Resilience

The Loop’s fibre network  is diversely routed for extra resilience, and is based on a multiple ring topology. This means virtually no disturbance from ground works.

Low Latency

Microseconds can matter in many real-time internet applications and transactions, especially when split-second decisions need to be taken. The Loop’s network takes the shortest physical route possible wherever it can, minimising delays and latency. And shaving valuable time off responses.

Uncontended

Unlike normal internet access where your connection is all too often contended (shared) between several companies and users, The Loop’s internet solution gives you 100% of the bandwidth, 100% of the time. No sharing. You get what you pay for.

Why choose High Speed Business Internet from The Loop Manchester?

That’s a good question, and one with multiple answers.

For some, it’s because, well, because of our network. Wholly owned by us, it offers a unique blend of extensive reach and robustness, spanning Manchester, Salford and Trafford and configured as three rings for diversity and redundancy. Our fibre is buried deeper beneath the streets than other networks for greater resilience and security.

For some, it’s because we already interconnect Manchester’s most important digital locations including data centres and media city to each other and to the world.

For some it’s because our operations, provisioning and support teams are based right here in the city. From delivering new connections to resolving tickets on existing ones, we get the job done while national providers are still thinking about it.

For some it’s a matter of cost. Because we wholly own the network, we can deliver services at highly competitive prices.

And for some it’s because we are local and responsive, but backed by the technical and financial weight of Gamma Communications plc, one of the UK’s most innovative and successful unified communications providers.

Whatever your reason for choosing The Loop, the fact is you’ll be in good company.

Understand how we ensure quality service

At The Loop, we deliver the same impeccable quality standards as our parent company Gamma Communications plc, the UK-wide unified communications provider to customers including FTSE100 organisations, government and the NHS.

That means a comprehensive service governance model, with the majority of products certified to ISO22301, ISO27001 and ND1643 (OFCOM’s mandated security standard for next generation operators).

But quality is about more than ISO specifications, very important though they are. It’s also about people, about corporate culture and about having a certain approach to customer service.

We recognise that without customers we have no business, and so our entire organisation is shaped to deliver higher quality service than any other supplier in our sector.

From our network operations centre in the centre of Manchester, to the sales, provisioning and support teams that work from the same site, it’s customer-first.

Simply, we aim to deliver the most technically advanced and robust voice, data and business Internet possible, backed by a responsiveness and affordability that is second to none.

At The Loop, when we say quality, that’s what we’re talking about.
