Mascott Construction has become the 100th customer to benefit from super-connected broadband fitted by Atlas Communications.
Atlas is a registered supplier under the Belfast City Council super-connected cities scheme, which gives businesses with inadequate broadband speed vouchers worth up to £3,000 to install high speed broadband connections.
Mascott’s IT Manager Sam Gaw said the company, based at Heron Road in Belfast, had been suffering from the area’s very slow broadband speed.
“Trying to get 8, 9 or 10 people connected at the same time led to bottlenecks, while downloading and uploading tenders took forever,” he said.
“There is no facility to lay fibre optic cable in the estate, but Atlas came to the rescue with wireless broadband. As the work was covered by the Superconnected voucher, we only had to pay for the VAT, which was refundable.”
“We aim to deliver broadband at a price that fits most businesses and do it a way that is high impact, rapidly deployable and with as little disruption as possible,” said Manus Savage, Atlas Programme Manager.
“As well as offering high speed downloads similar to fibre to the cabinet services, our service provides higher upload speeds making it ideal for media and content intensive businesses.
“For those businesses with previously limited broadband capacity this service opens up much greater access to cloud based and remote access services providing new options for how an organisation chooses to operate.”
