Rainbow Communications, Northern Ireland’s largest independent supplier of telecom services, recently held a new industry event with Virgin Media Business at Derry/Londonderry’s City Hotel. The breakfast briefing brought together local business leaders, entrepreneurs and organisations from across the North West to learn about the importance of connectivity, the secrets behind a good comms network and how the correct combination of products and services can drive business and growth.

David Beatty, Director of Technical Sales at Rainbow, said;

“Businesses are built around connectivity and it is the provision of world-class customer service with market-leading technological delivery that sets us apart from the competition and it was vital to showcase this to those gathered today.

“The opportunities for local businesses, regardless of size or scope, to embrace technology, is something we wanted to bring home today by highlighting the possibilities around superfast broadband, cloud telephony services and the Wi-Fi options now available thanks to Virgin Media Business”

Virgin Media has recently expanded its network throughout the North West, making this event a must attend for businesses in the North West that have suffered from poor connectivity in the past.

Seamus McCorry, Virgin Media’s Head of Business in Northern Ireland, said;


“Through Project Lightning, Virgin Media is currently expanding its leading ultrafast broadband network offering speeds of up to 350mpbs to thousands more homes and businesses across the UK and Ireland. This is the single biggest private investment in UK digital infrastructure in over a decade and has already passed more than a million homes since 2015.”
