Brightstar illuminates London with new connectivity solution from Neos Networks

  • Neos Networks

London, UK, 17 May 2016 Neos Networks, the UK’s leading provider of network infrastructure and data centre services, and part of the SSE Group – today announced it has been selected by Internet service provider, Brightstar, to deliver 100Mbps Ethernet connectivity in and around London, where the majority of its customers are located, as well as further afield.

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. Neos Networks’ recent Project Edge network expansion meant that it was in an ideal position to meet Brightstar’s needs. With a network reach of 12,000+km and 265 points of presence serving 250,000 metropolitan business postcodes, Neos Networks’ 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 Neos Networks 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 Neos Networks team has forged with Brightstar. The Internet service provider benefitted from the personal approach taken by Neos Networks and the open and honest relationship meant that the project was issue-free from procurement to delivery.

“We needed a network that was dependable and a team who were experienced in delivering networks without hiccups,” said Mark Barber, Managing Director at Brightstar. “Neos Networks is renowned for its reliable connectivity and with a skillful team offering one of the simplest on-boarding procedures in the market; it was a clear choice for us. With Neos Networks, we got what we ordered, we got it on time and the team was able to be flexible as and when we required additional connectivity services.”

“We’re thrilled that Project Edge has made our dependable network a viable choice for Brightstar,” said Colin Sempill, Managing Director, Neos Networks. “Its sheer reach, combined with the integration capabilities and LIVEQUOTE pricing tool, means that Brightstar can be responsive and agile to its customers’ network demands, which is particularly important to those companies working in seasonal industries with unpredictable demand.  We’re looking forward to a long relationship as Brightstar’s network provider of choice.”
