First Customer connected to Connexin’s Ultrafast broadband network in South Cave using pioneering Siklu Terragraph technology

Connexin are delighted to announce the successful connection of their first customer to its ultrafast network in South Cave, a ground-breaking step in Connexin’s mission to provide ultra-fast gigabit broadband speeds to those in rural areas.

Dan, from South Cave has become the first customer in the area connected to the new 1000 Mbps capable network, speeds which have previously been unachievable in the area.

Dan Said “Joshua and the team have been fantastic from start to finish. They came and installed, they were very professional and polite did a great job of the installation. The broadband itself seems great so far and has not slowed down while the kids have been playing their games either”.

The Challenges

A fast, reliable broadband connection has become a vital part of our lives, whether that be to stream your favourite TV show, work from home, increase your property value or to stay connected with loved ones, everyone wants and needs to be connected!

Rural connectivity comes with many challenges and there is a lot to consider when building high speed broadband networks in hard-to-reach areas. Many larger broadband providers have avoided investing in and expanding into rural areas as a result. However, that’s were Connexin are different, we care about our surrounding community and have developed a new innovative approach that uses both Fibre and Wireless technologies to solve the rural broadband challenge.  Our approach is designed to be environmentally friendly and cause less disruption by minimising excavation.

The Solution

Connexin’s Fixed Wireless Networks utilise Siklu’s latest Facebook certified Terragraph solution. This enables Connexin to meet the growing demand for reliable, high-speed internet access in urban, suburban and rural environments.

Connexin have used the Siklu Smarthaul Wireless Network Design Engine (WiNDE) to plan and design a complete millimetre wave wireless network, allowing them to pinpoint poles and measure the radius of coverage ensuring the best possible results for connectivity and speeds throughout the village.

Connexin and Siklu have a long and successful partnership which has proven to Connexin that Siklu are a key technology partner for building intelligent ultra-fast networks

The Result

With the network in South Cave now live each resident can expect speeds of up to 1000 Mbps, with unlimited download allowances.

Due to the success of the launch in South Cave, Connexin will be rolling out its new technology to connect neighbouring Villages shortly.
