Internet, telephony and Wi-Fi Solutions for your care home.


Many care homes across the UK still do not have access to reliable internet or have very poor connections, especially across rural areas.

The pandemic forced care homes to go digital and this need has not decreased over the past few years.

With digital healthcare records, the increase in connected devices, video conferencing tools for both residents and staff members, and staff working remotely, having a strong and reliable internet essential.

Working with the care sector for over 25 years, we are confident that we can help you find the perfect connectivity solution to match your home’s needs.

What’s the difference between Fibre and Full Fibre?

You might have ‘Fibre’ in your care home, but is it Full Fibre? Lots of providers have historically referred to the most common internet service, Fibre to the Cabinet as ‘Fibre’.
This can be misleading, and confusing, as now we are referring to Full Fibre, we will break it down here. 

Fibre Broadband

Fibre to the Cabinet or FTTC or ‘Fibre’ is fibre optic from the telephone exchange to the nearest green cabinet on the roadside to your property. Then from the cabinet to your property they use copper telephone lines to delivery your internet. The problem here is, where Fibre maintains its speed over any distance, copper will slow down. That means the further away from the cabinet you are, the more difficulty you will face.

This service also has a speed cap, but the speeds vary, again, based on your distance from the cabinet, the further away you are the slower speed you will be able to access. 

Full Fibre Broadband

Now Full Fibre, this is fibre all the way from the telephone exchange, to a nearby distribution point, then its still fibre all the way into your property. No copper telephone lines, no speeds slowing down, no reaching max capacity for your area or experiencing those pesky peak time problems.

It is what it says on the tin, Full Fibre, all the way from the source to your business.

The ISDN and PSTN Switch off

In 2015 BT announced they will be switching off their ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) and PSTN (The Public Switched Telephone Network) services completely in 2025, which are essentially copper based lines which have become too costly to maintain. This will result in traditional landline connections ceasing and voice calls in the future needing to be made over IP.

While 2025 may seem a long way off, businesses won’t be able to operate any ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) or PSTN-based services shortly, and will need to find a new solution. The most popular alternative being telephone services delivered over the internet (VoIP), which can be extremely cost effective, with businesses making average yearly savings of £456.

We are offering FREE guidance and advice regarding the upcoming 2025 ISDN switch off. Contact us today to discuss how it may impact your home.
