Wildcard FibreConnect

We have been told Openreach is bringing fibre broadband to the area years ago, but we haven't heard or seen anything since. Here at Wildcard this is something that we hear regularly from our customers and partners. Often areas like this are held in the ether of Openreach's roll-out with very little in the way of simple answers of when businesses and home owners can access high-speed, reliable fibre broadband. FibreConnect is Wildcard's solution that provides fibre broadband to areas with a dedicated and transparent roll-out strategy.

The service offers speeds of upto 100Mbps download in FTTC (Fibre To The Cabinet) areas and 200Mbps download in FTTP (Fibre To The Premise) areas. The technology used is based on what is best for the location ensuring the service is affordable and provides great performance to the end-user.

Wildcard FTTC FibreConnect cabinet installation at Orion Business Park
 Orion Business Park located in North Shields recently had Wildcard's first FTTC cabinet installed giving over 50 businesses access to high-speed, affordable broadband. Installation costs for customers are kept low by using existing BT phone lines to connect to the cabinet. Even with the FibreConnect service using the line, customers can continue to use their telephone services as before.

 Next Wildcard is planning a FTTC roll-out to parts of North Tyne Industrial Estate aimed completion is before the end of 2017. Similar to the installation at Orion Business Park access to customers will be provided through BT phone lines avoiding any hard to swallow installation fees.
