bigblu Signs Retail Distribution Agreement with Get Connected
27th April 2020
Get Connected, the UK’s largest communications high-street retailer is set to become the first multi-branch high street communications retailer to offer its customers a truly national high-speed broadband solution through satellite broadband provider bigblu.
The service offered by bigblu delivers broadband speeds of up to 50Mbs, with customer tariffs starting from as little as £24.99 per month. Furthermore and uniquely for satellite broadband, bigblu tariffs have no data caps so customers do not incur additional monthly fees, plus the dish and fixtures are free with a subsidised installation at £49.99, significantly reducing barriers to taking the service.
Get Connected, who have a large high street presence across Wales, as well as in the South West and the West Midland, are ideally placed to take advantage of the 100,000 households in the Welsh counties that can’t connect to a fibre network or other fast fixed broadband networks. Get Connected General Manager, Ben French, commented “bigblu’s broadband service is an exciting opportunity for us as it complements our existing portfolio of broadband products which we offer and means that we are the first high-street communications retailer to truly offer customers superfast broadband wherever they live”.
bigblu’s Head of Indirect Sales, Central & Northern Europe, Ed Sawday added “our product crosses the digital divide, delivering superfast broadband to those who can’t access fibre networks including rural & semi-rural communities. Get Connected high-street presence is ideally suited to reach these communities as well as households in larger cities where pockets of slow broadband speeds frequently exist”.
