Secure Web Services (SWS) has recently commissioned additional fibre backhaul in the Corvedale valley to extend its broadband coverage to thousands more properties in south Shropshire. Two similar fibre nodes, adding further coverage, are expected to be commissioned over the next 12 months; one in the north-west and one in the south-west of the county.
Secure Web Services (SWS) has been delivering reliable high speed broadband to properties in Shropshire since 2005. Broadband connections of 30Mbps+ are delivered over low power, Line-of-Sight radios. You don’t even need a telephone line to use it and you can still use your landline equipment and number through a VoIP system at a cheaper, fixed price with unlimited calls.
Nic Laurens, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member with responsibility for broadband, said:
“Secure Web Services are doing a great job in deploying a superfast broadband network without any public subsidy and have an excellent approach, collaborating with Connecting Shropshire to address the challenge of rural broadband infrastructure deployment.
“To hear that SWS are investing in and growing their network to provide even greater coverage is fantastic, and helps towards Shropshire Council’s aim of providing all homes and businesses with access to superfast broadband.
“As Cabinet member for economic growth, I know how important good connectivity is for Shropshire businesses, especially those in the visitor economy, which are often located in places remote from a wired broadband connection. It’s wonderful to read about how superfast broadband connectivity has benefited award-winning Eaton Manor, making them more attractive to visitors and streamlining their business operations.”
