Why Should you Use Superfast Broadband?

What is the Superfast Broadband Scheme?

To encourage UK businesses to improve their connectivity, the government has set aside £150m to contribute towards the costs of upgrading, enabling them to benefit from technologies that support business growth and give them a competitive advantage.

The BDUK Connection Voucher Scheme provides financial support to small and medium-sized enterprises to get superfast fibre connections or use against Ethernet upgrade costs.

Hundreds of UK businesses, registered charities and social enterprises are already benefitting from affordable superfast broadband. The scheme has been extended until March 2016 – so make sure you take advantage now.

We have our own maintenance division – we have a team of engineers, some of whom provide a constant reference point in the office while the others travel to customers to help with their problems. Who’d have thought that supporting customers in the long-term would be considered novel nowadays?

We have highly-skilled engineers – all of our engineers have been trained in-house. They are technically excellent and are sociable too
