CityFibre, the UK’s largest independent full fibre platform, is supporting
wholesale partners and their business customers as they return to their
offices and/or adopt new hybrid working practices, by making its
popular Ethernet Flex solution even more flexible with a new six-month promotion.
The upcoming return to the office and an increase in the adoption of hybrid working practices has left many businesses uncertain of their immediate bandwidth requirements as they reassess the rapidly evolving needs of their staff and organisation. Whilst that makes this the perfect time to evaluate their current connectivity needs, committing to new long-term connectivity contracts can potentially be daunting due to the current economic climate and ongoing pandemic uncertainty.
That’s why CityFibre have launched a new six-month promotion, providing even more flexibility across its Ethernet Flex solution.
CityFibre, the UK’s third national digital infrastructure platform, is offering its wholesale partners greater scope to support their business customers during COVID by launching an enhanced October promotion.
a positive response to a recent promotion to defer its installation fee
on a 12-month contract to the last month of the term, CityFibre has now
taken this offer a step further with its enhanced promotion, which
reduces the monthly price on the 12 month contract to the same rate as
on a 36 month term.
Where the customer agrees to extend the
contract for a further 24 months, CityFibre will also waive the install
fee completely, so the monthly rental payment simply continues.
Entanet is offering resellers the chance to utilise maximum bandwidth on ultra-fast 100/100Mbps Ethernet connectivity for just £175* until the end of September – a lower price than others charge for 10Mbps/100Mbps services.
Entanet is making highly-profitable, entry-level full fibre connectivity an even more exciting proposition by offering all new CityFibre 100Mbps connections ordered with a 100Mbps bearer* for just £175 per month.
The new promotion means channel partners can access 100Mbps/100Mbps Ethernet services for a lower price than most 10Mbps/100Mbps services from other carriers. The discount is made available to resellers, allowing them to pass on additional benefits to their customers or incorporate the service as part of an overall value proposition. There is no limit to the number of services each partner can purchase.
Entanet has launched a new service to revolutionise the channel’s full fibre gigabit-capable Ethernet proposition to businesses – available for just £199* per month until 30 September
Entanet, a CityFibre company and leading wholesale provider of full fibre connectivity, is enabling the channel to serve business customers with low cost full fibre Ethernet that meets their need for exceptionally fast connectivity, while accommodating occasional need for more bandwidth at no extra cost.
The wholesaler has launched Ethernet Flex 1Gbps across the UK on its CityFibre full fibre infrastructure. With a guaranteed rate of 200Mbps both up and down and the provision to burst up to 1Gbps, it serves businesses’ need for a consistently reliable and fast connection for day-to-day operations but critically the ability to complete bandwidth-intensive tasks without incurring additional charges or having to pre-arrange more bandwidth availability.
There is little doubt that the growth and prosperity of small and medium-sized businesses in the UK has been stifled for some time by slow and unreliable connectivity.
Our economy is increasingly being driven by digital innovation, yet many SMEs see Ethernet and other business boosting full fibre solutions as too costly an option to consider.
The national picture painted by Ofcom also makes stark reading – its latest figures highlight that only 6% of the country can currently access full fibre technology, meaning these solutions are often seen by SMEs as beyond their reach too!
On 11th and 12th September Channel Live will be held at the NEC, Birmingham and Entanet will be exhibiting there on stand 458. It’s an exciting place to be if you have an important message for the channel, and a great place to go if you’re seriously looking to grow a profitable connectivity reseller business. Following the success of last year’s first ever Channel Live, we’re expecting this year’s to be even better. Product launches and demos, an informative seminar programme and a chance to speak to all of the key channel players – what a great environment!
Our big push
We believe the intensifying message around the absolute need for full fibre connectivity for the success of the UK’s digital economy (and indeed its survival) is a critical one to emphasise to visitors at Channel Live. We’re bringing the full fibre opportunity to the channel and we’re in a unique position to do so. As a part of CityFibre, we’re building the UK’s alternative wholesale network, using our own full fibre infrastructure to bring Gigabit connectivity to 5 million premises by 2025.
Emma is our Sales Operations Manager and has recently started to contribute to our blog discussing developments in our popular EQT (Ethernet Quoting Tool) and discussing the importance of customer retention. Here’s your chance to get to know her a little better….
How long have you worked at Entanet?
I have been at Entanet for 3 years and during that time so much has changed and progressed – it’s flown by!
What are your key responsibilities within the business and what are your areas of expertise?
My role as Sales Operations Manager is very varied which means no two days are the same. My responsibilities include ensuring the efficient processing of Ethernet quotes and orders through the team, managing ongoing development work to improve and enhance our popular Ethernet Quoting Tool (EQT), managing the in-life services team which look after all of our existing customers’ needs such as upgrades, renewals and migrations, overseeing the onboarding of all of our new channel partners and analysing sales performance data to identify ways to make our team and our processes more efficient.
To win new business in the UK’s fast moving connectivity market it’s crucial resellers have quick and easy access to information on the price and availability of cutting edge Ethernet products.
Working together with our partners Entanet has developed a comprehensive Ethernet Quoting Tool (EQT) to do just that and a number of recent exciting enhancements have been added to put even more power in the hands of the reseller:
A key development has been the creation of an API where our partners can integrate their own quoting systems with our EQT making the whole process of quoting and provisioning our services for the customer even more seamless.
By providing Gigabit-capable connectivity to your SME customers with free installation via the new voucher scheme from the Government, that’s how!
Last month we announced our full support of the Government’s new £2 million Gigabit Voucher Scheme which aims to accelerate the roll out of Gigabit-capable full-fibre services to business customers by making the switch to full-fibre more affordable for SMEs, whilst also generating a massive opportunity for our channel partners.
