Thalamus Networks signs with Sweden's largest co-operative building society

Thalamus Networks signs with Sweden's largest co-operative building society The Broadband Company Thalamus Networks AB (plc) has signed with Gothenburg co-operative building society, "Bfr Masthugget", which is Sweden's largest co-operative building society with 1,231 apartments and 18,000 square metres office premises. The first 300 within the housing co-operative who are offered Thalamus' broadband services have used broadband connections since 1998. With the new broadband provider Thalamus, more tenants can be offered broadband. The already installed network for cable-TV is used to provide these services and Thalamus partner Göteborg Energy - one of Sweden's largest energy supplier - will connect Bfr Masthugget to their fibre network. "When using the already installed network, you are open for future services and technical solutions, at the same time as you get fast, safe and cost- efficient broadband service," states Jan Tidelius, the Thalamus CEO. Through the agreement with Thalamus Networks, the tenants will eventually have access to a variety of new services such as: video-on-demand, games, education services, phone services etc. "The Bfr Masthugget's broadband connection is one way of improving the service for our members and tenants. When we chose among the broadband suppliers, we looked for suppliers who could fill our requirements for high security and service, and Thalamus met these high standards," says Kjell Johansson, Administrative Manager at Bfr Masthugget. It was also crucial that Thalamus could provide services for office premises as well. Facts Thalamus Networks AB (www.thalamus.se) is an independent player in the rapidly growing field of broadband.
