Faster Britain reaches businesses across Newham, Tower Hamlets and Hackney

Businesses can now access transformational full fibre connectivity and broadband services.

ITS Technology Group’s (ITS) Faster Britain full fibre UK-wide rollout has now passed a further 21,000 businesses across Hackney, Newham, and Tower Hamlets ensuring they are able to take full advantage of game-changing cloud technologies and are copper-switch off ready.

More than 200,000 businesses across 29 of the 32 boroughs of London can now access flexible, futureproof gigabit-capable connectivity. These services are available through ITS’ Faster Britain approved reseller, internet and service provider partners who also offer a substantial portfolio of cloud-services and business applications.

Imdadur Rahman, Faster Britain Ambassador for London at ITS said: “We are proud to be part of the movement to upgrade the UK’s communications infrastructure. Full fibre is a catalyst for creativity, innovation, and delivers significant productivity gains, boosting the local economy.

Many UK businesses are currently paying a substantial price in productivity losses as a result of working around slow and unreliable broadband services, including superfast, that rely on the legacy copper networks which are set to be retired over the next few years. The analogue switch off of copper telephony services is planned for 2025.

Our investment to deliver gigabit-capable infrastructure is helping to address the pent up demand for reliable, flexible, ultrafast services. Faster Britain will benefit a host of established and growing sectors including manufacturing, professional services, scientific, and technical organisations, driving business growth and investment.”

The same physical Faster Britain connection can take a customer from a basic full fibre broadband service through to a 10Gbps connection, growing and flexing with business demands.

The entire network benefits from the latest full fibre technology. Not only does this support multi-gigabit symmetrical speeds, but it is also a far more energy efficient and sustainable networking solution compared to older technology. Our ‘dig once’ approach to reusing existing ducts to install the fibre optic cables reduces the environmental impact of building our infrastructure, as well as the disruption that is normally associated with a construction project of this scale.
