Channel Live 2018 review: Our message – Fibre up!

Posted on Sep 26 2018 by Darren Farnden | Comments Off on Channel Live 2018 review: Our message – Fibre up!

Channel Live 2018 proved to be a great event for Entanet and CityFibre as we took our powerful ‘Fibre Up!’ message to the channel during a busy two days the NEC in Birmingham.

Now in its second year, the leading channel focused ICT trade exhibition once again proved to be a great platform to speak to potential new partners and existing customers about our exciting strategy to build full fibre to 5M premises by 2025 – and critically how they can take advantage of the significant opportunities this is opening up across the UK.

The Digital Revolution – What did the Victorians ever do for us?

Posted on Aug 29 2018 by Guest | Comments Off on The Digital Revolution – What did the Victorians ever do for us?

With the Government and OFCOM in agreement that investment in full fibre infrastructure is essential to the future of the UK economy, our latest guest blog from Alan Fletcher, Business Development Manager at KMi, part of The Open University, draws parallels between the current ‘Digital Revolution’ and our industrial past to ask what we can learn from our Victorian pioneers?

To be fair, it’s not just the Victorians we can learn from. The much longer period from 1700 to 1870 (starting some 137 years before Victoria came to the throne) saw fundamental economic and societal changes that we now refer to as the Industrial Revolution and the Transport Revolution. Okay, so 170 years is a long time and you should expect to see some changes over that period, right? Actually, there are pockets of rapid (given the available technology) expansion during the period in question which evidence mass adoption and significant investment in change, over much shorter periods of time.

Visit Channel Live 2018 and drive success for your business

Posted on Aug 22 2018 by Darren Farnden | Comments Off on Visit Channel Live 2018 and drive success for your business

On 11th and 12th September Channel Live will be held at the NEC, Birmingham and Entanet will be exhibiting there on stand 458. It’s an exciting place to be if you have an important message for the channel, and a great place to go if you’re seriously looking to grow a profitable connectivity reseller business. Following the success of last year’s first ever Channel Live, we’re expecting this year’s to be even better. Product launches and demos, an informative seminar programme and a chance to speak to all of the key channel players – what a great environment!

Our big push

We believe the intensifying message around the absolute need for full fibre connectivity for the success of the UK’s digital economy (and indeed its survival) is a critical one to emphasise to visitors at Channel Live. We’re bringing the full fibre opportunity to the channel and we’re in a unique position to do so. As a part of CityFibre, we’re building the UK’s alternative wholesale network, using our own full fibre infrastructure to bring Gigabit connectivity to 5 million premises by 2025.

Guest Blog – Fighting for full fibre

Posted on Aug 01 2018 by Guest | Comments Off on Guest Blog – Fighting for full fibre
Vicky Read

Vicky Read, CityFibre

Our colleagues at CityFibre are taking the ASA (Advertising Standards Authority) to court over the use of ‘fibre’ in advertising for part-fibre or ‘hybrid’ broadband connections, arguing that this term misleads consumers and will risk millions missing out on the benefits of “full fibre”, just at the point these enhanced networks at set to be built across the country. This action has been sanctioned by the High Court, who have granted permission for CityFibre to take the ASA’s original ruling to judicial review.

Victoria Read, Senior Policy and Public Affairs Manager at CityFibre explains why this legal challenge is so important for the channel and consumers and the potential impact that could be felt if the rules are not changed.

To win new business in the UK’s fast moving connectivity market it’s crucial resellers have quick and easy access to information on the price and availability of cutting edge Ethernet products.

Working together with our partners Entanet has developed a comprehensive Ethernet Quoting Tool (EQT) to do just that and a number of recent exciting enhancements have been added to put even more power in the hands of the reseller:

1. API

A key development has been the creation of an API where our partners can integrate their own quoting systems with our EQT making the whole process of quoting and provisioning our services for the customer even more seamless.

Channel Live: Why it’s definitely worth the trip

Posted on Aug 31 2017 by Darren Farnden | Comments Off on Channel Live: Why it’s definitely worth the trip

The industry has an all new, exciting and free-to-attend exhibition, Channel Live. It’s brought to you by Swink Events – the people behind Comms Business and the previous Convergence Summits (North and South), but this year it’s a single, centrally located event held at the NEC, Birmingham and it’s all taking place on 12-13th September. So, what’s new and why is it an event not to miss?

In terms of what’s new across the entire event, you can get all the details at www.channel-live.co.uk but to summarise, it offers an ideal opportunity to meet suppliers across the communications channel as well as a compelling seminar and panel debate programme. Entanet and CityFibre are both key ‘must see’ participants in the programme – on Wednesday 13th at Noon, Entanet CEO Elsa Chen will debate ‘value’ in the changing landscape of wholesale network providers with industry peers; while at 2.15pm, in a session that’s sure to be standing room only, CityFibre CEO Greg Mesch will sit alongside Openreach to discuss the building of wholesale networks in a digital world.
