Business Fibre Broadband

At b4b Group, we offer a full range of Internet connectivity options for Northern Ireland businesses. These include:

  • Superfast Broadband with backup
  • Leased Line

Make sure you are getting the best internet option for your business. The quality of broadband your N.Ireland business can get depends on your location. Fibre broadband continues to roll out across Northern Ireland.

At b4b Group we work with all the main providers. That means we can quickly check which broadband option is available in your area, and then offer you a range of options depending on your needs and your budget.

Dedicated Connectivity

Many businesses in Northern Ireland now opt for a dedicated broadband connection, also referred to as a “Leased Line.”

With most business broadband connections, infrastructure and internet are shared with other domestic and business customers. That means that the speed of the broadband connection can vary, depending on time of day and demand from others who are using it.

With a leased line you benefit from a direct dedicated fibre connection that is shared with no one else, guaranteeing fast internet speeds. It is more expensive but it also faster, reliable and exclusive for your own business use.

Always On Internet

Many businesses rely completely on a shared fibre broadband (FTTV/FTTP) connection for their data, email and Internet requirements, as well as to make and receive voice calls.

If any unforeseen circumstance causes the connection to fail, all business communications will come to a standstill.

With b4b Group’s ‘Always On’ internet’ service your business can keep working.

This cloud managed solution will ensure you have access to Internet services while the main fixed line network is being repaired. Excellent for N.Ireland retail, hospitality, office, and other environments where constant internet provision is required.

Lines and calls

Standard business lines and calls are still with us. Analogue (PSTN) and digital lines (ISDN) are still the main connections used by businesses to make and receive calls.

This network will soon be replaced with VOiP and SIP alternatives.

In 2015 BT Openreach announced they would be switching off their entire analogue telephone network and moving to a digital infrastructure by 2025. This marks the biggest change to the telecoms industry for more than 30 years.

b4b Group will continue to offer traditional lines and calls as this changeover takes place.

SIP channels

For years the telecommunication network has relied on Analogue and ISDN lines to provide voice communication. That network will begin to disappear by 2025 and will be replaced by services that use a broadband platform.

Lines and calls are currently being replaced by a combination of SIP Channels and SIP trunks. SIP stands for Session Initiation Protocol, and is also commonly referred to as VoIP.

SIP and VoIP lines and calls are cheaper than analogue or ISDN lines so they will save your N.Ireland business money.

ISDN Switch off

BT released a statement in 2015, stating that it would stop taking orders for new ISDN orders in 2020 as part of the plan to switch off and deactivate the ISDN network in 2025.

Many businesses in Northern Ireland still use ISDN2 and ISDN30 in their business telephone and data communications.

Making sure your internet connection up to speed is essential to ensure a smooth transition to Cloud VoIP or SIP.
