Electrical Wholesale Ltd Goes Superfast

Electrical Wholesale Ltd, a business in Kirklees, has joined the Superfast Broadband evolution with the help of local telecoms and networks provider, Abzorb.

Abzorb supported Electrical Wholesale Ltd with its application for a government grant to improve broadband connectivity at its premises in Huddersfield.  Grants have now become available to certain businesses within West Yorkshire to cover the costs of connecting to superfast broadband.  This is part of an official, national, Government scheme being delivered locally which sees Kirklees as one of many eligible areas.  Abzorb is an approved supplier of this initiative.

Electrical Wholesale has been enduring an unreliable ADSL connection that was prone to slow speeds and periods of downtime.  The poor internet connectivity affected the team’s efficiency and lowered productivity.  They were also unable to connect additional devices to their connection to showcase their products.  Their aim was to be able to stream videos of their product range and allow potential customer to browse through online catalogues.

With Abzorb’s help, Electrical Wholesale was able to secure the government funding and upgrade to superfast broadband.  The installation costs were all funded through the voucher scheme so the only cost to them was the VAT.

Electrical Wholesale is now able to run multiple devices from their fibre broadband connection, such as tablets and home cinema products.

Managing Director Alistair Ferrie added:

 “The application process was simple and we quickly connected to the service.  The Broadband Connection Vouchers Scheme has really helped us to improve our internet connectivity.  The superfast internet speeds have increased both business efficiency and productivity but the real benefit for us has been the ability to service our customers better.”

Electrical Wholesale supplies a full complement of electrical products to trade and industry, as well as the public. They also specialise in two major areas - Energy Efficient Lighting and Whole Home Audio & Video.
