Here's an exert from an email recieved after we moved the IT systems for one of our London based clients from their old office to their nice shiney new offices. For more reasons why you should call Netcom IT support please see our testimonials page at
Just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work you guys have put in this weekend. I’ve moved offices a few times at previous companies and this is the first time I’ve moved and everyone has managed to get on line straight away!
Simon has been doing a cracking job yesterday & today too so thanks so much!
Client Services Director
In case your interested, heres a few work snaps taken during this install...
A nice shiney new HP Proliant ML350 next to the old box its replacing. We've virtualised a Windows 2008 R2 to allow for hardware independance and sat the installation on a set of 8x fast drives configured at RAID10. 32GB RAM rounds off nicely and ensures our clients new server lives up to expectations.
Quad layer 3 Gb switching with teamed network interfaces from the ML350 providing VLAN and network segragation for multiple office networks.
The server room during the install, we didnt get a photo after the install but suffice to say, its a lot cleaner and fuller now.
Enough UPS battery backup to power a small town for a week, to ensure that the servers will run for ever!!!!
An attempt to be arty, heres, one of the switches, you cant see the AVAYA IP office phone system or the Juniper firewall, but, they are there!! Maybe techies should stick to techincal and not art, that said, were always proud of our data cabinets.

Netcom and Digital Region offers you unbeatable broadband...
Call 01143216146 or email email@example.com to get connected to up to 40Mb broadband from £39pcm!
So what is digital region broadband?
To cut a long story short, its a high speed network encompassing South Yorkshire, Sheffield, Barsley, Hull and Rotherham which bypasses the Virgin and BT network allowing basic connection speeds starting at 40Mb download and 10Mb upload.
Whats this mean to me?
Your business will benefit from the increased 40Mb download speed which means that more of your computers can access the internet without loss of performance. You can use a VoIP or broadband based phone system to save money. The 10Mb upload speed means that your videoconferencing and remote working will run much quicker and your remote backups will upload to your backup servers quicker, whats that? You dont have remote backups? Call us today to find out more. The business package and business bias quality of service routing means that you now have a viable cost effective solution to ramp up your broadband speeds and avoid the costs of leased lines or EFM links.
What if i'm not based in the digital region?
Thats okay. Our other broadband connections offer download speeds up to 24Mb and upload speeds up to 2.5Mb. Not as fast as the digital region but still head and shoulders above the best BT connections out there and for a fraction of the cost.
- Business Broadband on an Uncongested Network
Regardless of the size of connection, if the network is being used by a large volume of people, the speed of access will decrease. Our network is uncongested, which limits degradation of service and ensures that you can access the information you require quickly and efficiently. Residential broadband is congested and therefore unsuitable for business use. Furthermore you will not be able to run voice communications over congested networks in the future.
Netcom have a range of solutions to suit businesses looking for fast and reliable broadband and intersite connectivity to service your business, school or college
