Onestream, BT Wholesale sign partnership agreement
UK broadband provider Onestream has signed a strategic agreement with BT Wholesale, under which it will be able to offer customers connections through BT's FTTP and single SoGEA network.
The Whiteley, Hampshire-based provider was founded in 2016 as part of the Onecom Group and now stands independently as a residential internet service provider, with an average of 3,000 customers a month signing up for its totally unlimited services.
Under the new agreement, Onestream will be able to offer GFast connections to customers whose premises do not have access to direct fibre. GFast technology adjusts the frequencies of fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) connections so users receive optimum speeds of up to 330mb/s. The technology can be used to connect more than 2.8m UK premises that are without direct fibre access but are within suitable range of a service exchange cabinet.
Aaron Brown, co-founder of Onestream with fellow telecoms entrepreneur Darren Ridge, said: "This new partnership with BT Wholesale strengthens our ability to bring fast, reliable broadband to customers wherever they are in the UK, reinforcing our ability to bring resilient, high-quality broadband to more homes and businesses than any other provider.
"It adds new options to our portfolio, enabling us to tailor the right connection for each individual customer, connect them quickly once they sign up with us, and use our technical know-how to provide the fastest possible broadband even if they do not yet have access to FTTP.
"It's all part of our mission to make Onestream 'the one for everyone' – with the widest reach, fastest and most reliable connections, and industry-leading levels of customer service and expertise."
