The BNET concession was created by Bristol City Council to increase the availability of Gigabit fibre Internet across the City of Bristol.
The BNET (Bristol Network) comprises over 100Km of duct and optical fibre, owned by The City Council, it has been around for 15 years and supports all of the authority’s requirements including telephony, data and traffic related communications. It is constantly being expanded to provide increased coverage throughout Bristol. This huge asset is now driving Bristol forwards into the Gigabit age. Utilising BNET, Hub Network Services are offering a full range of high speed Internet and data services across Bristol, from low cost Gigabit Internet to high speed 10 Gigabit services, Co-location and Cloud Connect.
Not all fibre connections are the same. Unlike other technologies, BNET uses a dedicated fibre pair from your premises to the exchange.
