RDS Global brings super-fast broadband boost to Friar Gate businesses

  • RDS Global lays leased-line technology, allowing neighbours access to super-fast broadband for the first time
  • Internet speed for Friar Gate to be at least five times faster
  • Significant boost for the local business community

As part of its continued support for local businesses, RDS Global will bring high speed broadband to the residents of St James Court, Derby. The infrastructure investment will allow the up-and coming generation of enterprise and technology companies to flourish in the Derby-based Friar Gate business community. 

Managing Director Andy Flinn said: “The proposed new lines will offer a minimum of five times faster Internet speed, providing our neighbours with a faster, more robust approach to their data services which is crucial for businesses to remain competitive.”

RDS Global has recently laid specialised cables which allow neighbouring businesses to utilise leased-line technology, and take advantage of super-fast broadband – something that has previously been unavailable within Friar Gate.

Friar Gate is the headquarters for RDS Global, an established leader in the field of IT services and solutions. Covering the full spectrum of services and solutions, including consultancy, hosting services, software and networks, as well as CCTV and telephony, RDS Global prides itself on helping companies understand their IT requirements, delivering the right products and services, and removing the complexities which can act as a barrier to usage.

“RDS Global’s commitment to working with the latest technologies will be a real boost to the local business community. Today, the best companies rely upon fast and effective communications and electronic transactions, and this part of Derby has some real rising stars . We are well on our way to making Friar Gate the Silicon Valley of Derby”, remarked group Managing Director Andy Flinn.

Robert Kay, the group’s technical director, stated that the faster speeds would carry the additional benefit of allowing for internet telephony and IP CCTV. “Due to the fast moving pace of the industry, companies are now benefiting from more reliable, flexible and cost effective methods of telephony, whilst we have seen a sharp rise in IP CCTV, which allows managers to view and review camera footage from the comfort of their PC, tablet or smart phone. The faster internet speeds perfectly compliment this new approach towards complete IT convergence.”
