Is weak Digital Infrastructure damaging business growth?

18th February 2019

  Across the UK, thousands of businesses are ready to unlock their potential.

We sit on the brink of a digital revolution, but outdated infrastructure is holding us back more than many businesses realise. Companies the length and breadth of the UK, in every sector, are in urgent need of digital connectivity that is truly fit for purpose. We've all felt that familiar frustration when the download estimate for a large file is minutes even hours instead of seconds. Many have felt the irritation when skype cuts out during a call or when you must save files/presentations to a USB stick because the internet connection cannot be trusted. You might think that these frustrations are simply part and parcel of modern business and that, although your current broadband connection is far from perfect, there isn't anything better available. You may also think you already have -fibre and reluctantly, you've accepted that even though it isn't great, it's the best you're going to get. In truth, there is a better alternative available now, that alternative is full fibre! Digital Exchange have partnered with City Fibre, the builder of Gigabit Cities and the UK's largest alternative full fibre network provider in the UK, to provide full fibre connections to organisations across the Sheffield region. Speeds start at a minimum guaranteed speed of 500Mbps and are completely scalable. 'Fibre' & 'full fibre' are very different, when some of the biggest network providers in the UK talk about fibre, what you are settling for, is fibre cables used for only part of the journey, to carry data to your local cabinet. From there, old fashioned copper wire which is notoriously slow and unreliable carries the data to and from your premises. Full fibre on the other hand uses a fibre connection the entire length of the journey. That means no copper wires and virtually no slowdown in speeds or drops in quality. Digital Exchange want to help businesses access the best possible services, which is why we offer gigabit speed connections over City Fibre's independent network. This is a true digital holy grail superior, high capacity, full fibre infrastructure with speeds a magnitude above anything else available on the market place today. Full fibre has an immediate impact on a business's productivity, efficiency and bottom line, while unlocking new opportunities and future proofing businesses for tomorrow. If you rely on an internet connection which is barely fast or resilient enough to 'get by', then your business is going to struggle to keep up with competitors and be endlessly constrained by the burdens of sluggish connectivity. Get in touch today and let Digital Exchange bring your business into the digital era.
