Timico Fibre Broadband
Timico Fibre Broadband, also known as Fibre To The Cabinet or FTTC, is specially designed to help businesses meet the ever growing requirements of bandwidth-hungry applications. With download speeds of up to 80Mbps and upload speeds of up to 20Mbps, this technology offers the kind of performance previously available only via costly private data circuits.
How does it work?
Fibre Broadband is delivered to your premises over a standard telephone line, just like ADSL. Unlike ADSL it utilises special equipment installed in your nearest BT street cabinet which is connected back to the local telephone exchange using high speed fibre optic cables. This means that the broadband signal only has to travel a short distance between your premises and the street cabinet and hence a much faster service is possible.
Benefits of Fibre Broadband
Fibre Broadband offers significantly faster download and, crucially, upload speeds than any other broadband service, enabling you to:
- Roll out remote and homeworking facilities to promote flexible working
- Utilise Hosted VoIP or SIP Trunk services
- Reduce internal IT costs by making use of hosted business applications such as Salesforce.com
The Timico difference
Unlike many service providers Timico only provide broadband to business customers. We are focused on delivering a high quality network that is reliable, resilient and built to cope with high demand. This means that you will always receive the best data speeds that your line can achieve without being constrained by the limitations of the service provider's network.
Timico can provide a range of solutions designed to help you make the most of your Fibre Broadband line including Hosted VoIP, SIP Trunks, Colocation, VPN and data storage.
Timico's business strength broadband solutions offer superior service and no network contention, ensuring the fastest possible DSL connectivity.
Timico offer as standard a DSL connection to the 21st Century Network in areas where it is available. This delivers download speeds of up to 16Mbps and up to 1Mbps upload speeds.
For those customers in areas where the 21CN is not available, Timico still offers standard ADSL Max and Max Premium services which deliver download speeds of up to 8Mbps, with an ADSL Max upload speed of up to 448kbps* and Max Premium of up to 832kbps* upstream.
*Actual speeds depend on the distance you are from the local BT exchange.
Please note: To install ADSL, a BT analogue phone line is required.
Our DSL broadband services also form an integral part of our larger networking solutions such as Private Wide Area Networks (PWAN), for customers looking to connect multiple sites without wanting to manage individual VPNs at each site.
Bonded broadband lets you join (or bond) two or more broadband connections together to form one combined high speed managed connection using MLPPP (Multi-Link Point-to-Point Protocol), to increase both your download and upload capability.
This solution has been very popular for businesses that require high capacity internet connectivity with added resiliency for applications such as VPN traffic or multimedia solutions, or accommodating the connectivity requirements of a large office.
Bonding offers the perfect solution to businesses requiring higher bandwidth, with extra resiliency and a heightened SLA without the high costs of a leased line connection, or the limitations of a single broadband circuit, although the use of Fibre Broadband and Ethernet services is becoming more prevalent in this area as costs come down.
