Business Broadband

Our Broadband network is a private service designed to meet the data requirements of those that utilise SIP and VoIP.

While our Broadband network interconnects with Tier 1 National Networks for the greatest possible availability to our customers, we automatically optimise all of our circuits to prioritise VoIP traffic, maximising call quality and reliability.

All of our Broadband circuits have the same, if not better, speeds and reliability of service as those directly from the Tier 1 networks we interconnect with as we operate a low contention rate.

Here are just some of the benefits of using our Broadband:

  • IP-Phones registered on our platform send their data directly to our Voice Network when using one of our Broadband circuits. This means a shorter distance (fewer hops) for the data to travel, which ultimately results in a greater quality of service for our customers.
  • We provide a variety of QoS levels (1,2, and 4) that you can choose from. Each of these QoS levels will automatically allocate a fixed portion of available bandwidth to VoIP traffic. This means that regardless of any other processes running over the data connection, your Call quality will never suffer.
  • We provide a fixed IP Address with every Broadband circuit, at no additional cost.
  • We can provide a preconfigured, SIP-Optimised Router to arrive 24 hours before your new circuit goes live, eliminating downtime and saving you hassle.

What do I need?

Blucom is able to supply every part of a new Broadband Connection. Generally, this consists of the following:

  • Analogue Line
  • Broadband Circuit
  • SIP-Optimised Router

If you already have an existing Analogue Line, we can provision our Broadband circuit over the line, and if you already have an existing Broadband Circuit running on an analogue line, we’re able to migrate the circuit over to our network.

How does it work?

We will need to check products are available at your location. Please note, in order to check for FTTC availability, we will need the telephone number of an analogue line at site.

Once your analogue line has been installed by a BT Engineer, we’re able to provision a new broadband circuit on it. ADSL and ADSL2+ circuits are generally activated within 5 working days, and new FTTC connections can generally be installed within 10 working days, due to the need for an engineer to visit the customer site.

What speeds should I expect?

We get asked how does the length of my telephone line (copper only) affect my speed?

The answer to this is that the loop length of a copper telephone line has a direct impact on throughput capacity. Simply put, the longer the line, the slower the service.
