Somerset Chamber welcomes Truespeed as a Business Partner

Leading edge ultrafast, full fibre broadband provider Truespeed has joined Somerset Chamber as a Business Partner.

Winner of the Best Rural ISP 2019 award from the Internet Service Provider Association, Truespeed is building a brand new network that removes frustration such as buffering, drops and slow speeds at peak times to give the South West a future-proofed broadband solution.

Unlike other companies which provide fibre to a cabinet and then copper cables to people’s homes and businesses, Truespeed only use full fibre, direct to the premises connections which means they can guarantee 200Mb/s speeds.

“We are delighted to announce Truespeed as Business Partners of Somerset Chamber of Commerce, “ said Alistair Tudor, Operations Manager at the Chamber, “We’ve had a long relationship with the Truespeed team, partnering with them on the broadband survey last year which further highlighted the need for ultrafast broadband for many companies across the region.

“Digital connectivity for business is critical for the continued success of organisations across Somerset and we’re looking forward to working closely with Truespeed as Business Partners to address this need.”

Jez Allman, Director of Sales for Truespeed, said “Having previously worked with the Somerset Chamber of Commerce to understand how businesses can be better supported, it was a natural progression to collaborate again and start making real change in the region.

“It’s great that we’re starting a new chapter with the chamber, that aims to ultimately equip Somerset businesses with the infrastructure and connectivity they need to compete and create long term stability and success.”

Businesses can choose from a range of broadband packages tailored to their needs. More information is available online at
