Merula Limited

Established in 1997, Merula has many years’ experience of supplying broadband and connectivity solutions to customers across the entire UK. We have supplied a large number of customers using the DCMS Gigabit Voucher scheme. We are pleased that many of these customers have chosen to stay with us since our very early days which is a tribute both to our technical expertise and our friendly, helpful service and support. Based in Huntingdon, we run our own data-centre and resilient network which allows us to offer a wide range of services from a large portfolio of suppliers ensuring that we can offer connectivity in most areas of the country, even those hard to reach rural ones.

With in-depth knowledge of the area and expertise in complicated multi-tenant installations, whether you need to get your home & your neighbours connected or whether you’re a small business working in a remote location, we can get you on-line in the quickest and most effective manner.

We’d be very happy to discuss how we can help you and your neighbours. Contact support@merula.net.

Openreach

Residents interested in helping their communities to get faster broadband speeds sooner may wish to look into community funding a solution via Openreach’s Community Fibre Partnership (CFP) programme.

Any community interested in helping themselves secure fibre broadband can register with CFP to see what the possible solutions and costs are. (Although the offer does have an element of additional funding available for schools, it is not dependent on there being a school.)

Registering for a Community Fibre Partnership does not represent any commitment from the community at this stage, however, it enables you and us to find out more about potential solutions and costs to deliver fibre broadband to your area.

The Comms Guys

The Comms Guys are a team of talented and client-focused individuals with over 20 years’ experience in the communications industry. We focus on making things simpler by using our expertise and knowledge to your advantage and always being one phone call away. Our ultra-fast connectivity solutions have been used by residential and business communities with way over half of them designed as a fully bespoke solution based on our customers needs. On top of this, our price points tend to always be the lowest compared to all our competitors, which means that not only will you receive exactly what you need, but it will be at the lowest price on the market. Our speeds range from 100MB all the way up to 10GB and we are able to utilise a whole range of networks.
