The installation of an on-site fibre network, which provides cost effective, unmetered, high speed internet connectivity and IP telephony as well as access to other hosted solutions is now complete and available to tenants. The internet services have been designed specifically to fit the requirements of the types of organisations based at Chesterford where fast and efficient exchange of information is critical.
