As we settled in to the first ‘official’ work week of the nationwide lockdown,leading fibre and broadband company,Supersonic announce that they’re upgrading their core networks and NNIs (network to network interface) to be able to offer all their customers upgraded line speeds across all the networks.
“Work on our core network upgrades to be able to accommodate the forecasted increase in network traffic – including peering to fixed line network operators plus the relevant internet exchanges, is well underway,” says Calvin Collett, Managing Director for Supersonic. “The upgrades are vital so we can ensure we continue delivering a brighter service under these ‘not-so-bright’ circumstances,” he continues.
Most of the necessary upgrades aim to be completed by 3rd April 2020 and all customers will automatically be upgraded to the next line speed. “With the capacity we’re able to introduce to the network will also afford us the opportunity to develop a host of new products which we’ll launch within the next couple of weeks,” says Calvin.
Vumatel, Frogfoot and Waterfall Access Networks have announced that they’ll be offering their customers free line upgrades and billing relief for the next couple of months. Supersonic has also committed to support these operators, as well as any other FNOs who follow suit in keeping their customers connected.
