Glide Group is upgrading its fibre infrastructure in Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham and Birmingham and introducing its new range of Glide Gigabit full-fibre broadband services to offer symmetric 10 Gbit/s speeds with low latency.
Glide has brought full-fibre broadband directly to business parks underserved by larger ISPs. Every metre of fibre that Glide lays is gigabit-capable. Entry-level services are FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) broadband with the latest generation WiFi6 routers.
Glide is physically laying fibre end-to-end all the way from its own local infrastructure and roadside green cabinets, across its own national core network to the Internet. As a result of its acquisition of Concept Solutions People in May, Glide has been able to accelerate its fibre build in strategic locations.
Tim Pilcher, CEO of Glide Group said: “Glide’s business started out in Coventry and our rollout of 10 Gbit/s capable infrastructure will provide local businesses with fibre that offers fast and reliable connectivity. SME businesses took a hit from the pandemic and with the growing need for robust cloud-based business applications, it is our priority to equip the Midland’s business community with the best fibre connectivity possible.”
