Connect Derby’s flagship building, Friar Gate Studios, became first building in Derby to be equipped with high speed broadband back in 2012, following a significant investment by Derby City Council.
Now, all of the Connect Derby buildings offer super-fast 1GB (1000mb) broadband and wireless connectivity, which is 99% faster than the rest of the UK.
High Speed Broadband is about more than just computers. It includes the next generation of telecommunications - internet, telephone, television and a whole host of mobile technologies.
As well as faster upload and download speeds super-fast broadband also enables Connect Derby tenants to make cost savings from using Voice over IP (VOIP) technology, as well as supporting various features such as conference calling and video conferencing technology, which can be conducted in high definition.
Super-fast connectivity can help local businesses grow and develop by:
- Improving the customers experience with quicker, communication and faster file-sharing thanks to higher upload and download speeds
- Reducing software and hardware costs by helping businesses to switch to online data storage solutions
- Enhancing the way you communicate and collaborate through online video conference and cloud-based information sharing
- Future-proofing your business with the latest technology to meet your customers’ needs
"Super-fast broadband offers tremendous benefits for businesses, particularly the creative community, who are increasingly exploiting the latest technologies, including the Cloud and Skype during the course of their daily business."
