Keycom has completed the installation of a new wi-fi network for Stafford & Rural Homes’ independent living schemes, removing the need for residents to pay for a fixed line.
Keycom won the tender to deliver a fully-managed service, with the flexibility to introduce wi-fi to additional properties on an ad-hoc basis. The project was been funded with money from the housing provider’s Customer Initiative scheme, which supports ideas put forward by residents to improve their communities.
Steve Adams, strategic director, Keycom, said, “We were delighted to win the contract, and it is particularly satisfying to work with a company so close to home, as we both have head offices on the Staffordshire Technology Park.
“By using radio links, we can link to multiple properties across the Stafford area, and there is also a fixed link between our office and Stafford & Rural Homes’ nearby head office.”
