Juice Broadband expands FWA network to East Dorset and West Hampshire

Juice Broadband has announced expansion of their broadband network coverage into new areas of East Dorset and West Hampshire. The Poole-based provider has extended their fibre-optic supported Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) service, capable of 50Mbps, using a transmission tower installed in Christchurch on St Catherines Hill.

The ISP already has coverage over Poole and Bournemouth towns and the new tower adds Hightown, Matchams, Bisterne, Shirley, Bockhampton, Burton, Noth Kingston, Avon, Winkton, Sopley and Ripley. To cover South Hurn, an additional tower has been located in Hurn.

Juice Broadband is an official supplier of the government’s 2Mbps USC. Therefore subscribers can avail the Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme that helps isolated premises to get a faster connection by offering vouchers worth up to £400. Residential connections are typically priced at a start of £25 a month, on a 30Mbps download and 2Mbps upload service, offering 50GB of data on a 12-month contract period. An Installation fee of £99 is also charged, but a Wi-Fi router is included into the packages.

For their top 50Mbps download (and 5Mbps upload) package, with unlimited usage, the price rises to £49 a month. The ISP also offers other business packages. Juice Broadband has the ability to provide connection speeds of up to 1,000Mbps, via fibre-optic broadband on FTTP/H tech. However, this service seems to be targeted at multi-tenancy units or large office buildings.

Director of Juice Broadband, Wayne Simpson, said they are pleased to serve areas where internet access speeds are far behind the national average in many cases. He added that one of the differences of their service is that upload and download speeds are not ‘up to’ speeds, but actual.
