Commsworld plugs broadband market gap

Commsworld claims to have plugged a gap in the market for businesses weighing up their options between broadband that fails to meet their needs at busier times or paying for more expensive dedicated leased lines.

The Edinburgh-based business says its launch of Ethernet over Fibre to the Premises (EoFTTP), a business-grade broadband service that delivers fibre optic connectivity with minimum bandwidth assurances and fast repair times in the event of a fault.

Commsworld says EoFTTP guarantees 100 Mbps as a minimum and is burstable to 1 Gbps.

Commsworld’s EoFTTP leverages FTTP coverage from a number of network builders including Openreach and CityFibre as well as Commsworld's own fibre infrastructure across Scottish cities and large areas in Northumberland.

Commsworld plans to add additional alternative network operators to extend coverage of EoFTTP in the coming months.

Charlie Boisseau (pictured), Chief Technology Officer, Commsworld, said: “The lack of a quality option that sits in the middle of the market for business is a problem that has persisted for years but hasn't been filled due to lack of fibre infrastructure.

"Commsworld’s EoFTTP leverages the growing abundance of this new FTTP coverage across multiple operators to fill that gap, especially for SMEs that do not need the top-end service more suited to bigger corporates.”

Andrew Wilson, Sales Director – Business, CityFibre, added: “Commsworld has identified a gap in the market and the launch of this new offering looks to address that void.”
