CityFibre’s advanced network serves over 450 businesses in Peterborough with high-speed, reliable, full-fibre broadband. Is yours one of them?
The CityFibre network in Peterborough spans 293km across the city, connecting public sector sites from Peterborough Borough Council and private businesses to a system capable of virtually unlimited future speeds.
It’s these high speeds, coupled with the increased reliability that the network brings, that makes CityFibre an undeniably enticing prospect for any business in the area. Whether you need a dedicated line or you’re happy to share a connection for a more cost-effective service, we’ll help you find the right full-fibre broadband service.
Why is CityFibre superior?
While there are a number of services labelled as ‘fibre broadband’ in the UK, there’s a difference between most of them and the lightning-fast speeds you can get through a CityFibre connection.
Most fibre broadband services are FTTC (fibre to the cabinet), which means that fibre optics are used for the journey to your local cabinet. From there, your connection continues through a copper cable until it reaches your business.
The switch to copper cable can have a negative impact on bandwidth and the speed that you receive, which is why ‘full fibre’ connections are growing in popularity – especially for businesses.
Full-fibre broadband connections like CityFibre use fibre optic technology to bring you speeds of up to a Gigabit (1000 Mbps), on a line that isn’t slowed down by the use of copper cabling. This is great news for businesses that rely heavily on consistent, fast upload and download speeds.
How can CityFibre benefit your business in Peterborough?
Peterborough is considered as one of the UK’s top 10 Smart Cities and is a true Gigabit City, reflecting the area’s ambitions and interest in exploring how technology can shape the future in business.
There are many great reasons to invest in CityFibre broadband if your business is based in Peterborough. The faster speeds and reliable network means that you can run your operations with the confidence that your fibre broadband is not only supporting you but giving you a competitive advantage.
As a CityFibre user you’ll have access to a network that offers consistent, high performing fibre broadband to meet your voice, data and internet needs. Connections are available at a fixed cost, with speeds ranging from 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps.
Another benefit of signing up to the CityFibre network is that as your business grows and develops you’ll be able to make changes to your plan. The network is capable of virtually unlimited future speeds, so you’ll be in a good position to take advantage of future technology.
What is GPON CityFibre connectivity?
CityFibre GPON (Gigabyte Passive Optical Networks) is a cost-effective way to make use of full-fibre technology. We can offer two service speeds through this type of connection – 500 Mbps or 1 Gbps, so you can choose the most suitable option for your business.
GPON is delivered through what’s known as a contended line. This means your line is shared with other businesses. In this case, up to eight premises. Thanks to the high-speed connection from CityFibre you’re unlikely to notice that it isn’t a dedicated line though, plus capacity can easily be added to your line if necessary.
What is Ethernet CityFibre connectivity?
In contrast to GPON, an Ethernet CityFibre connection is a dedicated line that you lease from the provider. This means that you’re never sharing the line with any other business, so you can’t be impacted by any fluctuations in speed that arise from other users.
With an Ethernet connection, Amvia can offer you any speed you desire, starting at 100 Mbps. This flexibility is especially attractive if you need a more customised connection than the available GPON packages.
Choosing CityFibre Ethernet with Amvia
If you depend on a reliable connection to keep your business operating smoothly, an Ethernet leased line is an ideal choice.
Dedicated Ethernet lines are favoured by businesses that run critical applications, have distributed teams that rely on cloud-based software or require a steady connection for voice or video calls.
This type of connection is also useful for any business that wants to invest in efficiency and productivity. A fast, reliable CityFibre Ethernet connection with Amvia is a solid choice for future-thinking businesses.
Choosing CityFibre GPON with Amvia
For businesses that want a fast connection but want a more cost-effective option, CityFibre GPON with Amvia is an attractive choice.
As GPON is delivered over a shared line, you can benefit from an affordable yet superfast connection. With no more than eight premises per line, you can expect to see a consistently reliable service even when each connection is running at maximum capacity.
CityFibre GPON is a great option for businesses that require high speeds at a more affordable price point, or that don’t rely on heavy cloud-based infrastructure to run essential services.
