fibre optic lines meet uk network cables

A new partnership between SSE Enterprise Telecoms and Sky Business (Sky Broadband) has today been signed, which will see the two working together to deliver high-capacity and cost effective Ethernet data connectivity to businesses across the United Kingdom.

The deal combines Sky’s nationwide telecoms and data network with SSE’s expansive fibre optic network to reach in excess of 3,000 UK exchanges. Sky will provide SSE with backhaul and last-mile services enabling their 200+ service provider customers to benefit from more choice and a wider reaching capability.

The solution, which also utilise SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ dedicated support team, supports a resilient network and automatic re-routing of traffic to limit disruption.

David Rey, MD of Sky Business, said:

“We’re excited to be partnering with SSE Enterprise Telecoms who, like Sky, take customer experience very seriously. We wanted a partner who could deliver service excellence whilst leveraging the network Sky has proudly built. By joining forces, we are helping UK businesses to realise their potential as the need for bandwidth grows.”

Colin Sempill, MD of SSE Enterprise Telecoms, added:

“Over the next few years UK businesses will demand better core network bandwidth, and our partnership with Sky directly addresses that need. For us it’s all about giving the wholesale market clarity of choice, where it can sometimes be confusing, and the quality is not always there. With this deal we’re providing one place for businesses to source a truly market-competitive price for high-capacity bandwidth services to support their growth needs.”

End.

    So does this mean that Sky residential consumers will become second rate customers when additional backhaul bandwidth is required for a non-contended SLA driven connections (the business clients)?

    Unlikely – residential bandwidth will probably be much greater than business, also residential traffic peaks in the late evening whereas business will generally have daytime use. A very effective sharing of resources.
