A Competitive Education
As a world class institution, Queen’s University Belfast required an Internet Service Provider who would give them a competitive edge in their bid to attract the highest calibre undergraduates, postgraduates and overseas students.
Listed in the top 1% of global universities, Queen’s is home to more than 23,000 students, with over 2,200 beds in university operated accommodation. In 2012, Queen’s partnered with ASK4 for the delivery of broadband services in their student accommodation – a service required to match student’s expectations for speed, WiFi provision and dedicated support.
ASK4 worked with Queen’s to deliver considerable improvements to the existing wired network to improve speed, and installed a robust WiFi service fit to withstand high density usage. The complete service was then fully managed by ASK4, with 24/7/365 helpdesk support.
Reflecting on the work completed, Mike Uprichard commented:
Queen’s is now actively exploring options for creating a further 1,500 student beds in the next 3 years and, through continued partnership with ASK4, the provision of an industry leading internet solution.
