Orbiss Ltd, Innovators in Integrated Entertainment & Connectivity solutions for Hospitality and proven experts in Telecommunication Systems with over 20 years experience in the Industry, today announced the successful installation of the latest Superfast Fibre-Optic Broadband at their offices; as the pilot of Cornwall’s Superfast programme.
Superfast Cornwall is a ground-breaking programme deploying superfast broadband to Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, making it one of the best connected locations in the world. Funded by the EU, BT and Cornwall Council, and managed by Cornwall Development Company, the £132 million roll-out is the largest ever single European investment in superfast broadband infrastructure.
Julian Cowans, Programme Manager of Superfast Cornwall for Cornwall Development Company said: “We are delighted to have been able to work with Orbiss at the earliest stage of the Superfast Cornwall programme. Orbiss is a great example of an innovative business able to make best use of superfast broadband and we look forward to seeing how it continues to move forward by harnessing the power of this new technology.”
Karen Patterson, director of Orbiss said: “These are exciting times for us. We are making a major expansion into the hotel technology industry. First class internet and electronic communications are a vital part of our business so the arrival of superfast broadband could not have come at a better time.”
Orbiss had the foresight to recognise the business potential of superfast broadband and pioneered the new technology, being the first customer in Cornwall to connect:
“It is a massive leap forward, helping us to operate more efficiently and effectively and making an important contribution to the service we provide for our customers. To take just one example, we are now using superfast broadband to distribute the latest movies to our hotel customers around the UK far faster than ever before.”
