Our Worthing Based Engineers Are Among Our Best Assets

local broadband, fast broadband, Worthing broadbandBriant Broadband prides itself on being a Worthing based company who offer excellent, friendly, expert customer service.

Being local we like to think that we know our customers, their needs, and the unique service issues living on the South Downs brings. As expert installers with years of experience between us, we know that we can surmount most of these issues and deliver the kind of service that any paying customer has the right to expect and demand.

Being Worthing based gives us unique insight into the way we can best serve our customers. When you call us you’re not talking to someone on a call centre thousands of miles away, you’re speaking to a neighbour who know your area. If you’re looking for a wireless connection we know which buildings might get in the way of your signal while if you’re waiting for a fibre connection we know which areas are being connected at present, which are already connected, and which will be getting connected in the coming months. That kind of local knowledge can’t be emulated by someone who isn’t even sure where Worthing is!

Being local means we’re responsive too. If you’ve been shopping around for a new broadband deal recently you’ll have seen that connection can take up to two weeks while pre-orders can be anything up to three months depending on the service you want. Briant Broadband promise to get you connected with 48 hours or we’ll give you a month’s internet free. It’s being local which makes that possible; we just need to grab a router or wireless receiver from stock and we can come over and install it for you right away. No sending out routers by post or courier for us! Read more

Why We Think ‘Local’ Is Briant Broadband’s Unique Selling Point

broadband supplier, ISP, worthing ISP, worthing broadband,Briant Broadband prides itself on being a local company which brings friendly, expert customer service to the broadband internet provider industry, but why is ‘local’ so important?

Many other Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will let you know that they’re local, but in reality they’re either re-selling the same products as the national ISPs or they consider ‘local’ to be anywhere in the south of England.

Briant Broadband is different because we are your only genuine local ISP. Our service area stretches as far as Hove to the east, East Preston to the west and a few miles inland from Worthing up into the South Downs, and because all our company directors and engineers live in Worthing we feel we have the right to say local!

What does having a local ISP mean to our customers?

When you signed on with your first broadband contract you probably had to wait several days to be connected. You might have received a router in the mail, or even had to wait for an engineer to come and connect you. Because all our engineers live in Worthing we’re able to install your router or wireless receiver in 2 days or quicker. If we can’t get you up and running within 48 hours we’ll give you a month’s internet for free, but we’re usually able to connect you even faster than that.

Local also means that you can pop into our offices and talk to us about what you need. We’re always happy to chat data! It gives you a chance to get to know us, and us to get to know what it is you need so we can advise you on the best package for your needs. And we don’t oversell. We don’t need to! With our flexible packages you can switch to a different plan any time you like, without admin fees or other hidden extras. In fact, if you’re going to be away from home for 30 days or more you can pause your package altogether so you’re not paying for something you’re not using. Read more

Why Choose Briant Broadband Superfast Wireless?

superfast wireless, wireless broadband, worthing broadband, sussex broadband, worthing wirelessBriant Broadband is the only truly local Worthing based broadband internet service provider, offering superfast wireless or Full Fibre solutions to everyone in the wider Adur and Worthing area.

Briant Broadband are partnered with Cityfibre, who are currently installing and connecting homes in Worthing, but what if you’re not in one of the towns or villages at the top of their list for installation?

That’s where Briant Broadband’s Superfast Wireless comes in!

Homes and businesses which aren’t due to be connected to Full Fibre in the immediate future could easily and quickly be connected to Briant Broadband’s superfast wireless service instead. Many of the people who come within our coverage area have never been well served by the best known internet service providers before. Slow connection, unreliable service and high prices have been a problem for people of the South Downs for some time, but Briant Broadband aims to put an end to that.

Instead of connecting you to the internet via a phone line or fibre optic cable if you choose wireless we can install a receiver in next to no time. And once you’re connected you’ll be able to receive up to 200 Mbps (depending on the wireless plan you choose) meaning that you’ll be able to stream movies, download music, share files and browse the internet faster than you ever have before!

