Fibre connectivity is the process of using high-speed network cables made up of strands of glass fibres to connect devices to the internet. Fibre is the fastest and most reliable internet connection for modern businesses.
What is an Internet Service Provider (ISP)?
An Internet Service Provider (ISP) is a company that provides internet connections and services to individuals and organisations utilising a physical fibre network infrastructure. ISPs make it possible for business owners to connect to the internet to conduct business, operate VOIP systems and POS systems, CCTV surveillance, access virtual servers, and operate devices, business tools and other technologies that require a reliable, high-speed internet connection.
Can my business use any Internet Service Provider (ISP)?
Yes. Open Fibre offers tenants an array of trusted, leading Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to choose from.
What is Open Access?
Open Access typically means that access to the fibre network is given to multiple service providers and wholesale services on one physical network infrastructure. This way ISPs can reach subscribers/customers without needing to install a fibre access network themselves.

Open Fibre can connect a business in under 5 days in a live building.

Network whilst continuing to utilise their ‘Head Office approved’ Internet Service Provider (ISP). Enterprise tenants deserve enterprise-grade internet connectivity.
Does Open Fibre offer flexible or monthly contracts?
Open Fibre operates with several Internet Service Providers (ISPs) which offer monthly, annual and long-term contracts.
What if my business is already connected to fibre?
