With more people investing in high-quality internet connectivity than ever before, internet provider, Orbital Net is growing from strength to strength.
It is one of the largest independently-owned providers in the south-east, offering wireless connectivity, fibre services and 4G to residents and businesses across the region. A new marketing and sales manager appointed has helped drive sales with the help of five additional staff members.
Up until this point, Orbital Net retained the majority of business through word of mouth, but now it is committed to reaching further out. Recently securing a contract with Park Holidays to provide connectivity to 31 parks, the business has also invested £1m into Kent Telephone Exchanges. A central system which combines processes of all departments is one of the company’s most recent projects. Staff will be able to access any data at any time and get a live view of current prospects, customers and issues reported.
This year will see the launch of Orbital’s sim-only mobile service, additional offices and a programme allowing IT companies across the UK to re-sell its services. Orbital Net’s own bespoke WiMAX wireless networking system gives the company a unique advantage over others in Kent. The company’s service facilitates customers who have no access to any other providers.
Managing director, Danielle Salvatori-Roderick, said: “The dedication of our team is invaluable, their skills and expertise organically increase and we offer fresh training regularly to ensure we are always at the top of our game.”
It is hosting a charity ball this summer in aid of PHA UK and remains a low-carbon supplier.
