Connectivity (i.e. Internet or Broadband) is fundamental to modern business, with an increasing range of digital products and services being cloud-based.

Not just another Utility!

Connectivity is now often thought of as just another utility like your gas or electricity. However, when changing your internet or broadband provider, it’s not simply a case of receiving a bill with a different logo and getting the same product. Instead, there are many different types of connectivity; it is therefore important to have the right product installed for your specific needs.

On top of the different product types, there are also different tiers of carrier: some are huge global brands and some are microbusinesses with next to no infrastructure.

Furthermore, connectivity is a postcode lottery! So the right product for your business might simply not be available in your current location.
