandwidth needs. With the UK government committed to bringing broadband across the UK, an aging communications infrastructure is feeling the strain.
Fibre to the Premises (FTTP)
The global recession is pairing both existing and emerging economies against each other to lure global investment to their locations. As new office complexes continue to materialise across city skylines, regional administrations are vying for corporate occupants to fill these. But apart from next generation fixtures and fittings and accessible transport infrastructure, today’s businesses are looking for locations that can meet their critical business needs. Data centre connectivity and network infrastructure cannot be overlooked when attracting regional investment.
The Geo difference
Geo’s fibre network reaches across over 3,000kms in the UK. We have the UK’s newest network with enhanced reliability and security, as the network runs alongside the national gas pipeline and deep in London’s sewer network. But you’d like to know whether our network is playing a part in bringing FTTP and FTTH. It has and does. Geo partnered with the Welsh Assembly Government in a pioneering project in North Wales which resulted in the launch of FibreSpeed – 320km of fibre from Holyhead to Manchester, providing affordable high-quality communications services. Homes and businesses across the region are benefitting from next generation access. Geo is also currently working on a pilot project with the Manchester Digital Development Agency to provide a communications network in the Oxford Road area of the city, which houses some of the city’s heaviest data users.
What our Clients say
Geo delivered the complete network, but it was their approach to commercialisation that really cemented the deal. The FibreSpeed model encourages new business and generates competition to deliver tangible economic benefits to Wales.
