Burrington Estates has teamed up with South West broadband network specialist Jurassic Fibre to provide what is thought to be the first 10gbps connectivity for a business park in the region.
Jurassic Fibre is busy installing the infrastructure for the ultrafast fibre broadband ensuring the service will be ready for businesses moving into Winslade Manor in early 2021.
This 10gbps service means that businesses will benefit from hugely improved efficiency for day-to-day tasks and processes.
Mark Edworthy, Group Managing Director at Burrington Estates, says “Internet is the new oxygen! We are determined to provide the fastest internet speeds and resilience available anywhere in the region as well as coverage across the whole estate to encourage use of the grounds for outdoor meetings and personal working.
“The homes we build will also benefit from this amazing connectivity helping those who want to efficiently work from home.”
The ultrafast service will support business tenants in saving money and improving efficiency and productivity not just through faster speeds, but enhanced security, better customer support and remote connectivity, a real plus for flexible working options.
Jurassic Fibre, which was set up to address the issue of the South West being overlooked in the supply of high-quality broadband, currently provides a service to around 20,000 premises in East Devon.
CEO and Founder of Jurassic Fibre, Michael Maltby says “We are extremely excited to work with this unique development in the South West. As a leading local internet provider, we understand how, increasingly, every aspect of our lives depends on world-class connectivity that only fibre-to-the-premises can provide, and which is now increasingly enjoyed by our customers across East Devon.”
Looking ahead to longer-term plans to build residential properties at Winslade Park, the installation of this ultrafast broadband service means that it will be available to future homeowners.
