Ballymena Business Centre set to benefit from FTTP broadband   

Ballymena Business Centre is set to benefit from having access to next generation fibre technology, having successfully secured the roll out of ‘Fibre-to-the-Premises’ (FTTP) broadband to its business units located at its headquarters in Galgorm, thanks to a Government voucher scheme and Openreach’s ‘Community Fibre Partnership’ (CFP) scheme.

 

 Stephen Scullion, Centre Manager of the Ballymena Business Centre said: “Having high-speed broadband available at the Business Centre has not only increased our own productivity, it has also made our premises more attractive to new companies looking for a base to run their business, which requires high speed broadband connectivity.

"We are now able to cast a wider net to potential tenant businesses such as tech companies who require high-speed broadband to operate”.

“We have been very pleased with our CFP project roll out in conjunction with Openreach, who as an ‘open access’ provider, mean our businesses can choose from a variety of Openreach resellers of broadband services.

"This allows them to choose a bandwidth level that suits their business requirements and budget limitations but can be flexed up to gigabit (1000mbps) speeds if required, allowing for flexibility of choice for tenants. Once you get used to the fast speeds, you simply can’t go back."
