Metronet delivers wireless broadband connection 'when others couldn't'

Tuesday, July 5th 2016 by Phil Wilkinson-Jones

Metronet (UK) has been praised after delivering broadband connectivity where others couldn’t.

The internet service provider (ISP) has set up a wireless connection for Cotterill Civils, a drainage company on the outskirts of Sutton Coldfield.

Cotterill Civils, which provides drainage, storage and treatment solutions to the agricultural and construction industries, had previously struggled to find a robust, reliable connection due to its rural location.

The firm has since started using Metronet (UK)’s VoIP (Voice over IP) system, connecting 20 users to the platform.

Amar Baghdadi, head of new business at Metronet (UK) said, “Cotterill Civils share the same ethos as we do, our customers come first and we focus on providing the best service available.

“We go above and beyond to deliver the required solutions to our customers so when Cotterill Civils approached us we knew that we would be able to help one way or another.”

Andy Cotterill, managing director at Cotterill Civils, said: “Metronet (UK) has provided us with a top service, they were able to deliver connectivity to our offices when other providers couldn’t and we are really impressed with this.

“Their customer service has been brilliant from the beginning and their engineers have back out to site when needed. We really can’t fault them.”

Metronet (UK) is one of a number of companies shortlisted for the 2016 ISPA Awards, which take place this Thursday (7 July) in the City of London.

The ISP has been shortlisted for the Best Wireless award and the Security award.

'Doing things right'

Andy Lockwood, the chairman of Metronet (UK), said the company is thrilled to have been shortlisted.

“Our business is built on the delivery of a rock solid product and service and being nominated for these awards just goes to show that we are doing things right,” he said.

“There is a fantastic list of companies shortlisted for the awards and we look forward to joining them at the ceremony.”

As well as celebrating innovation and best practice at its awards, ISPA also recognises those who have done the most to help or hinder the internet industry with its Internet Hero and Villain awards.

Donald Trump and Mossack Fonseca are among the nominees for 2016’s Internet Villain, while MPs Jo Cherry, Keir Starmer and Nicola Blackwood are all on the shortlist for Internet Hero.
