Our Fibre to the Mast (FTTM) Technology
We call the main technology powering Wessex Internet Fibre to the Mast (FTTM). This technology allows us to deliver lightning-fast wireless Internet with a high capacity gigabit fibre core to drive massive data throughput to our customers.
BT Retail's latest 'fibre' broadband service is being branded Infinity. BT's services use Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) technology. This is where fibre is routed to a green cabinet, and your copper telephone line connects to this. In this respect, we're different because we use wireless technology for the final mile compared to copper.
Wessex Internet's service has as much fibre as BT's "Fibre broadband" but we're choosing not to mislead our customers by calling it fibre broadband.
- Our services go further and faster.
- Our services are being deployed in rural very low populated areas.
- Our services are installed and supported by locals, for locals.
- Our services aren't restricted by Exchange-only lines.
- Our customer support is based in the UK.
Where we expand into regions further afield, we use MTTM, or Microwave to the Mast technology.
We still offer the same high speeds and low latency connections as with our FTTM technology, and all MTTM back hauls support end user connections of at least 30 Mb/s down and 10 Mb/s up, and most support up to 50 Mb/s.
"We joined Wessex Internet in March this year, and have found the service excellent. The speed is as promised, allowing us now to access films/iplayer for the first time. "
"We are very pleased with Superfast Internet, as we can now use BBC Radio and TV iPlayer without suffering from constant breaks in streaming while living in the depths of the countryside."
"It used to take up to 2 days to download a film, now I can watch it straight away."
"The installation was within a few days of my order and by first class personnel who took great care."
"Wessex Internet were very responsive, detailed and we no longer have any concerns about the integrity of our internet connection."
