Trafford Park is one of the latest areas in the North West to benefit from North West based ITS Technology Group’s multi-million pound Faster Britain digital infrastructure rollout, delivering access to Gigabit capable connectivity services.
While Trafford Park is famous for being one of the largest purpose-built industrial areas in Europe, the business broadband and connectivity infrastructure has been limited to Superfast. These services still rely on outdated copper telephone lines which will be withdrawn from service by the close of 2025 as this legacy network reaches end of life.
The Faster Britain network will ensure that more than 1500 businesses can access competitively priced, future-proofed fibre services through ITS’ Internet Service Provider (ISP), Managed Service Provider (MSP) and IT reseller partners who offer a range of cloud and connectivity products to suit organisations of all different shapes, sizes and sectors.
Daren Baythorpe, CEO of ITS said: “As a powerhouse of industry in the North West, and home to some of the most famous brands in the world, Trafford Park is vital to the region’s local economy. The last couple of years has shown that ultrafast connectivity is as important as great transport links, enabling businesses to be more productive, and allowing us to communicate and collaborate more effectively.
“I am really proud, particularly as we are a wholesale full fibre operator headquartered in the North West, that our Faster Britain network will deliver world class connectivity to meet the demands of these businesses beyond the copper switch off.”
Having recently secured a further £100m from Aviva Investors to accelerate its rollout, ITS’ Faster Britain will reach 50% of business and commercial premises in a number of major towns and cities across the North West, and is on track to pass 25% of UK business premises by the end of the year (data source: Ordinance Survey OS Open UPRN data set).
