Tatton Tech supports solution to rural infrastructure

By on June 20, 2018

Tatton Tech, as a main sponsor of the Royal Cheshire Show, has installed broadband for the showpiece event solving a frequent problem of inadequate rural infrastructure.

The Tatton Tech team noticed at large events that mobile phone signal often fails making people completely unable to communicate and traders unable to accept card payments, so has given their innovative new Broadband as a 180th birthday present to the show.

Retail and business exhibitors as well as visitors to, will benefit from being able to logon as if they were at home or in the office – all from the middle of a field.

Tatton Tech will be giving demonstrations each hour to rural businesses and residents on Stand D3/1 at the Show, which takes place at the Tabley Showground near Knutsford on 19th and 20th June.  The technology’s streaming and security capabilities include keyless entry, internet telephones, smart access and time management systems and wireless CCTV with number plate recognition.  And for the most demanding customers of all, the incredibly low lag makes the latest online games like Fornite work seamlessly, to many parents’ relief.

Tatton Tech users do not have to share their bandwidth with anyone else so service is free of fluctuation and interruption, unlike normal providers. Importantly upload speeds are the same as download speeds even at peak times which makes it possible for video conferencing and sending large files quickly.

This roll out follows last year’s successful trial of the technology at nearby Tatton Studios for film clients like the BBC and Fox where fast, reliable technology is paramount for high-definition content.

Henry Brooks, Managing Director of Tatton Group, of which Tatton Tech is a part, said: “We are really excited to offer free broadband to the exhibitors and the thousands of visitors to this year’s show and we are sure it will make a real difference to their experience.

“We have erected scaffolding towers for radio antennae to ensure an uninterrupted service across the showground and the Cheshire Show organisers will also be using this service to upload quickly all their show film footage and social media, which is a significant bonus for them.

“Rural business owners cite a persistent litany of problems including poor broadband coverage, but the universal high-speed broadband promised by the Government is not due to arrive before 2020, so we decided to fix the problem ourselves for customers all over the country.

“We have spent many months trialling and investing in the latest radio broadband technology to offer people and businesses especially in hard to reach areas first class digital connectivity with three products, ultrafast for business, superfast for home office and fast for home use. It’s better value for money than leased lines and there’s no digging of holes and no hidden costs – and once installed, as we have seen ourselves, enables all sorts or other technology saving costs and increasing productivity.  You don’t have to work in the city!

“We are delighted to be able to demonstrate what it can do in this 180th anniversary year of the amazing Cheshire Agricultural Society.”

Visit the Tatton Group at the Royal Cheshire Show on Stand D3/1 at any time and catch the demonstrations on the hour every hour.
