WHAT IS SOGEA BROADBAND? …

Until recently broadband has required the use of a separate telephone line, meaning two products and two rental charges each month. With business telephone lines due to be phased out completely by the end of 2025, we now provide SOGEA Fibre Broadband which is an all-in-one internet connection without the need for a separate telephone line.  Just one product to provide and support with a single monthly rental.  Easy.
If you have a requirement for a telephone service, then we can provide our award winning Hosted PBX, which can be used with SOGEA Fibre Broadband.  By adding Voice Assist, Voice over IP call quality can also be drastically improved.

WHO WOULD USE IT AND WHY?...

Fibre broadband provides fast internet access at a sensible monthly price and is ideally suited to small business, branch locations or home offices.  Where Full Fibre FTTP isn’t yet available at your location and a Dedicated Fibre Ethernet circuit is above budget then SOGEA Fibre Broadband is the perfect choice. With downstream speeds of up to 330Mbps SOGEA Fibre Broadband is a great solution for businesses running bandwidth-hungry or multiple applications.

Fibre Broadband is also an ideal facilitator when moving services to the cloud as these hosted services become much easier to access with the enhanced speeds provided.

Finally if you are after a fast and reliable connection for your home office then SOGEA Fibre Broadband is the ideal choice.  Don’t let your data connection hold you back!

WHAT IS PREMIUM BROADBAND? …

Fibre Broadband is generally provided as Standard or Premium.  The main difference between the two versions relate to the data throughput target.

During busy times a Premium broadband circuit will experience priority data weighting, meaning that the traffic will be transmitted across the network first, before data from a Standard broadband circuit.

Generally this means a consistently higher throughput speed on Premium circuits when compared to Standard versions.

The downstream throughput can be up to 50% higher on Premium circuits during peak network busy periods.

All of the broadband circuits that we provide now have Premium data weighting included at no additional charge.

WHAT IS VOICE ASSIST? …

Broadband circuits were designed to provide fast and affordable internet access.  However by this very design a Voice over IP call can sometimes struggle as it competes with other data types across the network.

VoIP calls require minimal delay across a network otherwise poor quality can be introduced, which manifests itself as echoes, drop outs and a stuttered conversation.

There is an answer though when using fibre broadband and we call this Voice Assist.  With Voice Assist we help the voice data packets along their network journey so that they receive absolute priority at every stage.  This starts when the data leaves the local network and we configure the router to identify voice traffic and then send it first.  We then add something called Real Time Quality of Service (RTQoS) to the broadband network, so that the voice traffic continues to be flagged and treated with priority, minimising delays and in turn improving voice quality with CLEAR calls.

If you are planning on using your fibre broadband circuit with VoIP then Voice Assist is a low cost add-on from just £3 per month.

How SOGEA FTTC Broadband works

The Big Switch Off

The 5th September 2023 has been announced as the national ‘stop sell’ date – the point at which Openreach will no longer provide new or modify existing analogue and ISDN lines or allow transfers of existing services between service providers.

The switch off project completes at the end of 2025 and from this date it’s all-IP or nothing.
