Glide Group Delivers Gigabit Fibre Broadband Across the Midlands

Glide Group is upgrading its fibre infrastructure in Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham and Birmingham and introducing its new range of Glide Gigabit full-fibre broadband services to offer symmetric 10 Gbit/s speeds with low latency.

Glide has brought full-fibre broadband directly to business parks underserved by larger ISPs. Every metre of fibre that Glide lays is gigabit-capable. Entry-level services are FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) broadband with the latest generation WiFi6 routers.

Glide is physically laying fibre end-to-end all the way from its own local infrastructure and roadside green cabinets, across its own national core network to the Internet. As a result of its acquisition of Concept Solutions People in May, Glide has been able to accelerate its fibre build in strategic locations.

Tim Pilcher, CEO of Glide Group said: “Glide’s business started out in Coventry and our rollout of 10 Gbit/s capable infrastructure will provide local businesses with fibre that offers fast and reliable connectivity. SME businesses took a hit from the pandemic and with the growing need for robust cloud-based business applications, it is our priority to equip the Midland’s business community with the best fibre connectivity possible.”
