Following an intensive period of investment and development on infrastructure to further expand York Data Service's gigabit internet offering to all businesses at York Science Park, the first resident has signed up to the gigabit speed connectivity package.  Bam Nuttall Limited took no hesitation in grasping the opportunity to keep one step ahead of the competition whilst also future proofing their business. 

With cutting edge technology and customer service at the heart of the business, York Data Services continually seek new opportunities to deliver a faster, better service primarily targeted to the bioscience, IT & digital and creative industry sectors.  York Data Services worked closely with York Science Park to deliver York’s first fully enabled gigabit business park.  The result being the creation of an attractive, affordable fibre based 1Gb internet package to resident businesses, designed to increase their connection capability.

Offering speeds of up to x10 times faster than any previous package offered by the firm, Mark Fordyce, Managing Director, York Data Services said: "The need for great connectivity is rapidly growing and as the lifeblood for any business, we have invested in upgrading our network and connecting up every business on York Science Park who can now take advantage our next generation gigabit services.  Reliability, price and fast connection speeds are amongst the top three purchasing considerations for business and we are delighted to be offering all three.  In summary, we offer great speed, great price and managed services."  

Backed up by the York Data Services service guarantee, business benefits include 24/7 network monitoring, York based support, no fair usage policies, no estimated speeds along with LAN speeds to their Cloud Services.  Offering a choice of connectivity, fully managed and cloud services to meet the requirements of all types of businesses, York Data Services provide a realistic choice for business.

New resident - BAM Nuttall Limited chose York Science Park as an office location based on the balance of accessibility, parking, supporting infrastructure, modern building fabric and fully staffed reception desk, allowing BAM to have a professional client facing presence in York.  The company’s Rail team is currently engaged in delivering a number of complex, multi-disciplinary engineering projects for their main client - Network Rail.  These include bridge strengthening in Peterborough, a new 40m span rail bridge near Lincoln and the installation of new lifts for step-free access at Finsbury Park.  

Contracts Manager of BAM Nuttall Limited, Johann Boshoff, said: "The facility allows us to securely and reliably access our off-site systems. The 1GB system also allows us to utilise Skype-for-Business and other computer based collaboration systems without any difficulty, reducing travel and accommodation related costs and improving productivity." 

Tracey Smith, Managing Director, York Science Park said: "A recent resident satisfaction survey revealed that 87% of residents surveyed rated their installation as good or excellent, 82% rated their packages as good or excellent and 80% rated fault restoration and customer service as good or excellent.  It's clear from these figures that York Data Services already provide our residents with an excellent level of service and we are delighted that they are continually reviewing and developing their products."
