This service is all about people getting connected the way everyone should be in the online world, and that includes busy folks like me who live out in the sticks in rural Stirlingshire!
I've got to say The Briskona Brigade are people eager to please and get things done and, apart from a few minor niggles trying to obtain 'line of sight', Jamie and his team managed to hook things up in hardly any time at all. Now for some Netflix :)
As a digital photographer living in a rural area I was becoming more and more frustrated at the slow speeds and appalling service on offer from BT. It was almost impossible to do my job properly and the situation was being made worse as my kids' appetite for the internet was increasing on an alarmingly steep curve too.
Here in Gartmore we are about 2km from the exchange in Aberfoyle so even though there were promises of “Superfast” upgrades to the exchange, there were no straight answers to any questions and it was far from clear whether there would be any benefit for us even when Superfast did finally arrive at the exchange. And the upgrade date had been repeatedly bumped into the future anyway.
Briskona Broadband have revolutionised our business by providing very fast download and – crucially – upload speeds that compete with any urban fibre-optic broadband. What took overnight to upload a high quality HD video now takes a few minutes, meaning we can show clients editorial changes almost in real time, which is a game changer for us. A highly recommended service that is now integral to our business – if you don’t have Briskona Broadband and you are in a rural location, you are missing out big time.

As a thriving business with lots of social media activity and a busy e-commerce website to manage, we need reliable high speed broadband. We couldn’t get this from the conventional suppliers because of our rural location and our previous service from BT was very slow and patchy. Now that Briskona Broadband is in place we have no problems with uploading and emailing large files, images and videos due to the fast download and upload speeds. It’s made a real difference to our business - it’s also good value for money and one less thing to have to worry about.

I live in a small hamlet five miles from Duns. I’ve been a customer with Briskona for nearly two years and am very satisfied with their service. It works, it’s reliable, and you get what you pay for.
I have a 10Mbps home package and receive this speed most of the time. This is fine for streaming TV/video without buffering. Of course, there has been the occasional glitch, but never for long.
I cannot imagine going back to the glacial internet still suffered by many. I suggest you call the office to find out if you could be connected. You won’t regret it.

VONAGE works like your regular home or office phone, however instead of using a standard telephone line, VoIP routes your phone calls directly to your telephone using your high speed Internet connection. The only difference you will see is that there is no huge bill at the end of the month.
