‘Sixfields to be one of the best connected stadiums in the country’
dbfb Communications, a local provider of managed communication services, are demonstrating their commitment to enabling Northampton enterprises with the tools to grow, with an impending full-fibre upgrade to the St James Industrial Estate and surrounding areas. Organisations such as Cosworth Racing, Northampton Saints, Northampton Town FC & Scott Fowler Solicitors are all soon to be able to access internet speeds of up to 1000mbps. The total cost to extend City Fibre’s gigabit speed service from the nearest duct right to the premises of each organisation is costing in the region of £250,000. The proposal to the St James Community meant that if enough businesses supported the project, the cost would be covered by dbfb Communications and CityFibre. dbfb Communications have then further demonstrated their commitment to supporting local businesses through partnering with Ashmac Construction to deliver this exciting upgrade.
