Why SMEs should think about full fibre today!

Posted on Jul 25 2019 by Matthew Dyke | Comments Off on Why SMEs should think about full fibre today!

Matthew Dyke –
Business Development Consultant

As we move to an increasingly digital Britain the way the nation is consuming goods and services is changing at pace – which means the need for businesses to be forward-thinking and look for faster and smarter ways to operate is key – what underpins this digital revolution is ultra-fast and resilient full fibre connectivity.

The recent woes of household retailers like HMV, Toys R Us and BHS serve as the perfect illustration of the consequences when companies are slow to embrace digital change. The Royal Mail’s 2018 Delivery Matters UK Report also highlights that proportion of UK shoppers choosing to spend their money online is now 87%, meaning there is less place than ever for slow and ineffective connectivity in our modern e-commerce driven economy.

UK geo – are their days numbered?

Posted on Apr 29 2019 by Paul Heritage-Redpath | Comments Off on UK geo – are their days numbered?
Categories : Blog, Full fibre, VoIP

Local numbers when making a call seem like second nature to us these days. To many of us, it’s hard to think of a time before area codes were shown as they are now.

Area codes were introduced in 1958 back when we were able, for the first time, to call another phone number directly rather than through a manual exchange operator. It then took over 20 years to allocate exchange codes to every exchange in the country, completing this in 1979.

Putting Gigabit connectivity in the reach of SMEs

Posted on Mar 28 2019 by Paul North | Comments Off on Putting Gigabit connectivity in the reach of SMEs

There is little doubt that the growth and prosperity of small and medium-sized businesses in the UK has been stifled for some time by slow and unreliable connectivity.

Our economy is increasingly being driven by digital innovation, yet many SMEs see Ethernet and other business boosting full fibre solutions as too costly an option to consider.

The national picture painted by Ofcom also makes stark reading – its latest figures highlight that only 6% of the country can currently access full fibre technology, meaning these solutions are often seen by SMEs as beyond their reach too!

Rachel Shropshire, Service Manager

Our ambitious investment programme to help deliver a truly digital Britain that’s fit for modern business isn’t just about putting physical fibre infrastructure in the ground. It’s also making sure the innovative products and services our future proof network offers to channel partners and their customers is underpinned by the highest levels of customer service.

The recent announcement of the first £1.12bn rollout of our £2.5bn investment plan, identifying 37 towns and cities where we already have critical fibre spine assets primed for full city expansion to deliver the UK’s most advanced and intelligent full fibre network, is certainly turning heads and grabbing the headlines. However we understand that to fully deliver on our partners’ needs, we also need to continue evolving the way we work to make the experience of dealing with us as simple and as efficient as possible.

Bringing our compelling full fibre message to you

Posted on Feb 01 2019 by Paul North | Comments Off on Bringing our compelling full fibre message to you
Categories : Blog, CityFibre, Fibre, Full fibre, Sales

Our ‘Shaping Britain’s Full Fibre Future’ roadshows have proved a fantastic opportunity to speak to lots of success-hungry channel partners across the UK in recent months about our exciting full fibre message…and more importantly the difference it can make to them and their customers if they look to drive sales where full fibre already exists rather than waiting for it to come to the markets they traditionally sell in.

We’ve already engaged with over 100 representatives from our existing and potential channel partners since kicking off our roadshows in May and what is clear is that there is a real appetite to seize first-mover advantage in the lucrative full fibre markets within our Gigabit cities.

As 2018 draws to a close, we reflect on what has been an exciting year for Entanet and take a look back at the highlights that we’ve put into the spotlight.

Some of the key topics we’ve covered throughout the year include our compelling full fibre message which we’ve taken on the road through our ‘Shaping Britain’s Full Fibre Future’ roadshows and the launch of our exciting THRIVE! partner programme.

We’ve also had our finger on the legal pulse as we scrutinised the impact on the channel of the Investigatory Powers Act (IPA) and of course…GDPR! We would like to say a massive thank you for keeping up with our opinion blog throughout 2018. We hope you enjoy your Christmas break and look forward to your continued comments and feedback in 2019!

Posted on Dec 10 2018 by Paul Heritage-Redpath | Comments Off on Cultivating a culture of continuous improvement to drive Britain’s full fibre future

The UK’s connectivity market is seeing exciting times as the country fibres up to meet the needs of modern commerce. Leading the charge in this digital revolution are those service providers that adopt a forward thinking and innovative approach to their business.

Our channel partners have an incredible opportunity to make the government’s ambitious target of connecting 15 million premises to full fibre by 2025 a reality, and significantly grow their own business in the process.

SD-WAN or MPLS – that is the question?

Posted on Nov 21 2018 by Lee Hill | Comments Off on SD-WAN or MPLS – that is the question?

Lee Hill

Lee Hill, Pre-Sales Technical Manager

Entanet works with a wide range of partners bidding for more complex network solutions – these highly profitable opportunities open up the chance to package a complete service including data and voice connectivity, firewalls and hosting, all from one supplier.

In this highly competitive and rapidly evolving connectivity landscape, Software Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) has emerged as an alternative corporate network technology to MPLS, but in reality the direct comparison is false because whilst both solutions link sites together the underlying technologies behind them are very different.
