What is Fram broadband?

FramBroadband is a community broadband scheme based in Suffolk with 12 access points so far across Framlingham, Saxtead, Earl Soham, Brundish, Dennington and Laxfield. Providing broadband to over 100 homes and businesses each with an aerial on their building. FramBroadband is a wireless broadband provider catering to not spots and nearly not spots in rural Suffolk.

Frambroadband was established in 2003 to serve areas where broadband was either poor or not available. As of August 2013 FramBroadband has changed hands. FramBroadband returns to Framlingham Technology Centre under the management of 3 local businessmen who are looking to build a comprehensive broadband network across the county. The future plans for FramBroadband are to expand the network to allow many more villages and towns to benefit from FramBroadband coverage and service.

How it works

We provide a fibre optic connection back to the main London internet hub.
We take the feed and beam it wirelessly from Framlingham Technology Centre to a series of access points across Suffolk.
These access points connect to the aerial on your home or office and transmit the internet to you.

What are access points?

Access points are very high speed internet hubs mainly located on churches and other high points, such as Framlingham College.

NEXT STEPS: HOW TO GET CONNECTED

1. Contact Ed or Oli on 01728 726507 or info@frambroadband.com and we will book you in for a free survey.
2. Oli will then assess whether or not we can provide you service from our access point aerials by visiting
your property and discuss with you the most suitable location for your aerial to be placed.
3. We agree a convenient time for your aerial to be installed.
4. The installer then visits your home or business, leaving you with a confirmed connection to a router.

FAQS

Can I keep my current email address?

Yes, but it depends on your current provider. Some providers such as Virgin will not allow you to retain your email address once you leave their service. However, Yahoomail, Gmail and hotmail will allow you to retain your email address regardless of provider. So will Frambroadband.You must contact your email provider to find out their policy.

What's the difference between wifi and wireless broadband?

Wifi is the ability for users to connect to the internet from an enabled device, such as a smart phone, tablet or laptop, via a wifi router such as a BT homehub or Netgear router. Wireless broadband is the provision of connectivity to your home or business via aerials, in place of a telephone or cable connection. This signal cannot be connected to by a standard wifi device and requires a router to be accessed by you.

Do I require a telephone line?

No, you can get rid of your landline and still receive this service.

Can I keep my router?

We provide a router as part of the install package and charge a fee to reconfigure your existing router.

Is there an installation fee?

Yes, our standard installation charge is £200. If your installation is non-standard and requires additional works we will inform you at the survey and provide a quote.

Can you connect to a secondary location on my premises? Such as a garden office.

Yes (subject to survey) but this will be treated as a non-standard installation and will require a quote for the additional works.

What's included in a standard installation?

Provision of equipment and installation including all wiring to a pre-agreed location in your house/business. When we leave a premises after an installation you will have an aerial at the agreed point, a Cat5e cable connection to a power source (double socket) and router in a pre-agreed location. This will provide you with a wifi network and a hardwired connection if you choose.

I have a Grade II listed building, does this effect installation?

No. The aerial is small enough that it does not constitute a material change to the building and therefore does not require a permit.

Where will the aerial be installed?

In most cases the aerial will be installed at the highest point that we can reach, although this is dependent on the direction of the access point we are connecting to. Most often, we attach aerials to chimneys, gable ends and TV aerials.
