£1.2m investment could bring ‘ultrafast’ tech connection to Tees Valley businesses

Regional connectivity provider Aspire Technology Solutions has announced a £1.2m investment in its UK core network in the Tees Valley.

The new infrastructure will enable businesses access leased line speeds of up to 100 gigabit per second (Gb/s).

This comes after the company has just hit a £20m milestone.

Ben Upton, head of solutions at Aspire, said: “UDC is going to help put Aspire on the map as a national managed service provider. We rolled out the product in Tyneside earlier in the year and the take up has been excellent.

“Extending the network into the Tees Valley is the next logical step for Aspire. Being from the area myself I am really proud of the investment we have made here.”

Service levels are measured using the global Net Promoter Score (NPS) framework, which determines the likelihood of a customer recommending a business based on service.

Scores range from -100 to +100, with anything over +70 being deemed ‘world-class’. Aspire currently has an NPS score of +83.

Justin Godfrey, sales manager at Aspire, and another Teesside native, added: “The beauty of UDC is the scalability. Lines are not fixed, which means the speeds can be dialled up and down depending on usage.

“Often times when business users are experiencing latency and slow speeds with their cloud based IT services, it is due to poor connectivity.

“As for Teesside, there is a real positive vibe around the area at the moment, with a lot of inward investment and innovation. This service can only help with the economic growth in the area.”
