With strong demand for Brightstar’s Internet services from a wide range of businesses – from moderate sized businesses to large enterprises across a number of industries, including hospitality – the company needed a reliable Ethernet network across the entire London metropolitan area. SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ recent Project Edge network expansion meant that it was in an ideal position to meet Brightstar’s needs. With a network reach of 13,700km and 265 points of presence serving 250,000 metropolitan business postcodes, SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ network coverage meant it could instantly service a number of Brightstar’s customers. In areas where its network does not reach, the third phase of Project Edge – Edge Plus, with its innovative LiveQuote tool – offers Brightstar a seamless alternative. The LiveQuote tool was not only used to find the most cost effective, specification-compliant networks for Brightstar, but the SSE Enterprise Telecoms team also trained Brightstar to use the LiveQuote with its own customers.
While the initial agreement was for four circuits, this was swiftly extended to more than 20 in a three year contract; a testament to the great relationship to SSE Enterprise Telecoms team has forged with Brightstar. The Internet service provider benefited from the personal approach taken by SSE Enterprise Telecoms and the open and honest relationship meant that the project was issue-free from procurement to delivery.
