Superfast Broadband - a shot in the arm for firm

Posted: 18/05/17 by Glide

A business which operates within the tattoo and piercing industry has received a shot in the arm courtesy of the introduction of business grade broadband which has transformed the way it operates.

MDS Medical, based in Weldon North Industrial Estate, Corby, supplies a wide range of autoclaves and sterilisation equipment to businesses working within dentistry, veterinary, chiropody and tattoo and piercing industries. After years of battling slow internet connections, the Northamptonshire firm has seen its productivity transformed after engaging internet service provider (ISP) WarwickNet to install superfast broadband.

Mandy Grantham, office manager at MDS Medical, said: “Our previous internet service was absolutely diabolical. We were averaging 1MB download speed and we were only able to send two photos at a time by email as the internet service couldn’t cope with anything larger than that.

“As a company conducting a lot of business over email, it was becoming a major issue. Even things such as accessing the Google calendars for our engineers’ appointments could be difficult at times.”

After signing up for an entry-level business broadband service from WarwickNet, the business has flourished on the back of downloads of 40 Mbit/s and 5Mbit/s uploads. Matt Trueman, senior business development manager at WarwickNet, said: “MDS Medical is a company which relies heavily on its online arm and was really struggling with such a slow internet connection.

“We were happy to help them get up to speed with a broadband service which every business should be able to access in this day and age.”

Thanks to Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) and Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) technologies, businesses on Weldon North, as well as nearby Willowbrook East, Corbygate and Earlstrees Industrial Estate can benefit from broadband download speeds of up to 100 Mbit/s, gigabit leased lines with unlimited data transfer allowance and Voice over Internet (VoIP) solutions.
