Connectivity is rapidly becoming the fourth utility alongside electricity, gas and water.

As the consumption of data explodes, connectivity needs to be a part of the PRS development strategy from day one.

Telcom works with property owners and professionals to install new connectivity infrastructure platforms. Installed as an original specification, and detachable from supplier ensuring landlords are not tied into one supplier forever as a part of the initial design.

Pure fibre, all the way from the exchange to your tenants.

Traditional way

Traditional ADSL

All xDSL Service Providers use the Openreach copper phone line and exchange infrastructure. This means little to no technical differentiation is possible. ISP product differentiation is done by price, traffic management, download limits, and customer service only.

Large majority of developments are not connected to cabinets and go straight to the exchange.

Average Speed: 8.1 Mbps

Traditional way

Traditional FTTC

(Fibre To The Cabinet)

FTTC brings Fibre between the Exchange and Street Cabinet, only where this connection already exists. Core network and last mile network (beyond the cabinet) remain as is.

Service is still distance dependent due to the last mile and there is still minimum ISP product differentiation possible.

FTTC services use existing ISP backhaul network and any limitations therein.

Average Speed: 44.6 Mbps

Our way

Telcom Fibre Network
