Mitsol Fibre Builds
Q: Will my driveway get damaged or collapse during the civil trenching work?
A: No, we use a high tech drilling and moling process to drill under all driveways and roads, we then install a thick HDPE (high-density polyethylene) plastic pipe under your driveway to prevent the soil from subsiding and causing the driveway to collapse.
Q: Is Mitsol the only Fibre To The Home Network Operator in my area?
A: No, we have seen other contractors also working in the same areas as Mitsol. We are uncertain as to who the contractors are building for, sometimes these contractors will build a fibre network at risk, hoping to sell it on to a Fibre Network Operator. Mitsol is currently building a fibre network that will be owned and operated by Mitsol.
Q: What do I do if my water or electrical cable has been damaged by a contractor?
A: Please make contact with us ASAP, even if the damage has not been caused by a Mitsol contractor, we will endeavour to assist with getting the break repaired.
Q: How do I know if the work outside my property is being carried out by Mitsol?
A: You can identify a Mitsol fibre build by the colour of the orange Micro-Duct that we
use, we also clearly identify every manhole that we install with a branded Mitsol tag. We also insist that all our contractor supervisors and foremen wear our Mitsol branded reflective bibs.
Benefits of Fibre
If you are still undecided that Fibre is the service for you, we have complied a short list of the benefits of fibre to demonstrate why it is the broadband internet service of choice for fixed line residential use.
Fibre optic cable
- Adds up to 2% in value to your property.
- Is cheaper than ADSL and LTE wireless services.
- Connection speed is limitless. Speed, speed and more speed. Scientists are yet to exhaust the full potential and carrying capacity of fibre optic cables.
- Is immune to temperature changes, severe weather, lightning and moisture, all of which tend to hamper the reliability of copper cable.
- Is stable, it does not carry electric currents, only light waves so it’s not inhibited by electromagnetic interference (EMI) that can interrupt data transmission.
- Does not present a fire hazard like old or worn copper cables can.
- Unlike copper cables, fibre is not susceptible to theft, as fibre has no resale value.
If you’re a busy family with kids wanting to do lots of things online simultaneously, a fibre broadband connection can make family life much more harmonious.
