Aware Comms represents local businesses at broadband event
February 8, 2015
Aware Communications' MD, Amelia Worrall, was recently asked to represent local businesses at a fibre broadband launch event with Ed Vaizey MP.
The Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries was launching the arrival of Superfast Broadband in the village of Brinscall, not far from Aware HQ.
Extending the network to Brinscall has been a complex engineering task for BT, who had to use a special method called over-blow to install 13 kilometres fibre to the village.
Ed Vaizey, who also toured Brinscall St John’s Primary School, said: "I’m delighted that homes and businesses in Brinscall have today joined the 105,000 other premises in Lancashire that our rollout of superfast broadband has already reached. The transformation of the UK's digital landscape is a key part of the Government's long term economic plan and our investment will help deliver faster and more reliable broadband to 97% of Lancashire by the end of this year."
Amelia said: “As a small business owner working within the creative industry, fibre broadband plays a major part in each and every working day. Having a reliable high speed connection has improved my working processes as it has given me the ability to use file sharing, streaming and video conferencing effectively with clients.
“From a business continuity perspective, fibre has been highly advantageous as I am now able to use the cloud seamlessly for file storage and data backups. Even my accounting software is cloud based.”
