Benefits of Fibre
Benefits of fibre
The big difference is a full, future-proof, fibre optic network of 500Mb-2Gb speeds connecting homes, hospitals, schools, businesses and communities.
Making the most of your connection
While the fibre connection and WiFi supplied to you by your provider will be more than capable of delivering speeds of at least 500Mbps, there can be many reasons why your broadband is not achieving full speed over WiFi.
What’s involved in the network build?
Physical surveys are required to examine the existing pole and duct network for inclusion in the design.
NBI’s detailed design process covers infrastructure, power and footprint required, drawings, openeir works, Local Authority requirements and revised cost analysis.
After the designs have been approved, work can start on the ground. This includes everything from readying existing infrastructure to laying fibre.
Once the build is complete, an order can be placed with a broadband service provider who is registered to sell on the NBI™ network.
NBI will connect your premises on behalf of your preferred broadband service provider. Once connected to the NBI network, you will have guaranteed access to minimum speeds of 500Mb.
