“The benefits of having a fibre internet connection is immeasurable – we now offer not only great co-working spaces and a talented community to be a part of but office spaces and studios that provide a powerful internet connection”

– Liam Kelly – Full Fibre Network Installation –

“Great professional and knowledgeable service. We have worked with FACTCO to update our broadband capabilities into our business centre. They have delivered more than we expected, their technical support have been great to deal with and the connections have been fast and secure. Can’t ask for more really.”

– Emma – Full Fibre Network Install –

“We use FACTCO’s basic business broadband package. As we’re a small creative business it’s more than we’ll ever need. It’s great to know that we have a great level of support of their team – you’d never get that type of customer service when using the bigger brands. For a creative business like ours, technology isn’t really our forte, they keep things simple and always get issues fixed.”
