Reliable, Ultrafast Broadband with a Scottish Twist

The television, the telephone, the pedal bicycle, the steam engine, golf, penicillin. There’s an awful lot that us Scots have invented but there’s one thing that we didn’t - broadband.

This explains then, why most broadband is mince. But what if the Scots had invented broadband, surely then it would be a hell of a lot better?

The answer to your question is yes it would - so much better in fact that we’d have to create a brand name that only the Scots would understand, to put the others off the scent and keep it all for ourselves. Keep scrolling to discover why BrawBand makes regular broadband look like an absolute dobber.

Full Fibre BrawBand Means No Copper

Here’s a little secret none of the big broadband providers want to tell you: most fibre broadband connections aren’t really fibre at all. They still rely on dated copper cable to run from the cabinet and into your house.

It’s the copper cable that slows you down, causing buffering and reliability issues when trying to connect multiple devices at the same time.

Gigabit Full Fibre BrawBand is different. The fibre cable runs directly to your house and provides ultrafast speeds, backed by incredible reliability and customer support based right here in Inverness. To put it another way, it’s braw.

More Questions, Really?

       

We've already told you - BrawBand is just like broadband, but braw. What else could you possibly want to know?

Most fibre broadband you see advertised is a product called FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet). With FTTC the fibre cable runs from the local exchange to one of the green cabinets you see sitting on the side of the street. From the cabinet to your house however, the cable is not fibre at all, it’s copper. It’s the copper wire that slows you down, and the further your house is from the nearest cabinet, the slower your connection is likely to be. 

It’s a bit like calling a taxi to take you home, only for the driver to stop a mile from your house and give you a piggy back the rest of the way (although admittedly that would be quite fun). 

BrawBand is a completely different product, commonly referred to as FTTH (Fibre to the Home) – this means the fibre cable is laid directly to your home, providing vastly improved speeds, reliability and security. To put it simply, BrawBand means no copper!

Depending on your package you can expect the following speeds:

The Wee One – 200Mbps Download and Upload

The Braw One – 500Mbps Download and Upload

The Big Yin – 900Mbps Download and Upload

Follow this Link for more information on what you can expect from your BrawBand speeds and what can influence the results.

We’re working as fast as we can to connect the whole of Inverness. If you go through the sign up process and your postcode isn’t available yet you will be invited to receive an email notification and phone call when your postcode comes on grid. 

BrawPhone will be live by April this year.  This will mean that you can get rid of that old copper line completely, but keep your number in a seamless changeover.  You can keep your present phone, or upgrade to a shiny new one, whatever works for you. We’ll be including calls to standard UK fixed and mobile numbers in our BrawPhone package, at a price which is less than your current copper line rental… now that’s braw!

You can be rest assured that your Internet connection is secure, it is underpinned by the HighNet core network which has had upwards of £6 million invested in it to make sure it is secure enough for some of the UK’s largest businesses to send their traffic across.  As well as being underpinned by a business grade network, we also provide a high specification router as standard with every BrawBand installation that comes with advanced security features as standard.

Once you have checked on our website that BrawBand is available at your property, you can place your order online via the website. Once your order is placed, we build a fibre optic cable to the outside of your property.

Your new fibre connection uses a new cable into your premises, so your BrawBand service will be unaffected by your current provider. You can have BrawBand installed, and then cancel with your current provider whenever it suits you.  Please be sure to check any contractual obligations and termination fees with your current supplier as this is not something BrawBand would do as part of the order process.

You can upgrade your package at any time through the BrawBand website.  This will not affect your minimum contract term and there will be no upgrade fee.

Yes, as long as you have the landlord’s permission.  As we will be installing a brand-new fibre cable into the premises and digging up the property/drilling holes you will need to gain the landlords permission before placing an order.

When placing your order online you will be provided with the next available appointment times for your installation and you can select the one most suitable for you.  Remember that you will have to be at home for the installation to be completed.

It’s simple to get up and running with BrawBand – here’s how it works:

  • Place your order via the BrawBand website and select a suitable appointment slot.
  • We’ll deliver your pre-configured router two days prior to your chosen installation day. 
  • Your engineer will confirm their arrival time beforehand – please make sure someone over the age of 18 is at home when they visit.
  • On the day, our engineer will let you know what they need to do to install your new line. Once you’re happy, put your feet up and let us take care of everything.

We have a team of BrawBuddies who specialise in helping clients with additional support. Please click here to meet our BrawBuddies.

Ideally the account holder should be there to make sure they are 100% happy with the installation. If this isn’t possible, a responsible adult needs to be present.

As we are installing a brand-new fibre network, we will be digging a route from the main fibre network directly into your property. We will also be installing a high spec fibre termination unit within your property to connect your new router in to.

With a BrawBand home broadband service you are not able to connect your own router to the BrawBand network.  We do not support routers other than the one we will provide upon installation.

As we provide all customers with the same router, it allows our support team to better understand any issues you may be experiencing and provide a quicker fix.

We have selected a device with very high spec that we feel will benefit your experience of using your new connection.  It is also capable of handling speeds of up to 1Gbps, which some legacy routers may struggle with.

We can supply you with a wireless mesh repeater that works seamlessly with your BrawBand provided router.  This will improve the wireless coverage within your home and enable your connection to go further without the need for additional cables.

The repeater works in conjunction with an app you download to your phone or tablet to help to measure, manage and optimise your wireless connection.  This is the perfect way to get your wifi as braw as your full fibre!

Take a look at the support section within your account page as you may find the answer to your query within there.  If you cannot find an appropriate answer then please log a ticket with our support team.

No, we’re great at ultrafast broadband but TV’s not our bag. What we can assure you is that your current TV streaming services will be supercharged with BrawBand, even when simultaneously streaming from multiple devices. 

Still scunnered?

That’s not Braw, so drop us an email at info@brawband.co.uk and the team will help you out.
