Lack of superfast business broadband costs Cornwall up to 1170 jobs a year


Avanti Communications slashes superfast satellite broadband prices to less than £1 per day to help remote businesses get connected

10th October 2018. Cornwall, UK. An estimated 6,500[1] Cornish businesses are stuck in the economic slow lane without access to superfast broadband – it’s costing jobs and holding back new start-ups, says Avanti Communications. If the businesses based in the rural, underserved locations across Cornwall had been connected to superfast broadband over the past 12 months, it would have led to between 520 and 1170 new jobs.

To liberate the potential of businesses across the whole of Cornwall and enable the most remote to reap the same rewards as those already connected, Avanti has slashed the price of its ERDF business satellite superfast broadband scheme by an average of 63%.

Businesses can now have access to superfast download speeds of up to 40Mbps and upload speeds of up to 6Mbps from less than £1 per day by using the very latest satellite technology.

Belinda Silous, Chief Sales Officer at Avanti Communications, said: “These Cornish communities have been underserved and are missing out on being able to grow their businesses. They have not had access to the fundamental basics of being able to communicate with their customers and employees. We are enabling Cornish businesses and entrepreneurs to have access to our superfast satellite broadband service to encourage growth in the Cornish market by delivering access no matter where they are located.”

Other business benefits of superfast broadband access include:

  • 75% of businesses save time and/or money by being connected.
  • 46% of businesses use it to help generate sales, win new business contracts and access new markets.
  • 39% use it to develop new goods or services.

Details on the business impact of staying unconnected can be found in Avanti Communication’s new report Better Connected: The Business Impact of poor Broadband in Rural Cornwall[2].

Avanti Communications is a UK based satellite operator that has set a new standard in satellite communications with a fleet of satellites that covers the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Under a scheme funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Avanti provides subsidised superfast connectivity to rural businesses across Cornwall and Isles of Scilly.

The scheme helps eligible rural businesses without access to superfast broadband, get a connection of up to 40Mbps download, the fastest satellite broadband speeds available in Europe.

The aim of the project is to support the growth of Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) by increasing competitiveness and productivity, as well as promoting the use of online and digital marketing tools.

The scheme targets areas where there is no broadband connectivity or, where broadband access has speeds lower than 2Mbps. The project has funding to provide high speed broadband connectivity of up to 40Mbps to up to 1,000 businesses across the region. Avanti is running the project from its satellite operations base at the world famous Goonhilly site on the Cornwall Lizard peninsula.

The funding for the project includes free kit and subsidised installation, as well as the monthly tariffs offered on a subsidised rate. All packages offer the same speeds with the variance on price reflecting the data allowance per month; data packages start at 25GB and go up to 150GB for larger users.

The installation is carried out by a Certified Service Provider, and includes the installation of a satellite dish (installed on the outside of the premises), and a modem (installed inside the premises). Once this is installed, PCs, Wi-Fi routers and other equipment can be connected and businesses can benefit from significantly increased broadband speeds.

To check your eligibility for the scheme, please visit www.connecting-rural-cornwall.co.uk or call Avanti in Goonhilly on 01326 331719.
