Telford electrical company, WES was experiencing very slow broadband speeds at around 1.6mb. This made the simplest of tasks like downloading email data extremely difficult for the business.
What was the solution?
The company was successful in applying for £12,000 from the Marches and Gloucestershire Broadband Grant Scheme, funded by the ERDF, to boost its internet connection.
As a result broadband speeds increased from around 1.6mb to 30mb.
What have the faster broadband speeds meant for the business?
The difference that the new superfast broadband has made to the company is tremendous.
Last year WES installed a new computer system which means all servers are now stored online. WES believe there is no doubt these better broadband speeds will help the business to grow. Operations are already smoother and there have been improved communications between the business and its customers and suppliers.
