Poor Broadband service was highlighted by participants in a recent business survey carried out by Antur Teifi as one of the top 5 key barriers to growth.
Thanks to the Superfast Cymru Project being rolled out by BT and the Welsh Government, this will soon be a thing of the past. 482,000 homes and businesses in Wales now have access to superfast broadband. Telemat IT believe that companies should be thinking about what they will do with this significant increase in broadband speed that will be available to them sooner rather than later.
Having fast and more reliable broadband connection can deliver a host of benefits to your business including saving time and money. Some of the ways superfast broadband can save you time and money are through
- Increase productivity
- Save money
- Increase efficiency
- remove boundaries
- increase retention and loyalty
- increase profits
- enhanced customer service

One thing is certain – competitors will be harnessing the power of fast broadband to analyse market data and to develop new ways of serving customers and selling to them. Businesses here need to be at the head of the game to ensure they gain, rather than lose, ground.
On behalf of Business Wales, Antur Teifi are organising a series of workshops called “Get ahead in business using superfast broadband”. The workshops are designed to explore how businesses can exploit the opportunities that faster broadband and new digital technologies present. It will also be a possibility to access specialist advice on how to take forward your plans.
