H2O Pitches Dark Fiber
NEWTON-LE-WILLOWS, U.K. -- The ever increasing popularity of social networking websites and services such as TV and video over the web is contributing heavily to the UK’s bandwidth problems. A North West-based company, H2O Networks is hailing dark fibre as the solution. Dark fibre offers unlimited bandwidth connectivity yet surprisingly no carriers are willing to sell it.
H2O Networks is keen to encourage the take up of dark fibre and is offering a unique local fibre service for £699 per month with no connection fee, offering virtual ownership of the fibre and a future-proofed network for at least the next ten years. And, regardless of your bandwidth requirements 100mps, 200mps or Gigabit, the price remains the same. Additional fibres will be charged at an incredible price of 0.25p.
“Dark fibre is a much overlooked, but totally viable solution to solve the UK’s bandwidth needs,” said Elfed Thomas, managing director, H2O Networks. He continued: “BT set the bandwidth tariff about 30 years ago and not only is it hugely expensive, it is also extremely restrictive. No-one could have predicted the current levels of demand for bandwidth, so the future lies with dark fibre.”
