Attention! Liverpool Businesses….. a new network is coming to you…
LCR Connect is the Liverpool City Region’s new 212km digital highway.
Spanning the six local authorities of Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helen’s and Wirral, this new digital infrastructure is a local network. It’s 50% publicly-owned and built for local businesses.
Experts estimate that with 100% full-fibre coverage across the Liverpool City Region, building on this network, the economic boost could be worth up to £1bn, creating thousands of local job and training opportunities.
Why LCR Connect for my business?
Choice: we’re an open access network, meaning you can access a range of business connectivity – from broadband to leased lines – allowing you to access and enhance IT and cloud services.
Uptime: because we’re a new network, we can switch you over, hassle free, with no downtime.
Speed: while some providers take months to install, we can have your business up and running on the network in days.
Bespoke: if one of the standard offerings doesn’t give you what you need, we can work with LCR Connect, with ‘commercial flexibility’ to work around your needs.
Personal: we’re in your region, so we know your patch (because it’s our patch too). We’re not your typical faceless, big corporation.
Why LCR Connect now?
As the UK looks to a copper switch off, and with more and more services becoming internet and cloud-based, the infrastructure that lies at the heart of business communications is being transformed.
Delivering Gigabit-capable speeds is becoming the norm, with ultrafast connectivity becomes a utility. The digital networks are enabling businesses of all sizes, allowing them to collaborate, support service and underpin the way we work and buy goods in the future.
Fibre Bright leased lines offer the ultimate gigabit connectivity solution. Delivering identical upload and download speeds of up to 10Gb/s, our fibre leased lines supply a dedicated service using the LCR Connect network.
