Guests at Lucksall Caravan and Camping Park in Herefordshire can now benefit from a new superfast broadband connection and park wide WiFi access thanks to a grant from Fastershire.
The grant has allowed Lucksall to purchase a bespoke solution providing access to a 100Mpbs broadband connection and install a new WiFi system covering the 21 acres site.
Steven Williams, from Lucksall Caravan and Camping Park said:
“The connection has provided a vital boost not only for our guests but also the business as a whole.
Increasingly good broadband access and WiFi coverage is an essential requirement for most visitors. The new WiFi system will provide a far better experience for our guests and will certainly help future bookings.
The improved broadband connection has also allowed us to develop the wider business. Lucksall is the headquarters for the Williams Leisure Group and from here we run all the back office support for our other holiday parks. The faster broadband means we can develop the back office support from Lucksall further rather than in one of our other park's locations outside of Herefordshire.”
Councillor David Harlow, Cabinet member for economy and communications at Herefordshire Council said:
“Providing businesses with the support they need to develop is a core objective of Herefordshire Council’s Fastershire Broadband Project, and now more and more businesses like Lucksall have access to the broadband speeds they require to grow.”
Herefordshire Council’s Fastershire Broadband Project is bringing faster broadband to the county and currently over 87% of Herefordshire properties can access a 30mbps or greater service, increasing to 97% under phase 2, and for more of the harder to reach businesses, Fastershire is using bespoke grants to provide access.
