Yorkshire businesses at forefront of Internet boom

Article date: Mon, 07 Aug 2006 15:55 GMT

Yorkshire businesses build on the webManchester based ISP, UKFast has noticed a trend in the sales of dedicated Internet servers suggesting that Yorkshire businesses are taking the Internet more seriously than the rest of the UK. Dedicated Internet solutions allow businesses to provide a faster, more reliable and capable service across the net and it seems Yorkshire businesses are taking full advantage. Lawrence Jones, managing director of UKFast is pleased to see the region advancing its online prospects. “The South East and the North West have historically been the key areas for the Net's serious businesses. But this year 62% of new hosting clients based in Yorkshire have demanded dedicated solutions. This is higher than the figures in the South East and North West.” UKFast, twice winner of the ISPA's best hosting award, has built its brand on enhancing the online reputations of UK businesses through top range dedicated servers. Customers on their network include, Sky Interactive and Dollond & Aitchison, but they also have smaller clients making it big on the web, including leading edge graphics supplier Corniche Fine Arts of Bridlington, East Yorkshire. Corniche Fine Arts' innovative approach brought a Queens Award in 2005. The company had by then begun developing a fully integrated on-line MIS solution, lacking within its marketplace at the time. “Our ‘OpenHouse' online process has to provide secure high speed communications to internal users and a global client base,” says MD Shaun Newsome. “We partnered with UKFast to meet the needs of the system in terms of security, reliability and speed. With this in place, we can confidently extend our global reach from the comfort of our Yorkshire base. For more information, or to arrange an interview, contact Jonathan Bowers 0870 421 1585
