Telford-based ISP Entanet has agreed a three-year, £75,000 sponsorship deal with Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club.
The agreement will see Entanet, one of the UK’s leading ISPs, become the club’s official broadband provider and give fans and sponsors the chance to enjoy discounted rates on a range of internet and broadband services.
Entanet Managing Director, John Tsai, says that the agreement will help Entanet raise its profile even further amongst West Midlands businesses and consumers: “We are very pleased to be associated with the strong and competitive profile that Wolves enjoys. By sponsoring the club we are putting something back into the community and helping to spread the word about our services. They are one of the most popular clubs in the area and we already have many dedicated fans amongst our staff and customers.”
Wolves Director of Marketing, Stuart Cain, added: “We’re delighted that Entanet has decided to give its backing to Wolves. The internet plays an increasingly important role in all our lives and it is one of the most important ways for us to communicate with our fans and commercial sponsors. As well as giving the club valuable support, the agreement with Entanet will give our customers and supporters the opportunity to benefit from the excellent services that Entanet can provide.”
Entanet is one of the UK’s largest ISPs and now has several hundred active account Partners who in turn service many thousands of commercial customers throughout the UK. The business has grown steadily since it was formed in 1996 as part of Entagroup – a broad-based IT and communications group with annual sales in excess of £70 million.
The company has continued to invest in its network infrastructure in order to meet customer needs throughout its 10-year history and it will continue to build on its capabilities as more customers are added, according to John Tsai: “We’ve seen a steady increase in demand for our services ever since we formed the company and the word about Entanet’s reliable and consistent service is spreading far and wide. Recent major infrastructure investments including an additional 622Mbps ‘central pipe’ and 1Gbps network upgrades are just the latest examples of our commitment to putting customers first. We believe that if we look after them well, our reputation will spread and we’ll attract more.”
Entanet boasts a significant infrastructure that provides 99% geographical and 100% population coverage in the UK as well as connectivity into western Europe. This comprises a heavily redundant 10 Gigabit network across six major London data centres and 1-10Gbps connections into key London and European exchanges including LONAP, LINX, AMSIX, NL-ix, DE-CIX and SFINX. It also runs data centres at six further key UK city locations, has two large data floors at its Telford headquarters and access to several hundred POPs UK-wide.
