Gigabit Fibre transforms Eltofts
A number of small businesses and farms based in Eltofts – a rural area of North Leeds – had been battling with staggeringly slow internet connectivity for years – that is, until they heard that Leeds was to become a Gigabit City.
Change had finally arrived.
As a community, they decided to work together to connect to this new future-proof Gigabit Fibre network and as a result, never looked back.
This is their story…
Overcoming stumbling blocks
“For years Eltofts has suffered from slow internet speeds and sub-par services, in some cases spending over £80 per household for dual lines to achieve a mere 6Mbps download speed” Andy Wright, Eltofts technical manager of the project
The problem was that many solutions from leading service providers involved delivering the connection over old copper lines, however this had caused years of problems for the professionals in the area – engineers were even visiting as often as once a fortnight to repair faults.
“We’ve experienced incomprehensible improvement and it has made a huge impact on all our lives. A fast and reliable connection is now a necessity for businesses and like many rural communities, we were being left in the dark ages.”
Victory for Eltofts
Eltofts approached their local B2B telecoms provider – Diva Telecom – to enquire about securing their own Gigabit City Leeds connection. After a consultation, we were able to provide ultrafast gigabit speeds over a 24km length of fibre (100% pure) to Wetherby Road in Eltofts and from there residents dug trenches so that the fibre could be laid directly to their home offices.
After only four months, their high speed Gigabit Fibre connection went live and in October 2016 twelve Eltofts premises were connected to the Gigabit City Leeds network. As a result they now have one of the fastest rural business broadband connections in the world, benefiting from upload and download speeds of up to 1 Gigabit per second.
“Diva Telecom provided us with the ability to take control of our own connection and install a network at much lower cost that provides an upload speed up to 3,000 times faster than our previous connections.”
