Super Connected Cities at Advantage IT Wales

Spectrum Internet held the free Advantage IT Wales event on December 6th to unveil the latest technology trends SMEs can take advantage of in 2014 and into the future.

Advantage IT Wales, sponsored by Nick Ramsay AM, was aimed at IT Managers, Managing Directors and Finance Directors wanting to find out more about Super Connected Cities, trial the latest devices from Microsoft and get the best advice on their IT strategy for 2014.

Cardiff Council’s Jim Smart, the lead representative for Super Connected Cardiff, provided an overview of the Super Connected Cities scheme for Cardiff and Newport and the business benefits associated with ultrafast broadband. As the full scheme is now live in Cardiff and Newport the event was a great opportunity for delegates to speak with the Cardiff Council team following their presentation.

Speakers at the event included Microsoft’s Stuart Ball, Giles Phelps (MD of Spectrum Internet) and Kevin Herbert (Operations Director at Net Support UK).

The event highlighted the need for businesses to access ultrafast broadband and how this can increase productivity and bring greater flexibility to operations; which is essential for all SMEs.

With the New Year approaching Spectrum Internet advises Cardiff and Newport SMEs to get in touch regarding the broadband voucher scheme as this can transform their business in 2014 and well into the future.
