The internet and its endless possibilities – shopping, streaming social media, homeworking and Zooming – we’re relying on it more than ever and often trying to do everything at the same time, battling for precious bandwidth.
Cue the buffering, then the bickering and if it grinds to a halt if can feel like the end of the world. It’s time for a broadband connection that just works – all the time. No matter how many people are online and no matter what they are doing.
The good news is we’re here to bring the residents and local businesses in Sleaford just that; a future-proofed, full fibre broadband connection that just works and without the hefty price tag. It’s what the bigger towns and cities are already getting, but the big broadband providers are just not delivering to smaller communities crying out for decent internet.
Here at LightSpeed, we believe Sleaford shouldn’t get left behind so we’re building our new state-of-the-art network to take you from bog-standard buffering broadband to full fibre gigabit broadband – purpose-built for the online lives we all live today, and with the capacity and reliability that any home or small business may need well into the future. It’s the only broadband you’ll ever need.
So what is full fibre gigabit broadband?
It means the connection to the internet uses fibre optic for the whole of the route into our homes, all the way from the exchange. It’s a seamless, future-proofed connection capable of ultrafast speeds of 1 Gigabit per second (or 1000 Mbps). That’s 23x faster than the part fibre services – which use copper for the last part of the connection – available in the East of England.
It's not just about speed. Most of us don’t know what speed we get or what we need, it’s reliability that counts and full fibre is 5x more reliable than part fibre broadband. It’s smooth and stable so all the important things you do online become a breeze, from homeworking and gaming to running your business or facetiming family. You can do what you want online, when you want, with as many people as you want. No drama. No bickering. No buffering. Plus full fibre is not affected by the weather and it’s kinder to the environment, too.
We’re building our network as quickly and environmentally kindly as we can
You may have seen our teams in Sleaford who are busy building the network. Wherever possible we’re re-using existing underground infrastructure and telegraph poles; and by using the latest digital tools to plan our network we minimise disruption and increase our speed of deployment.
We’re committed to supporting local communities and to our environment so at every opportunity we’re investing in greener, cleaner ways and asking our partners to meet our same high standards.
