The Baltic Tunnel

The Baltic Tunnel enables you to use our internet access service, from any other provider from anywhere in the world.

A lot of the time, other ISP’s impose restrictions like speed and the certain types of services that you use (Cloud Providers, You Tube, Netflix,Game Servers etc) while also censoring and monitoring your traffic.  They can also block incoming traffic, block certain ports or make it hard to run open servers on your connection.

Using the Baltic Tunnel is simple.  Once setup, you simply connect over your existing ISP to Baltic’s network, effectively escaping any restrictions that they placed upon you, so you are only using that ISP to connect to Baltic’s network and we can then provide your Internet Service.

The Baltic Tunnel can be used in a wide variety of ways, but you are effectively using Baltic Broadband as your ISP, over another ISP, allowing you to choose the best setup to suit your requirements

Features

  • Easy to use, a one-click to connect when you want to use is all it takes
  • Connect from anywhere by tunnelling through any ISP to access Baltic’s fast and optimised business network
  • By-pass speed, technical and billing restrictions imposed on you by other providers
  • Unlimited data, times of use and traffic types, just connect and do your work
  • Existing customers can use their office external IP address without using or affecting their existing office connection, ideal for home workers needing “the office IP address at home” to access certain websites or services
  • Use our static IP addresses on any provider in the world

Technical Features

  • Enjoy low latency as your traffic is kept local to the UK and in the Liverpool Community Region and with good peering and connectivity (instead of using VPN’s in far flung countries – many with blacklisted IP addresses)
  • Use the Baltic tunnel to escape your current ISP’s carrier grade NAT and use our free and trusted DNS service to avoid another ISP’s interference
  • No VPN’s or complex setup required, we operate it as a simple non-encrypted L2TP service over UDP
  • Customers can choose to use their existing IPv4/IPv6 address as their outbound address or we can allocate new blocks (/30 to /22) per user or set of users
  • No static IP required, open ports or changes required on your current provider, just click connect!
  • For existing customers with a current internet connection, we can present each tunnel as a Layer 2 connection in your office, for example on a switch port
  • Optional feature to encrypt tunnel (though it add’s overhead)

Use Case

Let’s say you’re at home, in a hotel, abroad or working on 4G mobile. You find that when using your internet connection, certain websites are blocked, ports blocked and/or it’s slow because that ISP wants to limit certain types of your traffic.  It also might be that you cannot get into a number of key websites that you use as your IP address is now different from the one that you regularly use in the office.

Using Baltic Tunnel, you simply press connect and within a second, Baltic are now your Internet provider and you are now by-passing any restrictions you previously had, what’s more, (if you’ve asked us to set it up), you’ll have your usual office IP address, all available from anywhere in the world.
