Geraldine Grewal is public relations officer of Geo, a leading provider of bespoke fibre networks. Geo are the people you want to talk to when you need 255mb a second delivered into your home office. Or to connect your company to another, at a reaaaaally fast speed.
I wouldn’t mind one of those connections in my place, actually. I once had a 155mb connection installed in my place in Charlton Street, just above Euston Road, in London. It was 155mb for about 20 minutes whilst the engineers tested it. Then they switched it back to 0.5mb as that’s what I was paying for. Joy. This was before broadband.
We get sent a lot of releases here at Mobile Industry Review — not all of them are relevant and not all of them fit into our sphere of interest — but this one caught my eye.
Firstly, it’s about lotsa-meg. Any mobile genius worth his or her salt will have an interest in megs-per-second. Or, in Geo’s case, gigs-per-second. It’s all about the speed, right?
Second, the press release title was simply: Fibre, network, london, sewer.
Gifted. A gifted title. Does-wot-it-sayz-on-the-tin.
A little more info:
Geo, a leading provider of bespoke fibre networks, today announced a refresh of their Geo.Metro product portfolio which includes the launch of Geo.ONE PLUS (1Gbit/s plus), Geo.TEN (10Gbit/s) and Geo.TEN PLUS (2 x 10Gbit/s), all scalable Managed Network Service solutions for businesses in London. The company is the only network provider to have deployed optical fibre via the Thames Water sewer system.
Geoâ€™s high speed solution has been designed for medium to large sized organisations that require a secure and reliable network to connect multiple sites across the capital. Geo also offers dedicated fibre for customers who prefer to manage and own their own network infrastructure.
Fibre, network, London, sewer, yes, please. Although I don’t expect it will compete very effectively on price with o2’s recently announced Â£20/month mobile and home broadband solution.
There is a video of the Geo CEO talking about the concept on their front page. I’d have linked it here if it was embeddable.
I’m going to ask Steve O’Donnell of The Hot Aisle and Martin MacLeod (ye Brother and fellow data speed nut) of BladeWatch for their viewpoints. I reckon they’ll be overwhelmingly positive of the concept.
