Housebuilders connect before Christmas if you want happy broadband customers

UK Connect Urges Housebuilders to ‘Connect Before Christmas’

With less than a month until Christmas, many housebuilders across the UK will be working hard to ensure that new homes are complete for occupation before year end and that construction sites are ready for a launch in the New Year. Internet connection is crucial to supporting these time-critical activities, but can take up to nine months for a traditional communications provider to install. To combat this, UK Connect is urging developers to ‘connect before Christmas’ and consider Site Connect, its broadband solution which is installed within 10 days from the point of order.

As part of UK Connect’s mission to be the leading provider of communication solutions to the construction industry, Site Connect is also supported by a 10-day guarantee offer, cementing its promise of getting developments connected before Christmas – and at any other time of the year.

The solution is delivered so rapidly that Site Connect also acts as a disaster recovery system, providing the quick fix to get sites, whether in the marketing suite or project office, back up and running as a result of other internet connectivity failures.

Site Connect utilises 4G-LTE advanced technology, a form of 4G that is not typically accessible across the UK, to deliver secure internet connection – essential for enabling all construction and marketing teams to build, market and sell their new properties. This technology means that UK Connect can provide access speeds of up to 100 Mbps (megabits per second) against an industry average of just 30 Mbps.

PJ Farr, founder and managing director at UK Connect, said:

“Over 800 construction sites now use Site Connect – the highest number of building sites in our company’s history. However, we are still hearing cases about housebuilders who remain without internet connection during pivotal construction and sales milestones. This is why we are urging them to ‘connect before Christmas’ with Site Connect and avoid the set-up delays, ensuring housebuilders and their future residents can enjoy the festive period.”

Site Connect is just one of UK Connect’s mission-critical services provided to the construction industry. Home Connect allows customer services teams to offer their buyers high-speed internet access from the day they move in, while Voice Connect is an internet-based phone system that ensures a clear line and full sharing across multiple devices. UK Connect can also provide an analytics package – known as Inbound Connect – which enables sales and marketing colleagues to monitor, measure and evaluate sales leads, improving performance.
