Why should you upgrade?

There are many reasons as to why people may want to upgrade and access Superfast speeds for both their business or at home.

Here are some benefits of upgrading your broadband package


Home and lifestyle

For instance, a more harmonious and happy household that will enable simultaneous multiple use for games consoles, shopping via IPads and reading the latest novel on a Kindle device. No more arguing over who gets to do what and when!

If that’s not enough, you will also be able to stream faster enabling you to enjoy that film or binge watch that box set. Lovely.

You could also make use of the Cloud to store photos, documents, music and films etc.

Or, you could get through you list of things to do quicker via faster more immersive web browsing enabling you to shop quicker, pay your council tax, take advantage of price comparison sites for car or home insurance, to research and book that weekend away or holiday, get those concert tickets etc.

It could also be a great way to keep in touch with family and friends or perhaps a way to access a support network to maintain independence for those amongst us with disabilities or perhaps getting older.

You may decide to access learning or development opportunities to get that new job or secure a career change – better speeds make this an improved experience.

Business and work

A superfast connection may enable you to improve your work/life balance by being able to work from home; be more productive and reduce that commute time!

It could be the catalyst to set-up and develop a business. You can easily test and trial an idea, incrementally develop it and reduce the risks by removing the “leap of faith” if walking away from employment.

For businesses, there are many benefits to faster speeds. These include:

  • an easier way to researching new markets or to undertake competitor analysis
  • a faster way to analyse, model or present data to inform key decisions
  • to buy and sell more effectively
  • support marketing activity i.e. target advertising, use analytics or utilise social media to engage with both existing and potential customers
  • to achieve greater efficiencies in terms of reducing time or costs and by adopting new processes or systems that improve working practices.
