Connecting Rural Communities
Due to the re-introduction of the Covid lock down in Scotland, we have reduced the costs of extra data for our wireless service subscribers. For short term additional data, please visit the Borders Online Portal and use the 'top-up' facility there - currently it's more cost effective than moving to a larger package.
With restrictions on travel for essential purposes only, home visits have been suspended for all but emergency/urgent repairs, in order to keep our customers and staff safe. We will continue to review the situation and hope to be able to process new installs shortly.
In areas where Openreach have started to roll out fibre to the premises (FTTP) services, Borders Online can now provide customers with a fibre based service that has high speeds and unlimited usage allowances. For current wireless customers looking to upgrade, the existing radio based service is maintained as an automatic backup, should there be issues on the Openreach network.Learn More
Borders Online have built a radio network of masts across the Scottish Borders hills and surrounding communities, to provide Superfast Broadband to rural properties not currently served by the major providers. The service only needs a line of sight to one of our relay sites; no phone line is required. Providing speeds of 30Mbps download and offering various data usage tariffs to suit all users.Learn More
With our Wireless and Fibre services, you don't need a traditional land line for internet access, so in places where there is a reasonable mobile phone signal, there is then little need to have a land line at all.Learn More
Having a fast internet connection to your house is sometimes the tip of the iceberg when trying to do more online; with a slow connection poor Wi-Fi within the house is not noticed, or it is blamed on the internet connection itself. So whether you get our Superfast Wireless or the Ultrafast Fibre broadband installed, you will often also need to invest in your Wi-Fi setup, so it can cope with the faster speeds.Learn More
As well as supplying broadband Borders Online also offer bespoke networking services to local businesses, from helping set up your local area network within your business to more complex set ups such as OSPF, MPLS and BGP.Learn More
