Wireless ISP Juice Broadband Extends to Central Bournemouth

Thursday, Mar 7th, 2019 (3:17 pm) - Score 1,386

Poole-based UK ISP Juice Broadband, which offers a mix of “full fibre” (FTTP) and wireless network solutions to homes and businesses along Dorset’s south coast, has extended their ultrafast fixed wireless broadband service to cover Bournemouth’s Lansdowne and Town Centre areas.

The operator previously only had “superfast” (24Mbps+) capable wireless coverage in the area, while the new fibre optic fed Mimosa Microwave radio dish should enable them to deliver “ultrafast” (100Mbps+) speeds. The network tends to use a mix of 5GHz and 24GHz links for this service.

The development follows on from their recent upgrades around Poole Business Park.

Claire Simpson, Juice’s Operations Director, said:

“What makes this type of fixed wireless broadband unique is that rather than using satellites, bouncing signals over 20,000 miles into space and back, our network is devised of a series of radio towers that host transmission equipment, which are typically located within a 5 mile radius of the customer’s business.

These towers are fed by physical fibre connection, which connects back to our data centers situated on the South Coast. When a customer places an order we can usually connect them very quickly, as we have no roads to dig up, or fibre to pull through. We also can provide connections that are diverse from BT or other local providers meaning true diversity not only from the ground but also other providers.”

End.

    All good but with Bournemouth Council actively supporting a 5G test bed (OS trial) and Vodafone announcing Bournemouth as one of the early 5G roll-outs this year, their capped packages will be under significant competition very soon if not already from 4G.

      Let’s not forget a lot of 4G subscriptions are capped, not to mention a well higher contention ratio. The majority of Fixed Wireless Access solutions provide unlimited bandwidth and lower contention ratios, a long with flexible solutions such as site-to-site connections and VLAN, this gives FWA great potential in the market.

      I think 4G/5G will always be my solution for redundancy and temporary connections such as mobile offices etc.
      Another difference between the two is 4G/5G has nationwide coverage (when rolled out) and FWA has roughly less than 5 miles

      I hope you’re not critizing the Juice 😉

    Last time I check. It’s only around 400km to the satellites orbiting Earth. Rather than 20,000 miles….!!

    True fibre appears to be business only, in other words, nothing new that can’t be provided by BT or Virgin in Bournemouth and Poole.