Unique Plans For Adur, Worthing and Beyond

We currently offer two products via our wireless connection for properties which can’t get Full Fibre yet: up to 100 Mbps for £22.00 pre month or up to 200 Mbps for £40.00 per month. If you’ve been underserved by your current broadband internet service provider up until now you’ll be amazed at what your computer, phone and Smart Home devices are able to do when this much data is available.

Because Briant Broadband is a small, local company we’re able to recognise and react to the very specific needs of the people in our area. We know that the main broadband companies didn’t pay enough attention to smaller towns and villages in West Sussex and we aim to solve that. We WILL bring you Full Fibre when it’s feasible, but in the meantime we are making amazing speeds available so you’re not left behind.

And because we’re a local business friendly, expert customer service is very much within our remit. Part of that is ensuring our customers receive satisfaction as quickly as possible. That’s why we introduced our ‘Challenge Us’ promise. If we can’t connect you to the internet within 48 hours of your call to us, we’ll give you a month’s broadband for free.

What’s more, we’re so confident that you’ll love the service you receive from us that we’re giving away a month’s data free with every friend that you recommend. Once your friend or neighbour comes aboard we’ll give both of you a month’s broadband free of charge.

Who Are Briant Broadband?

broadband deals, superfast broadband, ultrafast broadband, contractless, contract free,Briant Broadband was established in 2020 to service a need which we had identified in Adur and Worthing; that of reliable, high speed, affordable wireless and Full Fibre broadband. We supply superfast wireless broadband with speeds up to 100 Mbps via receivers which we install within 48 hours of agreeing to take our service. So long as your home is in ‘line of sight’ with our transmitters in Worthing you will be able to receive first class superfast broadband.

If you want faster speeds, or you’re in a shadowed area where the masts can’t be seen then our Full Fibre superfast and ultrafast broadband packages are just what you’re looking for. With Full Fibre (powered by Cityfibre), that means installing fibre optic cable which goes uninterrupted from your home to the local exchange, so you get reliable, stable data at speeds up to 900 Mbps.

Briant Broadband offer a much larger range of broadband packages than our competitors, and there’s a reason for that. Because Briant Broadband are a truly independent data provider (we don’t just re-sell other another company’s product) we pride ourselves on our flexibility. We want our customers to be able to increase or decrease their data speeds depending on their use and budget. If you find that you’re service is actually too slow you can increase your speed with a call to our Worthing based offices. On the other hand if you feel you’re not using as much data as you expected you can cut down on your costs by choosing a lower speed option. ‘Good old fashioned local customer service’ is our watchword, so we do this for you without hassle, or admin fees.

Why Should You Choose Briant Broadband?

When you’re shopping around for a new broadband internet service provider there are a range of different things you need: speed, reliability, and a good price. The great thing is, Briant Broadband has that and more.

Briant Broadband provides a wide range of different plans, more than just about any other broadband provider on the market. We pride ourselves on our flexibility when it comes to the service we provide to our customers. When you take out a plan with Briant Broadband you’re not tied into a contract like you are with other providers. If you find that the plan you start with turns out to be unsuitable you can change it. If it’s too expensive you can go to a slower package for which we charge less, or, if you’re not getting the speed you need you can move to a faster plan. We’ll adjust your bill accordingly, but we won’t charge you an admin fee for changing. You can also pause your package if you’re going to be away from home for 30 days or more, because we don’t expect you to pay for something you’re not using.

How does that equate to so many plans? Well, because we have several plans stretching from £22 per month to £40 per month it makes it easier for our customers to budget. So if you found that your 100 Mbps plan was too slow the next level up is our 150 Mbps which is only a few pounds more. Without the range of plans to choose from the next stage up would cost at least £10 a month more. Read more

But what is Superfast Wireless, Ultrafast Full Fibre, and what do the speeds mean to you as a consumer? 

