LCR Connect and FACTCO bringing Full Fibre to you!

“With 1Gbps broadband, all my connectivity troubles seem so far away!”

Liverpool has regenerated and evolved faster than we could have possibly imagined. In the past ten years, we’ve seen The Baltic Triangle quickly become a mosh pit of music, business and culture. Lark Lane has established itself as a quirky street full of identity and potential. Even the way we move around the city has moved faster than what we could have imagined. From electric scooters to tapping our cards for an instant ticket to ride from Lime Street to destinations across the country. Liverpool has become one of the fastest-growing cities in the world. Thanks to LCR Connect and FACTCO … it’s only going to get faster!

LCR Connect – Digital infrastructure for the Liverpool City Region

We are delighted to announce we have become an LCR Connect partner! This will enable us to provide our customers with futureproof, ultrafast, full fibre connectivity across the city region.

LCR Connect is a Joint Venture between wholesale full fibre provider ITS Technology Group, the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, and delivery partner NGE. The JV is delivering a 212km digital infrastructure across the six local authorities of the Liverpool City Region.

Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram has championed a world-class digital network for Liverpool City Region. As part of his manifesto, he cites its role in both a successful modern economy and in connecting communities.

The potential for business

If you’re a business owner, the potential across the city region has never been greater! When complete, LCR Connect will put city region businesses and institutions in a prime position to lead the way in a host of growing sectors. Are you helping to create a sustainable future by studying forestry? Deploying Artificial Intelligence? Whatever it may be, this new network will help businesses like yours to flourish.

Experts estimate that the economic boost courtesy of the new network infrastructure could be worth up to £1 billion. This boost will attract new businesses and help improve productivity. Not to mention boosting the growing digital and creative sectors and potentially creating thousands of local job and training opportunities.

With the help of all our partners, we will also be able to deliver better digital connectivity to local authorities, education, health & social care sectors and innovating public services. With this digital infrastructure installed across the Liverpool City Region, children will no longer be restricted to poor internet speeds but instead be empowered to learn, laugh and socialise. Innovations in educational apps such as the game-centric quiz apps like Kahoot!, or the ability to share and receive homework on Google Classroom will allow for the education and delivery of the curriculum to be enhanced and enriched. We can cut the gap in technological poverty so that everyone can be curious, learn, and create with access to LCR Connect.
