Welcome to the June 2020 edition of the 2CC Newsletter, where you will find all of our latest news.
Wi-Fi 'Hot Spot'

Buffering and slow speeds should be a thing of the past, and here at 2CC we are working hard to ensure a seamless connection for businesses and households across the UK.
We have a wide range of connectivity solutions available to suit your needs, here are just a few;

CityFibre - This is the UK's third national digital infrastructure programme, and soon the whole country will run on CityFibre - one Gigabit City at a time. Find out today if you are in reach of the CityFibre network.

Leased Line - Leased Line connectivity is the ideal solution for those of us who depend on lightning fast broadband speeds - no more sharing bandwidth with others.

FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) - AKA Fibre Broadband. Helps you to achieve faster upload and download speeds whilst being very cost effective.

We'll do all of the complicated stuff - you get to do the fun part and can personalise your Wi-Fi name... can you top these?

Mobile Broadband

Alternatively to traditional broadband setups, you can also get broadband on your phone in the form of data, which you can use to tether to your other devices to maintain a strong internet connection.

Mobile data can be used;

  • When you are out and about (shopping, out for lunch, etc.)
  • When you are somewhere that doesn't offer guest Wi-Fi
  • As a back-up solution whenever your devices are not connecting to broadband effectively.
You can also create your own portable 4G Mobile Hotspot with a Mobile WiFi Router, which allows up to 16 device connections - perfect for friends and family or a very busy individual.
We also have a range of O2 data sim-only packages available for all levels of mobile hotspot usage, these are;

2GB -£11.50
8GB - £13
24GB - £15
50GB - £17
Unlimited - £20

Get in touch today to let us open up a world of opportunities with mobile broadband for you.

Getting ready to return to the office?

As we have been working from home for so long now, it can be daunting to think about finally getting back to normality and back into that routine - but it doesn't have to be!

Check out these tips we think will be very useful for the transition:

Most of us have been back in the Office for 2 weeks now and adhering to strict social distancing measures as well as having a number of other safety measures in place to protect ourselves and one another, including our trendy Face Shields.

With golf season just starting to tee off again after a brief halt, we are very eager to get back on to the course.
