Listeners who tuned in to BBC Radio Shropshire on Monday 17th January at 16:50 heard Air Broadband’s Director, Andrew Glover talk about how full-fibre broadband will benefit the residents of Shropshire and the local community in and around Shrewsbury.

Andrew has spoken in the past about the rising demand for gigabit internet in Shrewsbury. In a recent press release he remarked on the hard fought process to get the area up and running:

“It has taken a long time to get to the stage of being able to provide services to these areas and there is a pent-up demand for a gigabit capable service in Shrewsbury.”

He explained the benefits for Shropshire residents – who will now get to experience Gigabit internet with some areas reaching speeds of up to 1,000 Mbps*. For instance, Gigabit internet affords families the freedom for each family member to stream buffer-free 4K television simultaneously or enjoy lag-free online gaming. Not to mention enjoy uninterrupted, crystal-clear work calls 24/7!

Air is currently offering free standard installation and a competitively priced service via the Fibre Heroes network. Simply pop in your postcode into our handy postcode checker and we will contact everyone who is able to take advantage of this service.

However, locals in Shrewsbury and the surrounding area who have already registered with Air Broadband will be first in line to go live.

Air Broadband is committed to using the latest high-tech infrastructure to dramatically improve the lives of people and communities in Shrewsbury, the surrounding areas in Shropshire and beyond. Our goal is to offer families and businesses stable home broadband, especially as many now work from home; entire livelihoods are now dependent on secure connections!

*Not all areas on the network can guarantee 1,000 Mbps. For more details, get in touch.
