BeFibre commits to ‘upgrading customers worlds’ with Linksys partnership
The hardware firm will supply alt-net, BeFibre, with its MX4200 Wi-Fi 6 router - which features mesh technology, capable of delivering wi-fi speeds of 4.2Gbps, within a range of up to 2,700 sq. ft. and to over 40+ devices.
“We want to upgrade our customers’ worlds, transforming how they live, work and play,” commented BeFibre’s chief customer and operations officer, Louise Elliott. “After all, we need greater connectivity than ever before – whether we’re busy with video calls, working from home, binging on box-sets, or gaming.
“We chose the Linksys router because of its ability to deliver high-speed Wi-Fi across the entire home, enabling the user to make use of greater bandwidth – and ultimately enjoy the entirety of the broadband speeds they pay for.”
Albert Farag, vice president of Europe and Global ISP at Linksys added: “We’re very pleased to be partnering with BeFibre to bring premium Wi-Fi solutions that complement their full fibre broadband infrastructure. We’re confident this is a step in the right direction to making reliable Wi-Fi accessible to many in the UK.”
BeFibre plans to provide full fibre connectivity to up to 1,000,000 premises by 2027 – with £100m of private investment having been made available to support the firm in its bid to reach 80 towns and cities over the next five years.
The internet service provider’s privately-funded £100m network roll out is progressing well, and its fit-for-the-future broadband promises download and upload speeds up to 13 times faster than the fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) coverage that currently spans the majority of the UK*.
