Dorset and Wiltshire ISP Wessex Internet Boosts Fibre Optic Capacity

Monday, November 3rd, 2014 (4:34 pm) - Score 631

Rural ISP Wessex Internet, which offers superfast wireless broadband (30Mbps+) and some ultrafast (100Mbps) fibre optic services to homes and businesses in parts of North Dorset and South West Wiltshire (Southern England), is about to commission a new Internet backhaul link that will more than double their capacity and support the on-going “influx” of new customers.

Wessex Internet’s service appears to have become quite popular with locals, so much so that nobody has taken advantage of their money back guarantee for new installations and the ISPs client retention record remains at 100%. But they’re also planning for the future and to take on the state aid (BDUK) fuelled roll-out of BTOpenreach’s rival FTTC services.

Andrew Skipsey, MD of Wessex Internet, told ISPreview.co.uk:

With the addition of the backhaul we’ll be able to take on the telecoms giants who will eventually market in and around our towns and villages when most of the new green cabinets are eventually made live. Until then, we know we have to keep up our pace of geographic growth to get Superfast connectivity to businesses and communities who can only receive dire speeds today.

Unfortunately, because we receive no grant money we have to carefully manage each area of growth. We know that as time has passed, we have more than proved the quality and value of our service, most clients are making significant savings as well.

We believe we are genuinely a better option than the services delivered by old copper wire where unless you pay extra, your service might take days to fix. We design in technical resilience and every home and business can be remotely accessed to resolve technical matters quickly should they arise.”

Overall the ISP has now installed around 75kms of fibre optic cable and continues to roll-out more.
