We will be upgrading our systems, starting with the oldest Network segments which cover the largest customer base first and will contact customers in the related areas prior to the work commencing, so they are aware of any planned down time.
Points to Ponder..
There is a lot of 'hype' about the Tax payer sponsored roll out of 'Fibre' services at the moment and I am sure they can achieve quite a lot with a £1.2Bn+ benefit cheque. Ultimately though the technology used falls down in many situations. The speed depends on the length and quality of your phone line in the same way as the old ADSL Broadband did. Just with much shorter distances of typically 1km or less to the cabinet.
Kijoma's solution has many benefits over this, including :-
1 - Providing Super Fast to customers from 10's of metres to 10's of miles away from our access Aerials. All of them still capable of the same service speed and low latency/delay.
2- No reliance on phone line technology. Our customers do not need a phone line or to pay £15+ a month for the privilege of having one on top of their Broadband fee.
3 - Kijoma supports VoIP , that is Internet Telephone. We use this exclusively for our business and so do many of our customers, including schools and businesses. The cost saving over fixed lines is considerable and the benefits increase exponentially with additional lines and services, all without installation costs and more line rentals.
4 - Kijoma link directly to the backbone of the Internet via such providers as LEVEL 3, a multinational Tier 1 (top level) Provider. There are no restrictive exchanges or multi middle men. Unlike other Providers who rely on phone lines, we own our Network and maintain it ourselves. We are not just some 'parasitic reseller'.
5 - Kijoma does not rely on state aid or grants/hand outs. We operate a commercial, profitable and sustainable business and have grown year on year since inception in 2000, regardless of the political and economic climate.
6 - Kijoma do not filter or otherwise restrict different Network protocols or services. Our usage allowances are clear, not obfuscated in the small print like many 'unlimited' services.
