Exclusive Mirrors celebrates Superfast Broadband connectionPublished Monday, 14th September 2015
One of the UK's largest online mirrors stores will be one of the first companies in South Yorkshire to upgrade to superfast fibre broadband deployed by Superfast South Yorkshire.
Exclusive Mirrors has taken advantage of the newly upgraded Dinnington broadband cabinet to save up to £1,000 each year.
After struggling with poor broadband connections since setting up business in the South Yorkshire area, Exclusive Mirrors is now able to enjoy a faster more reliable service enabling it to become much more productive.
The online company is heavily reliant on the speed of its broadband as it uses VOIP phone systems and various cloud based technologies, so was continuously stretching its old broadband connection.
The installation of the superfast broadband would not have been possible if it weren’t for Superfast South Yorkshire; a partnership of the four South Yorkshire local authorities working in partnership with BT to roll out superfast broadband across South Yorkshire.
Superfast South Yorkshire has successfully installed fibre to the local cabinet in Dinnington, delivering speeds of up to 80Mbps, offering opportunities for local business like Exclusive Mirrors to enjoy a faster more reliable broadband service.
In September last year South Yorkshire joined forces with BT in a £22 million deal to extend the availability of high-speed, fibre broadband to around 98 per cent of homes and businesses in the city region. The project is jointly funded by the Sheffield City Region, the Government’s Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) fund and BT.
Exclusive Mirrors director Stuart Morgan was first to share his enthusiasm at the news of the faster broadband connection as Superfast South Yorkshire shared the news of the upgrade on Twitter.
He said: “I am delighted with the recent news of the upgrade of my local Dinnington cabinet; we had to use three broadband connections which was a significant annual fee. Now with the superfast fibre broadband I am able to use just one broadband connection saving me nearly £1,000 a year.
"I think the initiatives of Superfast South Yorkshire are opening up fantastic opportunities for local businesses in the Yorkshire area and are allowing us to become more competitive in UK markets and specifically helping us to interact more effectively with our customers.”
