    Future Proofing the North West's Digital infrastructure

    28 November 2019

    We’re in the midst of a digital revolution. Across the North and in our home city of Manchester, the rise of new technologies and cloud services are radically transforming the way we live and work. The government investment in gigabit capable infrastructure will have a transformative effect on public services across GM and businesses can expect the new infrastructure to have a significant impact. Faster speeds, better reliability and less internet downtime are just some of the benefits of full fibre connectivity. Enabling access to a new generation of digital services will be a catalyst for innovation, promote creativity and drive the economic and social development of Manchester. Telcom’s investment in this next generation infrastructure, will, in a very short space of time have impact from the city centre to all boroughs in Greater Manchester.

    Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme

    25 March 2019

    Here at Telcom we recognise that world-class internet infrastructure is essential to ensure the UK’s future competitiveness, it enables us to remain at the forefront of technology and continue the tradition of invention and innovation we are proud of in the UK. Faster and more reliable connections are transforming the way we live and work, and better connectivity supports businesses to grow. The Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme run by The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), enables small and medium-sized businesses around the UK to benefit from full-fibre connections. With most superfast connections still dependant on copper telephone wires, which are limited in the speeds they can support, a full fibre infrastructure is required to enable gigabit connection.

    Happy Birthday Telcom

    14 February 2019

    Five years ago, it all started out with a dream to transform Britain’s digital infrastructure. Telcom founders Shaun, Thom and Ali shared the belief that the internet is a basic human right and when readily available, is a catalyst for economic growth, technological innovation and empowerment, with life-changing impact. To realise the Telcom mission, the team set out to create a company people could feel proud of working for and a business customers felt went above and beyond that of the traditional service provider. I think our CEO Shaun put it right when he said “it’s been a rollercoaster to say the least but worth every moment” - I second that!

The building, owned by Allied London has become recognised as the place in Manchester for enterprise, creativity and innovative working and is the first addition to the new St John’s project. Having a world class internet infrastructure was essential to attracting and retaining tenants.
