Next-generation connectivity for your business


(become a SoGEA and FTTP expert in 10 minutes)


Broadband and the state of digital today:

Social and economic disruption has had a dramatic impact on the way we work, live and play. Flexible working is now a reality for millions, and as more services go digital, the home has become a hub for both leisure and business. What’s more, cloud-based services are more popular than ever, enabling users to stream on-demand content and access business-ready productivity tools at any time and from anywhere.

To adapt to shifting digital trends and prepare for the WLR withdrawal and the 2025 analogue switch off, many will be seeking the connectivity needed to get on with life comfortably, and for businesses, a means to better serve their end customers.

That’s why we recommend two new connectivity products, each designed to meet different and specific customer needs and get ready for a future of IP-based connectivity.
