Cains Brewery Village – home to popular venues such as Baltic Market, Peaky Blinders Bar and Ghetto Golf – has announced it will soon be offering a super-fast broadband connection.
With Hyperoptic’s 1Gb Fibre-to-the-Premises infrastructure, tenants in the unique grade II-listed building can access speeds upto 1,000Mbps broadband – over 27 times faster than the average connection in in the UK.
Users of this Hyperoptics broadband have been advised they will be able to download HD movies in less than one minute and 4K content in minutes, and Cains is the first new business development in the city to benefit.
With the likes of Salford’s Media City attracting many businesses up north, Cains Brewery Village Managing Director Sid Dusanj hopes this unique offering will attract bigger businesses to the city.
Mr Dusanj said: “We are thrilled with how popular Cains Brewery Village has become, and by offering these incredible broadband speeds we are hoping to attract more businesses to the area.
“The Baltic Triangle is a creative digital hub and full of exciting independent businesses, so Cains would be ideal for a larger tech firm to set up a Northern base.”
The Village, which has become an independent business and entrepreneurial hotspot, was launched in 2017 and has gone from strength-to-strength ever since.
However, despite the high number of existing tenants, mostly bars, venues and retail, there is still 150,000 square feet available to rent in Cains Brewery Village – and with the addition of this hyperfast broadband, prospective digital and tech tenants will have more reasons to move there.
This new broadband service will also hugely benefit tenants in Brewery Works – a co-working and private office space within Cains Brewery Village.
Tomi Jones, Owner of Brewery Works, said: “The kind of businesses that will be working within Brewery Works rely on connectivity to go about their daily work.
“To be able to benefit from this incredibly fast broadband will make everyone’s jobs a lot easier, and our Brewery Works tenants are already incredibly excited to try out the speeds.”
Speaking about the impact high levels of connectivity will have on Liverpool’s perception as an international business destination, Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram said: “Liverpool has always been an international destination for tourism, sport and culture – and now we are harnessing that inventive streak to become an international centre for creative and digital business.
“One of my key mayoral pledges is to make Liverpool the most digitally connected city in the UK, so this is great news for the sector and a massive boost to the Baltic area and the city’s burgeoning digital cluster. It’s another big step forward in the vision for Cains Brewery Village.
“Being able to offer the fastest broadband speeds in the country enables Liverpool to complete on the international stage with the great cities of the world.”
Steve Holford, Chief Customer Officer at Hyperoptic, said: “You cannot understate the role of digital infrastructure in enabling business success. Businesses become empowered when they try full-fibre – they have fast and reliable connectivity that supports them.
“The feedback we get from our business customers is phenomenal – all their data-driven processes and interactions become instantaneous, giving them an immediate and significant productivity boost, many of which find measurable in net profits.”
This is a great addition to the 10gb independent connection available by not-for-profit group IX Liverpool.
