The Hot Coffee Company, Belfast, is a leading provider of quality coffee machines and supplies, with over 18 years’ experience in the industry dealing directly with both Roasters and Manufacturers.
The company has had to withstand lower than average internet speeds due to the progression of broadband services bypassing their area. The company wanted to not only improve this service, but also came to Atlas with a view to advertising their spare office space as a turnkey rental, with super fast broadband as one of the main selling points.
The alternative leap up from broadband to a better connection, and traditionally the only option, is a leased line. However, the expense and lengthy time frame for installation is often a barrier for businesses, particularly SMEs.
This dilemma led to Atlas implementing AirConnect Plus - a service with leased line benefits but delivered in a lower cost manner, via dedicated wireless connections to The Hot Coffee Company’s premises.
Atlas were able to do this in a highly flexible manner that suited The Hot Coffee Company’s requirements through splitting the internet feed between them and the new tenant. This meant that there was a guarantee to both The Hot Coffee Company and potential tenants that the connection would not be diluted through sharing.
This was a more attractive solution, with Tom from The Hot Coffee Company commenting “As a local SME, we know we are not alone in seeking solutions to poor broadband as traditional solutions are not cost effective. The robust & flexible service presented to us by Atlas allowed us to access business quality broadband quickly, for both ourselves and our tenants.”
Jeanette Parry from Atlas who oversaw the project also said “We are delighted that we have been able to meet the needs of The Hot Coffee Company with this truly bespoke service, and to be able to help them support the needs of a growing tech company within the local business community,”
She continued “We are looking forward to continuing to roll out this new wireless offering to businesses across selected areas of Belfast”.
