IDE Group provide Bournemouth Hilton with future proof Connectivity

With constantly increasing tourist visitors, a premier league football team, a top University and its new status as the UKs fastest growing digital economy, its no wonder that Hilton, one of the worlds largest hotel & resort brands, decided to invest more than £60m on a brand new development in Bournemouth.



Continual improvement

IDE Group completed the complex fibre dig as planned, installing dedicated equipment within their privately owned data centre to terminate the new links and connect them directly to the internet, with the project taking three months to complete in time for the press launch.

Today, the Hilton and Hampton by Hilton have the capability to easily connect 10Gb or more of capacity directly into to building, making it truly future proofed and able to compete with any location on connectivity. IDE Group’s fibre footprint has also been expanded and many other businesses on this new fibre route now have the option for private fibre Leased Lines to increase their business potential in Bournemouth.

Tony Furbank, IDE Group Project Manager: “Together with the support of Bournemouth Borough Council, The Hilton and our contractors, Concept Solutions People, this project has demonstrated IDE Group’s passion and commitment to vastly improve the internet infrastructure within our local community. Ultra-fast connection speeds from an entry of 100Mbps right up to 40Gbps are now available in Bournemouth and a number of local businesses are already benefitting from our investment. Connection to IDE Group’s network is now quick and easy for those businesses on this new fibre route from Bournemouth Town Centre to our Data Centre at Westbourne and then onto the internet.”

“We are delighted to offer guests of the Hilton and Hampton by Hilton the optimum connectivity possible, in order to keep them connected away from home. High quality internet connection is very much in line with the superior quality found throughout the other hotel facilities. IDE Group was the natural partner for us in this regard, offering the quickest connections with the highest quality service.”
