Spectrum Internet bring ultrafast to virtual offices in Cardiff
The Super Connected cities scheme was originally intended to boost access speeds in a number of UK cities to ultrafast and beyond speeds, but to meet EU State Aid rules was scaled back to a voucher scheme that individual businesses could apply for. The news from Spectrum Internet that they have installed a Gigabit Internet connection to The Maltings in Cardiff is one of the success stories from the voucher scheme.
"We’ve had a recent £3m refurbishment which means The Maltings now offers high tech luxury Self-Managed and Fully Serviced offices that will now benefit from super-fast broadband. The new Gigabit service that Spectrum Internet has installed has future-proofed the building which is resulting in huge efficiencies for our tenants. This service not only completes our offering of providing ultra-modern services in a 19th century setting but is also generating increased interest from prospective tenants."Gareth Oram, Office Manager of the The Maltings
The connection was delivered using a pool of vouchers from businesses in the building to provide a Gigabit capable connection and thus deliver benefits to the 14 businesses that rents space in the building now and others in the future.
Spectrum Internet have a specific website for the Cardiff voucher scheme for those businesses in the city looking for more information about the firm, and the City Council website is at digitalcardiff.net. The council website includes details of the Wi-Fi plans for the city too.
