Aspire offers 12 months free ultrafast connectivity to support North East businesses through Covid-19 crisis
A North East tech firm is offering support to businesses across the region as they work to bounce back from the Covid-19 crisis.
Aspire Technology Solutions’ managing director Chris Fraser said the company has been “lucky” in terms of the impact it has experienced during the pandemic, but wants to help those across the region who have had a more difficult time.
The Gateshead-based IT company has developed its own full fibre network throughout the region with a multi-million-pound investment in local infrastructure, and has launched a new initiative to help North East businesses benefit from its high speeds and reliability.
With the pandemic prompting businesses of all sizes and sectors to work from home where possible, recent months have highlighted just how vital the right internet connection can be to day to day operations.
How is Aspire helping businesses?
Until 30th September, North East businesses can take advantage of **up to 12 months free internet connectivity** through Ultrafast Dedicated Connectivity (UDC). Aspire’s UDC leased lines provide connectivity of up to 100 gigabits per second (Gb/s), the fastest speeds and most reliable service available in the country.
In Aspire’s bid to help local businesses increase efficiency and improve productivity during the current difficult climate, they can receive 12 months free on a new five-year UDC contract, or six months free on a new three-year UDC contract.
During the free period of connectivity, which will see businesses make savings of more than 16.5%, there will be no costs to pay for standard installation or rental.
Reliable connectivity is ’crucial’ for businesses moving forward
Businesses who may not have had adequate connectivity quickly felt the impact of this once the UK was in lockdown, and many have since been taking steps to shift investment to digital solutions where possible.
“Being connected to a reliable network is crucial for businesses to remain productive during this time. We’ve seen a number of customers who didn’t have the right connectivity and in the first week of lockdown, they struggled with core performance” said Chris.
Chris insists there’s still an opportunity for businesses to be “pro-active” as they adapt their businesses for the future, and explained: “The customers who have UDC have reaped the benefits of strong connectivity. We know how difficult the current climate is for businesses across the North East as they adapt to the new normal and we want to offer support where we can to help them to remain competitive”.
Can all businesses benefit from UDC solutions?
Aspire’s UDC offering can provide the right all-important connectivity for small start-ups to large businesses, and the company has provided services to businesses across the spectrum.
Chris explained: “UDC contracts can start out as a small and more cost-effective solution and as your business scales it can scale with you.”
Aspire’s full fibre 100 gigabit-capable network will allow businesses to take a huge step forward in their communication and cloud capabilities, ensuring they are fully future-proofed. The reduced prices and payment break mean local businesses can take advantage of world-class connectivity, at a time when it is most needed.
