Bridge Fibre and Broadband Vantage

Bridge Fibre and Broadband Vantage have committed to working closer together to better serve the Science Park market with Broadband and other services.

Bridge Fibre is the leading provider of ISP services to the Science Park market and Broadband Vantage provides a range of Broadband consulting services to leading property owners across a number of markets.

Bob Cushing will represent Bridge Fibre as Commercial Director:

“Our paths have crossed repeatedly for over 6 years. Bridge has won more of the tenders we have managed for Science Parks than any other provider. They have consistently outperformed the other operators in the market especially in terms of commercial flexibility and customer service. I am delighted to be committing my activities in this market to Bridge”

Bringing the two activities together will enable Bridge to extend its reach and relationships, and build on its existing reputation, as well as reflecting its growth.

Leigh Partin MD of Bridge Fibre said:

“The Science Park market is a specialist sector where you have to deliver a consistent high quality service to both landlord and tenants over an extended period of time. It takes effort and focus to build those trusted relationships and you have to respect the relationship between the landlord and their tenants, as well as addressing their relative needs individually. We are rightly proud of the team we are building and believe our growth and success is a reflection of the commitment we make to our customers”

Andrew Glover, founder and Chief Executive of Bridge said:

“Whilst we have delivered consultancy services to some of our customers, Bob Cushing brings years of experience and the credibility that come from a more strategic orientation and industry leadership. This will enable us to support clients with a complete end-to-end service starting from when the project is at an early planning stage. Getting the strategy and infrastructure right from the start makes a huge difference to occupancy levels and yield for landlords”

Broadband Vantage has developed standards for ICT infrastructure in multi-tenanted property and co-authored the UK Science Park Associations Best Practice Guides. A wide range of technical and commercial strategy papers and case studies are available free of charge from the download area at:
