Poole-based UK ISP Juice Broadband, which offers a mix of “full fibre” (FTTP) and wireless network solutions to homes and businesses along Dorset’s south coast, has extended their ultrafast fixed wireless broadband service to cover Bournemouth’s Lansdowne and Town Centre areas.
The operator previously only had “superfast” (24Mbps+) capable wireless coverage in the area, while the new fibre optic fed Mimosa Microwave radio dish should enable them to deliver “ultrafast” (100Mbps+) speeds. The network tends to use a mix of 5GHz and 24GHz links for this service.
The development follows on from their recent upgrades around Poole Business Park.
Claire Simpson, Juice’s Operations Director, said:
“What makes this type of fixed wireless broadband unique is that rather than using satellites, bouncing signals over 20,000 miles into space and back, our network is devised of a series of radio towers that host transmission equipment, which are typically located within a 5 mile radius of the customer’s business.
These towers are fed by physical fibre connection, which connects back to our data centers situated on the South Coast. When a customer places an order we can usually connect them very quickly, as we have no roads to dig up, or fibre to pull through. We also can provide connections that are diverse from BT or other local providers meaning true diversity not only from the ground but also other providers.”