Briant Broadband’s Superfast wireless broadband is available to people living in Worthing and beyond who can see the top of the Bayside apartment building from their home. We have a transmitter located on Bayside’s roof which we use to beam broadband data without the need for cables, phone lines or line rental. Because it’s wireless we are limited to the amount of data we can supply, currently that’s 100 Mbps to each customer. However, that ‘limit’ still allows us to deliver data speeds greater than you would have expected to find with a service which depended on copper phone lines. Read more

Broadband Data Prices Are On The Rise, But Not At Briant’s!

The cost of living is going up, and there seems to be very little we can do about it. Energy providers are shutting down and making it almost impossible to shop around for other companies. There are gaps on the shelves of supermarkets as products and the ingredients necessary to make our own foods are stuck at borders, making food more expensive over-all, and now, to follow suit, all the big name broadband providers are hiking their prices too.

If you’re with Virgin you have the opportunity to quit your contract by 18th of February because they don’t have a clause in their broadband data contract with lets them put their prices up annually, meaning that one their price rises are announce they have to give their customers the chance to opt out.

If you’re with any of the other main broadband internet providers your options are rather more limited as they do have clauses in their contracts which allow them to increase how much you pay.

And if you’re affected by the price rises, you could face having to find a lot more for your broadband data. Depending on your provider and the contract you’re in, it could see your bill going up by more than 20%. That can be more than £50 per year for many users, users who, according to many comments on Facebook and Twitter are generally unhappy with the levels of reliability, customer service, and professionalism shown at many levels, including call centres, help desks, and engineers.

Are You A Virgin Media Customer Looking For A Better Deal?

virgin price rise 2022Are you a Virgin Media customer looking for a better deal following their price hike announcement?

Virgin have announced that on the first of March they will be increasing the prices of their broadband packages across the board, affecting people both in current contracts and those who have been with Virgin for more than 18 months and continue to pay their legacy pricing.

If you’re in a contract reports suggest that you could end up paying £56 per year more for your data, while those who never changed after their contract expired could face increases of up to 45% depending on what package they were on when they were in contract.

Virgin put a price freeze on their broadband prices in 2020 to help people adjusting to Coronavirus as we all needed to use broadband for work, school, entertainment and news, but this increase is the second since then. Because Virgin doesn’t have an annual price increase clause in its contract there is a way out if you’re affected by those price increases and you’re not happy. Virgin are giving their customers until February (some reports say the fifteenth, some the eighteenth, so we’d suggest acting before the fifteenth to be on the safe side) to cancel their contract without incurring a cancellation fee.

What Happens If You Stream Pirated Moves Via VPN?

home cinema, tv hanging, tv mounting, tv wall hanging, tv wall mountingYou’ve got your VPN set up to protect your anonymity online, now should you use it to watch pirated streaming movies?

First of all, of course not! That would be illegal and, as we all know video pirating is killing the entertainment industry.

But… As there are so many foreign language streaming sites out there which only give you the title of the film in English you might have absolutely believed that you were on a legitimate website right? And of course the VPN (Virtual Private Network) disguises your location anyway, so IN THEORY nobody would know it was you in the first place.

The purpose of a VPN isn’t to protect you from unwanted advertising, nor stop your web browser from tracking your visits and keeping cookies, and won’t stop anyone you live or share a computer with from seeing your history. So while there are many VPNs available, free or subscription based, using browser extensions or apps, they’re not necessarily the best, and certainly not the only option for more secure video streaming.

Getting the most out of your Google Assistant

google assistant, smart home assistant, smart home automationGoogle Assistant can help with almost anything these days, including looking up your old photos, helping you find new podcasts to fall in love with, and finding your phone.
If you’re forgetful or absent minded and you’ve got a Google Assistant then you’ll most likely already know how to use your Google Assistant to remind you to do things but there’s a whole world of things your Smart Assistant can help with.

Making lists and notes

First of all you’ll need to add an app such as Google Keep, Any.do, or Bring to your Google Assistant. Keeping things on brand will probably cause the least friction, and Google Keep is a great resource for keeping everything online you want to read, listen to, or watch later in one place. Even before you start adding your own lists or sheets to it, you can identify any websites you find with labels of your own, making them easy to organise. Read more
