HotHouse, the specialist developers, manufacturers and distributors of quality personal care products and renowned beauty brands, required a data and phone set-up for their new Sheffield warehouse and Brighouse HQ comprising 50,000 sq ft of combined space.

What’s the best type of news you can get? The news of an unexpected windfall, of course. Especially when it comes from a business behemoth like Openreach. You see headline figures in the millions and try and guess how much might be hitting your pockets.
ADSL is still used by many businesses across the UK, but are the days numbered for this style of connectivity? With newer, faster, more reliable services being rolled out throughout the country, what does the future hold for ADSL?
ADSL is an asymmetric digital subscriber line. Basically, it transfers data through the use of copper cables and delivers an asymmetric service; upload speeds that are typically not quite as fast as the download speeds received.
ADSL has been used consistently in the UK since the introduction of the technology in 1998 and is currently widely considered to be the standard ‘go to’ connection for UK businesses. So why are some experts beginning to claim that ADSL is doomed?
“ADSL’s qualities don’t always meet the needs of modern web users.”
Once upon a time, asymmetric lines were the ideal; when the internet was primarily used to discover new information. It made perfect sense to prioritise download speeds as the average user would have little need — if any — to upload data.
