Metronet (UK), the UK’s most advanced Internet Service Provider, has expanded its wireless network once again and is now connecting the City of Bradford.
Bradford is a multicultural epicentre boasting great heritage and offering distinctive experiences to businesses, locals and visitors. Unfortunately, Bradford has suffered from poor connectivity and many areas have never had upgraded superfast services.
Metronet (UK)’s wireless connectivity rollout offers businesses located in the Bradford area a real alternative to traditional fibre connectivity. By combining a unique mixture of both fibre and wireless Internet connectivity Metronet (UK) can deliver bespoke services to their customers 10 times faster than a traditional provider.
Bradford is also part of Superfast West Yorkshire, which is part of the government’s superconnected cities programme. The programme is being delivered locally by Bradford Metropolitan District Council and allows SMEs to apply for grants of up to £3000 for the installation of superfast connectivity, in turn providing companies the opportunity to transform the way they do business.
Superfast West Yorkshire is aiming to increase superfast broadband to 97% of the region by the end of September 2015. Metronet (UK) is one of the leading suppliers on the scheme and has already delivered superfast connectivity to thousands of businesses nationwide.
Councillor David Green, Leader of Bradford Council, said: “We are delighted to have Metronet (UK) in Bradford, which means faster connectivity for local businesses. Another broadband provider also means some healthy competition for other more established providers.”
Elliott Mueller, CEO at Metronet (UK) said, “This new rollout means that we now have even stronger coverage across the North and in Yorkshire. Businesses based in Bradford can benefit from Metronet (UK) being able to deliver faster connectivity, which is flexible and great value for money. Our wireless offering is the alternative to traditional services and will push Bradford forward into the modern digital era.”
