The Kirklees CORE is a new, state-of-the-art, gigabit speed, pure fibre optic network that is delivering ultra-fast connectivity to businesses in Huddersfield.
Construction of the network is now complete and the first businesses are already taking advantage of gigabit speeds. Register your business today and see how you can get connected!
We open up a whole raft of leading-edge software and applications that could benefit your business, allowing you to work more efficiently.
Leave the megabit web behind. With up to a gig at your fingertips, you will be able to effortlessly send and receive even the largest files in a flash. 1 Gigabit is 1000 Mbps, that’s 10-100 times faster than most business connections.

By connecting to the Kirklees CORE you will leave the megabit web far behind. Pure fibre enables gigabit speeds that are practically impossible to deliver over older generation networks. With a Gigabit speed network running at up to 1000Mbps, you and your colleagues will be able to effortlessly send and receive even the largest video and graphic files. Tasks that previously would have taken hours such as online back-ups can be done in work-hours without affecting staff productivity.
Cloud computing offers every business a host of cost and time-saving benefits and with an ultra-fast connection you’ll extract maximum value.
Cloud computing offers huge cost and time-saving benefits, alongside much greater flexibility when it comes to how, when and where you access the internet. Rather than hosting software and data on your computer, it is stored remotely at a data centre (in the cloud). This means you can access it wherever and whenever you need it.
You are probably using cloud services already - things like Facebook, Dropbox and Gmail are all based in the cloud. Once you are hooked up to the CORE, the ultra-fast connectivity will let you get the most from the new generation of business specific applications, such as Google Docs, Office365 and online Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems.
For even the smallest businesses there will be big benefits. Cloud solutions are cost-effective; you simply pay on a per user basis and only for what you need. Security and upgrading are no longer an issue and your data is accessible from anywhere with an internet connection.
Crippling upload speeds are a thing of the past. Pure fibre enables broadband services that are as fast uploading large files as they are downloading them.
We recognise that uploading is often a bigger problem for businesses than downloading. Companies frequently leave large files to upload overnight to avoid choking their connection during the working day. Plenty of people even take files home to upload over their personal residential connection. That’s no way to work!
Unlike traditional broadband networks, we focus as much on upload speeds as we do on download speeds. Our pure fibre network enables us to offer symmetrical speed services, meaning your data can travel as fast upstream as it can downstream. This is simply not a possibility over older generation networks.
Don’t forget that when we say symmetrical speeds we’re also talking up to gigabit speeds – up to 1000Mbps in both directions – something most businesses can barely imagine

Storing your data remotely using cloud applications like Dropbox, Google Drive or Box becomes a practical solution with a pure fibre connection.
Use superfast broadband to back-up your data remotely, to ensure safety and easily retrieve lost documents
Remote data storage and online back-up is an essential part of day to day business for many companies, but for most of them, it is a huge source of irritation and inefficiency. Uploading large amounts of data over standard connections can take hours and will often consume most, if not all, of a businesses tiny upstream bandwidth. This can mean that any other online activities have to stop and wait for it the back-up to complete before resuming.
Ultra-fast connectivity means that online back-up and remote data storage finally becomes a practical and efficient solution. With up to 1000Mbps of upload speed, data can be uploaded to cloud services like Dropbox and Google Drive at any time of the day, without effecting everyone else’s connection.
