Super, Duper, Superfast Lancashire
Over the last couple of weeks, we have attended a few workshops to assist our online presence - that being our website, blog and social media marketing! We would like to give you an insight into what these guys have helped us achieve and what they could also offer you, as a business.
With training courses that show you how to make the most out of your website, social media and digital marketing and even customer relationship management, there's something for literally everyone!
"Superfast Lancashire is a project to bring fibre broadband to 97% of homes and businesses in the county by the end of 2015. That's roughly 655,000 premises.
Superfast Lancashire is a collaboration between Lancashire County Council and BT that will boost the local economy by creating around 2,500 jobs and protecting more than 1,200 jobs over the next few years. The county’s enterprise zones are a key priority as fibre broadband will help local businesses to become more competitive. The project will also be of significant benefit to those Lancashire premises which currently receive downstream speeds of less than 2Mbps. Ofcom believe that around 15 per cent of premises in Lancashire currently receive less than 2Mbps but that percentage will plummet to virtually zero as the project will ensure they benefit from faster speeds.
Every citizen within Lancashire can benefit from this project as it helps to uplift Lancashire's economy over coming years. We'll work with local communities as well as help small businesses to adopt technoligies and grow.
The project is being funded by the European Regional Development Fund BT, BDUK, and local councils: Lancashire, Blackburn with Darwen and Blackpool."
