Does my home have Full-Fibre Broadband?
So incredibly happy with our new broadband connection! We run a community building in Cambois with a baby group, arts workshops and boxing classes. FACTCO gave us a free connection which has massively helped all of our activities go up a level. From day one communication has been excellent, Ian was always available, evenings or weekends during the voucher process. The installation was smooth with super friendly technicians. And the speed – well it’s faster than Mo Farrah on The Nemesis. We never thought we’d get decent broadband in this little community and FACTCO has gone above and beyond to deliver for us! Thank you!
We’re so chuffed with the speeds we’re getting on FACTCO, buffering is a thing of the past! thanks so much!
I was very sceptical of this at the beginning as nothing seemed to be progressing very quickly, after seeing what’s gone into building a whole new infrastructure patience has paid off (after whinging).
So pleased with the set up doesn’t take up any space etc.
Lee who installed it Fantastic explained everything in detail nothing hurried went through the app etc. We give it a workout from going live Streaming 4k in one room PS5 in the other and 2 streaming on phones, not a bit of buffering Excellent. So pleased with this goodbye BT forever.
Fantastic company factco. Had super fast broadband installed in Cambois. Lee the engineer was so helpful. He came back late on a Friday to make sure the app was installed and our own extender to boost the connection in a garden room. After sales support contact is easy and very helpful. The speed is amazing. enabling several of us to connect and work from home. No loss of connection on video calls. I would recommend this to anyone.
Had a connection issue with our superfast boradband and got a call back from Technical Support within minutes, problem sorted and I may add it was down to me not having the router plugged in correctly!!
Keep up the good work and thanks for the very efficient service! 🙂
FACTCO , they have been very helpful. Best customer service and friendly. I would highly recommend switching to them for all your broadband needs !!!!
“The benefits of having a fibre internet connection is immeasurable – we now offer not only great co-working spaces and a talented community to be a part of but office spaces and studios that provide a powerful internet connection”
“Great professional and knowledgeable service. We have worked with FACTCO to update our broadband capabilities into our business centre. They have delivered more than we expected, their technical support have been great to deal with and the connections have been fast and secure. Can’t ask for more really.”
“We use FACTCO’s basic business broadband package. As we’re a small creative business it’s more than we’ll ever need. It’s great to know that we have a great level of support of their team – you’d never get that type of customer service when using the bigger brands. For a creative business like ours, technology isn’t really our forte, they keep things simple and always get issues fixed.”
