SSE Enterprise Telecoms‘ new network expansion program is set to bring 100Gbps and 10Gbps services to businesses across the nation. According to the announcement, SSE Enterprise Telecoms will nearly double its number of unbundled BT Exchanges in just over a year. The expansion program will allow the company’s customers to bring high capacity fiber services to 80% of UK business premises.
From 10Mbps to 100Gbps
The company announced that the new services will be available through SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ customer portal, LIVEQUOTE. The portal also allows users to quote, order, and compare prices with its own network and those of leading thirds parties, for business connectivity from 10Mbps to 100Gbps across the UK. SSE Enterprise Telecoms is also delivering connectivity to Three UK, with 198 exchanges already deployed, and another 259 which will be available soon, as a part of the accelerated expansion program.
When completed, the company will have a high-capacity fiber network spanning over 30,000 km. The company has maintained its delivery schedule throughout the COVID-19 lockdown. Colin Sempill, Chief Executive Officer, SSE Enterprise Telecoms said,
“Our business is continuing to deliver significant network expansion, bringing high-capacity connectivity to business premises across the UK, as well as helping to facilitate 5G rollouts and futureproof the UK’s digital ambitions. Complimenting this rapid growth is our LIVEQUOTE portal, which now provides businesses with instant visibility of access tail services from leading service providers, enabling them to purchase the optimal solutions for their business needs. Over the next couple of years our ambition is to provide high capacity services from at least 750 unbundled BT Exchanges, offering a plethora of cost-effective connectivity solutions nationally.”
