Welcome to Point Topic Ltd
The leading resource for worldwide broadband, IPTV and VoIP market intelligence.
Point Topic exists to provide the best broadband market intelligence for our customers to make the best decisions possible.
We believe that broadband for all (broadband everywhere) is one of the greatest contributions our generation can make to the world. When businesses, people and governments can access the internet and interact at broadband bandwidths it is to everyone’s benefit. Point Topic is proud of our small but important contribution to the current and future spread of broadband across the globe.
Since 1998 we have gathered, analysed and published information sets that are used across the industry and beyond as the foundation of reporting, planning and strategy. We strive to provide insight, context, sourcing and transparent reporting so our users can follow the data inputs through to the information outputs with confidence.
The best strategies are based on the best information. Point Topic provides the foundation for intelligent decision making worldwide.
Broadband and the services it supports has become part of life in the UK. It is more important than ever to provide your customers, constituents and stakeholders with access to more bandwidth than ever before. Demand is crystallising, suppliers are investing and there’s more opportunity to augment local supply. Local Authorities across the UK successfully use our data already, ThinkPoint provides your window onto that data.
The UK government is firmly behind deployment of more of the latest technologies and while the focus is on ‘full fibre’ there are other operators and technologies that must be part of any planning or business case in your area. Understanding who is where and when is core to maximising bandwidth for your community.
