Not all SDSL UK providers are equal
Businesses all over the world rely on SDSL – UK companies are no exception.
It is an open secret that some parts of the country are much better served than others, although Managed Comms is at the forefront of bringing high-speed broadband to companies wherever they are based.
Take west Lancashire, for example, which has just been identified as an area that would benefit from superior SDSL UK coverage, according to local newspaper the Ormskirk Advertiser.
A new West Lancashire borough council report noted that nine telephone exchanges in the area are not SDSL-enabled, potentially meaning many local businesses are missing out on next-generation broadband speeds.
It’s worth pointing out, however, that many UK companies needlessly miss out on high-speed broadband because they have been given incomplete information.
These businesses are commonly told that they cannot get the service because BT does not operate an SDSL-enabled exchange in their area.
But thanks to Managed Comms’ ability to access more exchanges than BT, we can actually offer far superior SDSL UK coverage.
And perhaps unsurprisingly, the council study concludes that boosting uptake will facilitate economic growth and development throughout west Lancashire.
That may be because an SDSL UK connection offers much faster internet speeds than conventional broadband.
Following publication of the findings, councillor Adrian Owens, portfolio holder for regeneration at West Lancashire borough council, revealed that a Skelmersdale company relocated to the Isle of Man recently citing slow internet speeds.
He said: “It’s not a problem unique to west Lancashire – it’s true over most of Lancashire – but we’ve been aware of the problem for some time. Reliable high-speed broadband is key.”
Meanwhile, a Lancashire county council spokesman said that it was investigating the lack of SDSL UK coverage in the region.
He explained: “We are looking at provision to see what’s there at the moment and to find out what it’s possible to do to improve broadband provision.”
