The UK's first 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) network has been launched in Swindon, Southwark and Reading.
Now Broadband, a service offered by wireless provider UK Broadband, has announced that its 4G wireless broadband is now available to residents and businesses in these areas. The fixed wireless 4G LTE broadband service offers superfast broadband via a home router, an alternative to a fixed broadband connection.
“We are really excited to offer residents and businesses in these areas a unique opportunity to enjoy 4G speeds using our wireless networks,” said Nicholas James CEO at Now Broadband. “Our services offer a truly flexible, hassle-free alternative to fixed-line broadband services – whether it’s at home, work or a customer Wi-Fi solution.
“In terms of business benefits, this service can be either the primary superfast Internet connection or provide the secondary or resilient connection to ensure that local businesses and organisations are connected at all times. Being always connected is now an essential requirement in today’s business and increasingly cloud based world. It can be extremely damaging if a business loses its Internet connection.
“Wireless broadband provides a low-cost, reliable second connection as well as providing significant additional Internet capacity to the business.”
