top 6 reasons to choose toob as your next and last broadband provider (part 1)

18th October 2021

Full-fibre is the next big thing in the world of UK broadband. With its dynamic download speeds and ultrafast upload speeds changing the way we use the internet, it’s not hard to see why. We want you to get the most from your connection, and benefit from full-fibre, so here are our top 6 reasons to get the ‘gold standard of broadband’ in your home today, starting with the top 3…

1. future-proofed

The only way to protect and achieve the UK Government’s digital ambitions, is to have FTTP (fibre-to-the-premises) for every home and business, instead of regular FTTC (fibre-to-the-cabinet). In our ever-increasing digital world, FTTC no longer cuts the mustard.

FTTC is struggling to keep up with the demand, with the surge of the internet of things (IOT). The IOT is becoming increasingly present in daily life where our lightbulbs, door bells, energy meters, appliances and more are connecting to the internet. The COVID-19 pandemic opened the UK’s eyes to the slow reality of FTTC, with everyone at home streaming, gaming, working from home, home schooling and checking out banana bread recipes. With toob’s full-fibre, everyone in the household can do more online with no changes to speed or reliability.

2. factually fast speeds

To put it simply, full-fibre is the fastest. Should you live in the South of England and are able to change your provider, our full-fibre broadband should be your first and only choice. Why?

According to a 2018 Survey, customers usually only receive around half the speeds for which they pay. Here at toob, the speed you pay for is the speed you get.

Compared to the rest of Europe, the UK’s average broadband speed is embarrassingly slow and has fallen behind the European average of 90 Mbps coming in at just 51 Mpbs**. At toob, we want to help change that.

We don’t sell the blisteringly fast broadband dream and then offer a grindingly slow nightmare. With upload and download speeds of 900 Mbps, we’re 17x faster* than the leading high street provider’s average speed.

3. reliable connection

Copper cabling has long been the backbone of the UK’s telecommunications infrastructure, but with some parts now over a century old, it has fast become unreliable and out of touch for modern living. Some broadband providers say they offer fibre broadband, however unless you’ve got full-fibre directly to your home, then your connection is actually a mix of fibre and copper wiring which dulls the connection down and can be shared with many other households.

We are one of the first ‘fibre to the premises’ (FTTP) networks in the South of England. We lay 100% fibre optic cable, end-to-end, directly to every premises through our own ducts, with no copper cabling. With our full-fibre broadband, the connection is yours and truly yours. That’s right, no more sharing a connection with the whole street. Time to put your feet up and finish that Netflix series you never seem to have time for.
