Coventry-based WarwickNet is the first private company to invest in Corbygate business park and offer its services across Northamptonshire as part of the county council’s ambition to have super-fast broadband in its 60 business parks by 2017.
The park at Weldon Road industrial estate has 55 tenants. CorbyGate tenants PA Geotechnical, which uses cloud-based IT to provide engineered solutions for contaminated land, has already benefited from the upgrade in speed.
Stuart Duffy, supply chain manager at the firm, said: “We rely upon fast connection to download large land plans.
“The support we have had from WarwickNet has meant that the speed has dramatically increased which has had a huge impact upon our productivity. We are no longer waiting for the images to download.”
