Architectural Practice – East Ogwell

As an architectural practice based in rural Devon with projects in both London and Devon. The Internet is essential to our business.We exchange large data files (3D renderings, models and photographs) with both clients and contractors and the speed of existing Internet provision is a limit on what we can effectively do.

Increased internet speed would allow us to do more, more effectively and quicker, to offer better competition to urban based practices.

The availability of high speed Internet is therefore the single most important factor in our current business model for future growth and expansion and the benefits of its availability cannot be overstated to any media based business considering relocation or expansion within rural areas. Without it business will decline!
