Sci-Tech Daresbury has become the first in the Liverpool City Region to launch an ultra-fast type of broadband that will double the capacity for 150 existing businesses in the area.
The 212km full fibre, gigabit-capable network which spans six local authorities in Liverpool, was launched by Liverpool City Region and owned by the LCR Combined Authority.
John Downes, Chief Executive Officer of Langtree and director of Sci-Tech Daresbury said: “The full fibre solution is transformational, immediately doubling our capacity and delivering bandwidth that will grow with our requirements.
"Additionally, the ethos of LCR Connect as a private public venture aligns well with our own and means that local authority services will benefit from the returns it makes.”
Steve Rotheram, Mayor of the LCR, added: “The past few years have shown just how important good quality digital connectivity has become in every aspect of our lives – nowhere more so than in business.
“Any successful, ambitious economy requires the modern, thriving infrastructure that will help it to keep pace in an ever-changing world.
"LCR Connect is a game-changer for our region, offering businesses access to the fastest internet speeds in the country, boosting productivity, and creating thousands of jobs and training opportunities in the process.”
