Landlords up and down the country tell us that internet connectivity is a key requirement for their commercial tenants.
Yet, they often find themselves waiting months to have a service installed.

Imagine having to wait weeks or even months, to have running water!
It sounds absurd and yet, it’s exactly what happens with internet connectivity. Here at Telcom, our Preconnect service enables ultrafast internet to be part of the utility package from day one, just as you would expect running water gas and electric, tenants now expect their internet service to be ‘on’ on the day they move in..

Recognising this growing appetite for a day one service we’ve launched our new plug and play service ‘Preconnect’.
This service brings tenant-ready fibre infrastructure to your building from the day tenants move in, providing an ultrafast internet connection ready and waiting for them in their workspace. This means that new tenants can move in as soon as their contract is signed. No longer will without move-in dates be impacted by slow internet installation.

Preconnect also allows for tenants to be moved across your property portfolio as their business grows or their needs change and take their internet connection with them at no cost, giving your estate the flexibility to accommodate tenant growth.

Preconnect brings the WeWork service experience to traditional commercial property.

All this, at no cost to the landlord.

The technology behind Telcom Preconnect

The industry has seen Internet connectivity fast becoming one of the top three requirements for commercial tenants when choosing an office or commercial building, alongside location and cost.
Great connectivity is a vital part of a positive tenant experience.

However, most buildings in Britain were built long before the internet even existed.
This means landlords are faced with costly building upgrades and messy, disruptive works to provide services for their tenants. Preconnect takes the headache away, enabling landlords to give their clients a world-class connectivity service, turning a challenge into a key commercial benefit that landlords can offer to prospective tenants.

Telcom’s ‘Preconnect’ service is a plug-and-play infrastructure covering an entire building, so tenants can be online within 24 hours. No more waiting. This then splits into dedicated plug-and-play connections for each individual office, making ultrafast internet available to your tenants’ needs, as soon as they need it.
