Internet speed in Blackpool is the fastest in the UK to the US. With a £3m fibre investment in a backbone along the promenade 5 mins from the house, we have access to super-fast internet. It’s not live yet as Captain Corona is holding things up at the moment, but we have it booked to be live ASAP and the fibre cables are now laid to the house.
The backup ISP provides 1oo Mbps dedicated, not shared with any other users and shows up as 114 Mbps on the wifi in most places around the house.
So, for now, that’s what you will be working on. Due to Corona, we cannot have the max capacity so you will be sharing a dedicated 100 Mbps connection max 7 people. For Skype calls, downloading etc. and fast raising that is more than enough.
It will be rare that all double rooms will be booked out for two people. If so, the maximum amount of people sharing the network will be 15 as that’s how many people we can take at any one time.
We don’t have an internet café or day passes, so you can be sure you will not get slow speeds due to a huge amount of users.
We invested a load of money in our network. 8 enterprise wifi access points, two on each floor. Every guest gets their own desk and dedicated Ethernet connection to the network for super-fast speeds.
Fibre to the house and Cat6 through the house bringing you 800 Mbps over wifi and 1,000 Mbps over ethernet connections.
The step-up for 5G has been delayed due to Corona but it was due to launch in 2019 here in Blackpool. Once active will be bonding the 5G with the 100 Mbps dedicated and the 1,000 Mbps connection to provide a connection over around 1,300 Mbps.
Internet speed in Blackpool is very fast and with the 5G bonded into the fibre connection, we will have probably the fastest connection you will have ever worked on within a coworking space in the UK.
