Baltic Broadband specialise in providing connectivity services for the Film and TV Industry 

Having been involved in the sector’s growth since early on, we’ve been fortunate enough to work on a wide range of productions of various sizes and complexities that have featured all around the North West of the UK.

From small on-street shoots to 40,000 sq ft build spaces, we have provided digital connectivity to them all.

As well as ad-hoc connectivity, we ‘ve also pre-connected build spaces, studios and post production facilities around the region that are available for use the same day with speeds up to 40Gbps available.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I appreciate all the effort you have put into making this work. It’s great to work with people who see a commitment beyond the invoice.

Richard EverissCBBC, So Awkward Series 7

Baltic provided us with a high speed 1 Gbps leased-line for a week long filming project in Liverpool City Centre. The service, complete with high density WiFi was set up across multiple levels in the same building; in a large open-plan office and on our set, allowing both our crew and visitors to connect trouble free while having use of printers and rush upload ports throughout. We were very happy with the great friendly service provided by Baltic and would strongly recommend them in the future.

Eleanor StonehouseSugar Free TV

Thanks for the great help that your team provided us in securing a 2Gbps internet connection to our film set for the 16 week shoot. Being able to upload raw footage directly from the set while providing our various departments with very fast WiFi, backed with 24/7 tech support really transformed how we worked. When we film again in the region, we'll certainly be using Baltic for our connectivity requirements.

Richard BainesPrivate Filming Client

Thanks Baltic, really appreciate you setting this up so that we could upload our Dailies that went to post-production after each shoot while filming in Liverpool.

Elliot BickTwickenham Film Studios

Thanks for setting up the on-street WiFi for our production in Liverpool, without it, we'd have to struggle with poor mobile reception and low data rates so having a fast WiFi for the crew was invaluable!

Andrew PapadopulosKudos and Sky Atlantic - Tin Star

Baltic has installed and is providing high-speed broadband services to us at our edit suites in Liverpool, with a guaranteed minimum speed of 150 mbps (up and down), together with blanket wifi coverage. Their customer service is excellent and they understand the specific needs of the creative industries in general and the film and video industry in particular. Their staff executed the installation safely and with consideration during the Covid-19 crisis, closely following a pre-agreed and tight schedule. Their rates are competitive and the service is reliable and indeed very fast. I have no hesitation to recommend Baltic Broadband to anyone in the Film, TV and video industry who needs a fast, reliable, high-capacity broadband connection and wifi coverage – be it temporary or permanent.
