Why is commercial connectivity such a challenge?

Gaining a new connection in central London requires the installation of a dedicated lease line for each tenant. This is a time consuming process, often taking as long as eight weeks. Installation also requires a wayleave agreement with the building owner, a legal agreement which can also be expensive and time-consuming. 

What other commercial property connectivity options are there? 

Businesses who want to gain connectivity quickly with less hassle and upfront cost have two options. One is the serviced office option - which often proves to be highly expensive over a longer period. The second option is to install a wireless microwave internet connection.

This second option doesn’t require a way leave agreement, just permission from the landlord. To install a wireless microwave connection, we simply need access to the roof once given permission. We then instal satellite equipment which sends the connection straight to the commercial property.  

This technology means we can often offer connectivity to commercial property tenants within days, rather than weeks.


What are the other advantages of a wireless microwave connection?

Improvements to the technology means that microwave connectivity is now as fast and reliable as a traditional fibre line. And because it doesn’t rely on underground cables, there’s no risk of disruption during the frequent roadworks in the capital.
