A NEW business launched in Swindon to help firms in poorly-connected areas of the county link up, get online and overcome technical issues.

Entrepreneur James Bull incorporated the company formerly known as Prestige Communications on Hobley Drive with business partner Robert Cheque after working there for 25 years.

Mr Bull said: "With some areas of Wiltshire not connected for fibre-broadband, we look at the best ways to ensure businesses have the tools they need to thrive.

"Whether that’s using 4 or 5G networks or superfast or fibre-optic broadband, we ensure that customers get the right products and services to keep business running smoothly.

"The introduction of 5G will be an important development for businesses in the area."

Mr Bull also runs managed service provider IT Support 365 which will work in partnership with the new business that is now known as Prestige Communications Solutions Ltd.

Together, the businesses will offer broadband, radio and wired communications services across Wiltshire.

He added: "With PCSL’s industry-leading expertise in data communication technology built up over the last 40 years, it was the perfect fit with IT Support 365.

"I think it’s really exciting and there’s an opportunity for cross-pollination for the businesses. Adding these products to the group is very good.

"It gives lots of opportunities to look after customers with a greater wealth and experience of products. The company has a long and distinguished history in Wiltshire and Swindon.

"We look forward to growing and developing the business across the next 25 years.”

Prestige Communications Swindon Limited offers businesses knowledge and experience that it has gained while providing communications and security solutions for the past 40 years.

The company specialises in superfast and fibre broadband services, data cabling, security doors and access systems, two-way radios, paging and PA systems, and CCTV.

In the next few years, the group aims to help more businesses in Wiltshire work smarter, faster and better. The focus is on providing the best solution, tailored to each customer.
