LONDON – CityFibre, the UK's third national digital infrastructure platform, has appointed Windsor Telecom as a City Champion for Reading, Maidenhead, Slough, and Bracknell – continuing its commitment to driving the full fibre message out to as many businesses as possible in the region.
For Windsor Telecom, the agreement provides the opportunity to offer the fast speeds and reliability of full fibre to its customers at an attractive price; a proposition that companies in these four economically-strong areas will welcome.
Andrew Wilson, Head of Wholesale for CityFibre, said: "We're pleased to welcome Windsor Telecom as a City Champion. We've made significant investments to bring full fibre to the Thames Valley area and want to do everything we can to give businesses the opportunity to take advantage. With its strong reputation and presence in the region, Windsor Telecom is ideally-placed to help us reach our goals and make use of CityFibre's full fibre infrastructure to deliver the bandwidth and performance that companies need to compete effectively."
Pete Tomlinson, CEO at Windsor Telecom added: "In our goal to provide businesses with easy-to-use and value-driven technology solutions, we're delighted to add CityFibre full fibre to our propositions. Over the past year, with people getting increasingly reliant on cloud-based solutions, we've all experienced first-hand the challenges that come from poor connectivity. As people start to move back to the office environment, now is the perfect time to ensure that you’re maximising the connectivity speeds available to you at the best price. We’re confident that our role as CityFibre champion enables us to provide exactly that service."
In the next few months, Windsor Telecom and CityFibre will be working together to inform businesses in the Thames Valley of the potential full fibre brings to them, and to provide professional deployment, activation, and support services to customers.
According to a new batch of Ookla Speedtest data, median speeds for the satellite broadband service temporarily dipped then climbed again. Meanwhile, the service's burst speeds appear to be on the rise.
Upstream consumption climbed 63% last year as peak usage shifted to business hours and away from a pre-pandemic surge typically seen during prime time. The nature of upstream usage has likely changed forever, OpenVault says.
Today’s access network architecture is under mounting pressure due to a continued surge in the number of connected devices, a proliferation of bandwidth-intensive customer applications and dramatic shifts in usage patterns related to the pandemic, such as work-from-home and e-learning.
