Frequently asked questions
How long does it take to switch from my current ISP to Sharp's internet and WAN?
If you already have fibre, we can have you live in less than three working days. If you're still on copper, the fibre upgrade plan typically takes 2 - 6 weeks depending on your business address. We can work with your network administrator in designing a segregated voice and data network that brings you quality and assurance across both technologies.
Is Sharp's internet really faster than other ISPs?
We just give you more. Unlike most ISPs, we don't have a no-frills SME product, all our customers benefit from enterprise network solutions without having to pay enterprise prices. Sharp operates a business-only network that runs under capacity, this means we never have to slow you down to fit amongst our network.
How do I increase speed to our cloud applications?
The internet is a confusing place, and choosing the right network partner will ensure the fastest possible connectivity to the world by taking the path of least resistance. Sharp offers connectivity to public Cloud houses, such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google and Oracle, which means that our customers accessing information inside these Cloud environments can do so through a more direct route rather than just taking a best effort path over the 'internet'.
If you're hosting servers privately with these providers, we can also connect you without touching the internet at all, e.g. as if there was a fibre cable directly between you and the Cloud provider. This ensures maximum speed and security at all times.
