Thousands of delegates has benefited from superfast broadband at Lane End Conference Centre since it implemented a direct fibre optic link exactly a year ago.
The popular international conference centre boasts high speed broadband which is rated Grade A+ and faster than 99% of the UK’s broadband provision.
Lane End Operations Director Mike Gough said: “We have always understood just how important it is for our business to keep up with the latest internet trends.
“We initially considered BT’s infinity package with internet speeds of up to 40MB when it first became available.
“However, a lack of availability in our local area forced us to consider investing in our own dedicated fibre optic link,” he added.
Lane End Conference Centre guarantees superfast internet access - something its clients are unlikely to find at other hotels and UK conference venues and hotels.
Delegates at Lane End can expect:
• Free superfast Wi-Fi and broadband access
• Grade A+ internet access that is among the top one per cent fastest in the UK
• Guaranteed speeds of up to 20MB Wi-Fi and 100MB for hardwired internet
• Dedicated bandwidth for specific conferencing needs
The fibre optic internet connection offers customers a secure platform to deliver video conferencing and webcasting smoothly and effectively.
Lane End used its high speed internet soon after installation to successfully deliver an international video conference to participants in 47 countries.
A recent global survey by Wainhouse Research and Polycom found that the use of video conferencing is growing, especially on mobile devices and personal computers.
Increased productivity was identified by 94 per cent of participants as the most important benefit of video conferencing.
Lane End Sales and Marketing Manager Heni Fourie said: “Video conferencing offers many advantages from cutting travel costs to supporting green policies and increasing productivity.
“This fibre optic link now gives us the opportunity to host UK-based conferences for up to 120 delegates in one of our conference meeting rooms and stream it to any number of locations, both here in the UK and abroad,” he added.
The purpose-built video conferencing facility offers a number of fully equipped conference rooms for hire, along with break-out rooms, dining areas and accommodation.
Lane End recently benefited from a 12-month refurbishment project, enhancing its conference and training rooms, dining facilities and bedrooms.
The popular conference venue is near Heathrow Airport and just one hour from central London. It offers easy access via the M4, M40 and M25 motorways.
Lane End Conference Centre is set in 26 acres of landscaped grounds and is a popular destination for team building events.
The venue offers a wide range of outdoor facilities including experiential learning activities, nine-hole pitch and putt golf course, tennis, beach volleyball, five-a-side football plus open space for bespoke team activities.
There are also a variety of indoor team building solutions on offer, including chocolate-making courses and bake-off challenges.
