Affordable high speed fibre for businesses in Inverness and the surrounding area is finally available in the city and has been widely welcomed by the business community and local politicians.

fibre2business is being provided by local technology company, Dynamic Edge, who have had a presence in Inverness for almost three-years.

Dynamic Edge have worked tirelessly for more than a year to bring the exciting project to fruition, after working with countless businesses who have limited or no access to high speed Internet in the Highlands.

Dynamic Edge can now offer business grade high speed fibre connectivity across the city and beyond, helping to firmly establish the Highland capital as a major international business hub with the very latest fibre Internet technology available as the city continues to grow and diversify.

Dynamic Edge believe this significant investment in Inverness is a vote of confidence in the area, which will increase economic growth in the area and stimulate growth in the Highlands.

Dynamic Edge offer simple all-in high speed fibre2business packages for outstanding value which are fully managed.

They include: fibre connection; dedicated, uncontended, synchronise internet access; no data caps; business level Service Level Agreement (SLA); Cisco hardware included on a three-year contract.

Stuart Winterburn, COO Dynamic Edge, said it was fantastic news for Inverness.

He added: “This really is groundbreaking for Inverness and the surrounding area. A lot of businesses in the Highland capital just do not have access to good Internet connectivity.

“By speaking to our customers and business leaders in the area we discovered how frustrating this situation was and it clearly puts these companies at a disadvantage. “We felt it was important to do our best to try and bring an affordable high speed fibre access Internet service to Inverness.

“The city is really on the up at the moment and is becoming a major tourist and business destination. However in order to compete on a global stage it is essential that Inverness is part of the superfast fibre connected world.

“We believe this service will be transformational for the business community and will help to shape the future connectivity of the Highlands.”

Drew Hendry, MP for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey welcomed the news.

He added: “This is very good news for businesses in Inverness and I look forward to seeing the benefits delivering for people and businesses in and around the City.

“Improved digital connectivity is vital to making Inverness a more attractive place to do business. Indeed, a competitive and future proofed digital infrastructure will allow us to increase productivity, and growth in our economy - leading to the creation of more and better paid jobs.

“I am pleased that as a result of Dynamic Edge bringing this project forward, businesses will now have more affordable digital connectivity – taking us all a step closer to achieving our digital connectivity ambitions for the region.”

Stewart Nicol, Chief Executive of Inverness Chamber of Commerce said it was a milestone for Inverness.

He added: “This is an important step forward for the city of Inverness. High-speed digital communications are a defining factor in our long-term success. This will provide the opportunity to create new growth and future potential.  

“The high speed affordable fibre internet connection for business will be a huge boost to local businesses and members. Sophisticated communications are essential to any successful community.

It is imperative that Inverness is at the forefront of digital communications so we are competing on a level global playing-field."
