September 2020 – We’re pleased to announce our Ashcott point of presence is live with the first gigabit fibre installed and active. The first FWA Point and GPON OLT are being installed and will become active in October 2020. This strategic site will create a more resilient network and connect on-wards towards Taunton and the Quantock Hills. This will provide much needed bandwidth for homes and businesses in the local area and to provide a backup backhaul for our DC Point of Presence currently in construction. With a potential coverage of over 10,000 homes and businesses and over 120Gbps of built-in capacity available, we’re planning on future growth.

The investment made in this site has primarily been to connect a small area with very problematic broadband, this saw businesses struggle and homes having to use mobile 4G broadband instead. Our solution provides an alternative solution that meets enterprise connectivity with speeds upto 10 Gbps available. We have 1 Gbps home and business solutions becoming available and upto 300 Mbps FWA option for the surrounding area.

Site sharing isn’t available at this stage however we hope to have this facility sometime in 2021 with the erection of further infrastructure. We look forward in providing more updates soon, any questions should be directed at team@westnetworks.co.uk.
