Faster broadband being rolled out across Ipswich

Posted 11 Dec 2020

Have you been caught up in an endless stream of roadworks across Ipswich lately? If so, you’ll be interested to know that gigabit-capable full fibre infrastructure is being rolled out across the town. This means that we will benefit from much faster internet speeds once the rollout is complete and services are activated. 

The benefits of full fibre infrastructure in Ipswich

In our view, this is a really exciting development for the town.

A full fibre network could be a huge economic boost to the region as faster, more reliable internet speeds can help to generate innovation and connectivity. A key part of this is the growing affordability for business start-ups, who will have access to enhanced connectivity and efficiency.

2020 has seen a forced digital revolution in the number of businesses working from home. The coronavirus pandemic has transformed the ways that many businesses work, and it is believed that almost three-quarters of firms intend to continue working from home (source: IoD). This means that having a reliable and stable broadband infrastructure will be key to the UK’s economic recovery – especially in smaller towns and rural areas where they are less likely to have access to a reliable fixed or mobile connection.

Our service manager Jamie Pope says:

“The immediate switch to remote working could have been chaotic but luckily broadband providers were able to cope well with the surge in demand earlier this year. We’ve continued to provide excellent IT support to all of our clients working from home, and it’s been rare that any individuals have had technical issues as a result of their personal broadband connections.”

“However, it is hugely exciting that Ipswich will benefit from this investment. Research has shown that broadband coverage across the UK can fluctuate, with rural areas often at a disadvantage. This national investment is extremely positive and means that as a town, we can start to see a big increase in local innovation and digital projects.”
