Celebrating our 15,000th connection going live

We look at 15 much-loved connections our customers can make using our ultrafast, full-fibre broadband
April 21, 2023

In 2014, our co-founders set out to transform the world of telecoms with a simple ambition in mind: to make sure that no community is left behind when it comes to connectivity.

Doing so hasn’t always been easy. After all, replacing slow and unreliable broadband in rural and semi-rural areas with our very own full-fibre network is no mean feat.

But, spurred on by glowing feedback from our growing number of customers and the hard work of our top-notch team of local talent, we’re excited to announce that we’ve now connected 15,000 properties to our ultrafast network.

Which means, as well as levelling up the digital capabilities of the South West for generations, we’ve also helped our customers get connected to the things they love most.

So to celebrate our 15,000th connection going live we look at 15 ways we help our customers get connected to what they love most…

1. Chatting with friends and family (or maybe even your dog…)

With our network, people in semi-rural, rural and ultra-rural communities can chat with friends, family, colleagues, or even beloved household pets (don’t pretend you haven’t done so…) from anywhere in the world.

2. Learning something new

Gone are the days when you had to buy bundles of workbooks to learn a new skill. Now, by hopping online, you can learn just about anything with the touch of a button.

3. Booking sun-soaked getaways

Grey skies getting you down? With just a few clicks, you can book yourself a sun-soaked getaway and be catching rays by the pool in no time.

4. Exploring new worlds

(Well, maybe not literally.) But when it comes to aiming for new high scores with your friends (or finding new ways to annoy them), gaming online has never been easier with our ultrafast, 24/7 connectivity.

5. Buying, selling, and everything in between

Whether you’re looking to bag yourself a bargain or run a business of your own, goods can be bought or sold with just a few taps using our full-fibre broadband.

6. Supporting your favourite charities

There’s no shortage of deserving causes in need of our support. And now, by hopping online, you can donate to your heart’s content and help make a meaningful difference to each and every one of them.

7. Staying up to date with all the latest news

From checking the afternoon sports scores to tracking events on the other side of the globe, our network’s always-on capabilities mean you can stay up to date with everything that’s going on – wherever you are.

8. Listening to your favourite tunes

Can’t find that much-loved LP you thought was tucked away in the loft? No worries. With online streaming, you can sit back, relax, and rediscover all your favourite tunes (and maybe with some new ones, too).

9. Working in a way that works for you

With our ultrafast network, you can work from the comfort of your very own home – or just about anywhere – and connect with colleagues from all over the world.

10. Bingeing box sets or your favourite films

Remember renting videos from a shop or receiving DVDs in the post? Nowadays, streaming means it’s never been easier to binge your favourite box set or enjoy a film with all the family.

11. Saving resources and collaborating with “the cloud”

Resources such as cloud-based connectivity mean you can now share and save countless resources quickly and easily, without the need to print off hard copies (or weigh down an email with lots of data-heavy attachments).

12. Staying safe with greater security

Whether you’re keeping a distant eye on unwanted visitors, watching what your pets get up to during the days or even looking to keep your data safe from prying eyes, enhanced connectivity means you can now use numerous tools to keep your home and tech safe and secure.

13. Simplifying weekly shops

Struggling to squeeze in time for your weekly food shop? No bother. Now, seamless connectivity allows you to order a weekly shop for the whole family with just a few clicks.

14. Connecting your home

More devices than ever can connect to ultrafast broadband just like ours. As a result, turning on lights, boiling the kettle, putting on a wash or even switching off the heating can all be done with just the sound of your voice.

15. Getting inspired

Sometimes inspiration can be hard to come by. But now, with 24/7 connectivity, hundreds of thousands of inspiring exhibitions, films, stories and more can be accessed anytime, anywhere.
