BROADBAND

Being able to depend on a reliable, high-performance broadband connection is a vital and integral operational necessity for most businesses. Regardless of sector and how or where they trade, there is an ever-increasing reliance on resilient internet connectivity for vital business operations, from day-to-day communications and the exchanging of information, or transacting with customers and clients, to ensuring that the business can meet the demands of the recent surge in remote/flexible working and is able adapt to sudden changes with ease.
Here at Chilli Comms, we offer a wide range of broadband services to meet the varying needs of businesses of any size, at any stage in their journey, with adaptable solutions that deliver the absolute best connectivity speeds available at your location, at extremely competitive prices.

Our range of broadband services include:

FTTC

Fibre To The Cabinet

What is FTTC? In a nutshell, FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) broadband uses a fibre optic connection from the service provider to the cabinets (the green ones you see in many streets), with copper wire providing the connection from the cabinet to your premises.

FTTC is the most common and therefore most cost-effective broadband offering.

SOGEA FTTC

Single Order Generic Ethernet Access

SoGEA is the evolutionary, rather than revolutionary, next generation of FTTC.  Until now there has been a dependency on the installation of a traditional phone line to facilitate the delivery of broadband to a home or office. With SoGEA FTTC, the broadband connection isn’t delivered over a traditional phone line. Instead, a SoGEA FTTC broadband connection is delivered over a dedicated, stand-alone line. The key benefit of this is that it means that you do not need to pay for a traditional phone line when you don’t need one. And if you required a phone line, this can be provisioned by way of VOIP (link to hosted page)

G-Fast

What is G-Fast?

G-Fast is an enhanced FTTC connection. The enhancement is normally made at the cabinet (the green cabinet in the street) which results in the delivering of a much faster and more reliable broadband service.

Speeds of up to 7x faster than standard FTTC

FTTP

Fibre To The Premises

Fibre To The Premises (FTTP) is a pure fibre optic connection not only to the exchange, but from it too, directly into your premises. As fibre optic is a next-generation delivery method compared with copper, it can handle much faster broadband speeds but is available only to a premise located in areas that have been enabled for FTTP.  Another massive advantage of next-gen fibre optic over copper is that it doesn’t degrade over time, so not only does it deliver data faster, but it is also considerably more reliable than a FTTC connection.

Speeds up to 330Mbs (download) and 30Mbs (Upload)

Ultrafast FTTP

Ultrafast FTTP broadband offers the fastest internet connection currently available in UK homes. As the term “ultrafast” typically refers to a broadband connection which provides download speeds from 500Mbs to 1Gb and upload speeds of up to 200Mbs, Ultrafast FTTP is also perfectly suited for businesses with a need for ultrafast, reliable internet connectivity.

Ethernet First Mile

Fibre To The Premises

Sometimes referred to as EFM or Ethernet Internet, Ethernet First Mile is a cost-effective alternative to a full fibre leased line. By utilising multiple copper cables, download and upload speeds far in excess of those delivered by “standard” broadband connections are achieved.

Other than improved download speeds, what are the other benefits of EFM?

One of the key benefits of EFM is that the upload speed mirrors that of the download speed. With most other broadband options, upload speeds are significantly lower than download speeds. If your business regularly uploads large volumes of data or uses a broadband connection for voice communications, the upload speed of your connection is as important a consideration as the download speed.
With greater geographical availability than a full fibre leased line, an EFM enjoys the same benefits of being a fully managed service, delivering the flexibility of being able to increase your connection speed as your requirements change, along with enhanced SLAs.

Leased Lines

Fibre To The Premises

Leased lines are a dedicated fibre optic connection straight to the centre of your operation. Offering the fastest download and mirrored upload speeds available, together with greatly enhanced SLAs, leased lines are the pinnacle of broadband connectivity options.

 

Leased lines must be expensive then?

As you would expect for a top-of-the range service provision, a higher cost is associated with a leased line. However, where fast, reliable download and upload speeds are vital to your business, a leased line is a no-compromise solution, with the added assurance this option brings to your company justifying the additional premium.

SD-WAN

What is SD-Wan?

A Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is a virtual WAN architecture that allows enterprises to leverage any combination of internet connection transport services – including MPLS, LTE and broadband internet services – to securely connect users to applications.

An SD-WAN uses a centralized control function to securely and intelligently direct traffic across the WAN. This increases application performance and delivers a high-quality user experience, resulting in increased business productivity, greater business agility and reduced IT costs.
