Smarter student broadband

Unleash the power of the UK’s most advanced broadband technology for your students.

Whether they’re on laptops, smartphones or game consoles, today’s students need to be connected 24/7. In simple terms, this means you need to provide them with a broadband service that can cope with high bandwidth demands, both now and in the future.

Reliability, safety and speed

Today’s students need bandwidth, so they can research and work to tight deadlines. They need to stream and upload large amounts of data for work and socially. And they need a broadband service that performs at their level, using the UK’s most advanced ultrafast fibre optic and wireless technologies.

At Optify, we go to great lengths to deliver just that…

We carefully design our networks using the best equipment and with enough spare capacity to minimise faults and peak time congestion.

We install equipment with the very latest Wi-Fi 802.11ac standard to support an enviably large range of devices.

We operate high spec firewalls within the network to protect against denial of service attacks and associated damage.

And as you’d expect, thanks to our dedicated fibre optic cables, we deliver ultrafast speeds day and night.

At Optify we’ve been at the forefront of fast, reliable student internet connections for nearly two decades. We work closely with universities and private accommodation operators to manage their increasingly sophisticated needs.

Every day over 150,000 people around the UK depend on us to get them connected. And we deliver the same level of support and care, whether we’re serving a single bed flat or the 8,000 students at the University of Edinburgh’s 64 properties across the city.

Registration is so easy

From the moment they embark on their student journey, we make it easy for your new arrivals to get online. So, registering their smartphones, tablets and laptops is completely intuitive and only takes a few minutes.

We’ve also made sure that all our pages conform to the latest web accessibility standards for users with disabilities. Plus, we have a range of language options to simplify registration for international students. And if your students do run into problems, our UK-based customer care team is available to provide support around the clock.

In addition, we can supply a registration link for you to send out to new students with their pre-arrival information – so they can create their account before they even move in.
