Orbital Net to Provide 13,000 Holiday Homes with Broadband

Canterbury-based UK ISP Orbital Net (Vfast) has today signed a new multi-million pound deal with Park Holidays UK, which will see 13,000 holiday homes across Britain being provided with access to a new “high-speed broadband” connection.

The proposed technology solution looks to be the same one as they use on their Vfast brand, which will represent a mix of ultrafast “fibre optic cabling directly to the holiday homes” (FTTP), and some fast WiMax based wireless broadband. The solution deployed will vary between different parks and homes, while some 60GHz wireless kit is also being used to provide full gig capabilities where the fibre is not yet at a section of the park.

We should point out that the wireless network is also fed from Orbital’s own fibre infrastructure, which is currently said to be based inside Openreach’s telephone exchanges and regional data centres.

Orbital’s Darren Brown said:

“Nobody wants to put up with slow broadband on holiday, but many British parks are based in areas where people struggle with slow download speeds.

In this day and age, holiday makers require superfast broadband wherever they are.

The traditional approach of transmitting WiFi across the park is rarely successful as holiday homes are often well insulated and resist the penetration of the signals.

But by connecting each unit to fibre broadband, guests can stream Netflix movies or FaceTime their friends without the irritation of constant buffering.”

The whole project is due for completion in early 2021 sometime.

NOTE: Orbital currently employs 50 staff and their FTTP solution can deliver top download speeds of 330Mbps.

    All sounds very nice but depends on the price to the end user for short durations. We were on some sites last year and the price per hour was eye watering for limited amounts of data at next to usless speeds. When we complained they said it was nothing to do with the site as it was all through a 3rd party provider ring this number. They just play on the fact there is no 3/4G in the area.
