What a year that was!

What a year that was!

Despite starting the year in a full lockdown, it’s been an extremely busy year for us here at Juice, ploughing through, delivering essential services in the form of Internet connectivity.

New Partnerships

Early in the year we began our journey partnering with Tier 1 providers CityFibre, who themselves have been working tirelessly to deliver direct fibre to homes and businesses throughout Bournemouth.  We are regularly connecting customers to CityFibre on a daily basis now,  It’s an exciting time for us,  witnessing a real sea change in broadband technology moving to fibre optic, replacing the World War 2 copper infrastructure we’ve been relying on for so long.  As time goes on more and more of us will connect via direct fibre at our homes and businesses.  This last two years have really shone a light on our reliance on connectivity, whether working from home, getting used to the dreaded Zoom calls or connecting with friends and family that we were unable to visit (remember those quiz nights!), and even reconnecting with friends from years ago that we would probably never have done had we not been forced to stay at home and had the time to rekindle our past relationships.

Converged Services

One big trend we have seen this year is converged connectivity for Voice and data.  Some of our customers are making timely moves away from traditional analogue and digital telephone systems and are making the move to VoIP.  VoIP had traditionally been difficult to deliver on ADSL broadband due to the erratic, contended nature of broadband speeds, resulting in broken real time voice conversations and jitter.  Our Fibre to the Mast (FTTM) solution is uncontended, and our customers that have made the move to VoIP are using a single FTTM connection for both Voice and Data, delivering clear, reliable voice services via our Cloud telephone systems, whilst benefiting from our ultrafast microwave connectivity.  No phone lines required!

Shopping for Internet Locally

We’ve helped some great new local businesses get up and running this year with connections, phones and Wi-Fi, which not only makes us feel all nice and fuzzy, but the bigger picture for this is that money spent locally stays here and the local economy begins to become self-generating.  We always look to support local and use services and products close to us.  Juice is unique in the fact that we are the only local Internet Service Provider with a depth of products that suit every home or business in the region, coupled with a local support team on hand to help should you need it.

Thank you, and Moving On to 22

All the team  at Juice would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our fantastic customers, couriers,  suppliers and of course our amazing NHS service, who have helped us to  try and drive forward  throughout a ridiculously challenging year for everybody.  We’d love to work with you in the new year and beyond, so if you need Internet, give us a call and we will work on the best solution for your requirements.

Merry Christmas and happy New Year to all.
