Baltic Broadband specialise in providing connectivity for Retailers

If you’re a retailer, having reliable high speed connectivity has never been so important. These days most things are connected to the internet: Credit Card Machines, Till Systems, Alarm Systems, Loyalty Card payment systems, Guest WiFi and many more.

In addition to this, the future of retail is providing memorable experiences for shoppers, many of which is now delivered using Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and other real-time applications.

Apart from the obvious need for high speeds and low latency, what retailers need most is reliable and consistent internet connectivity that is backed by 24/7 support by a local company and at a cost effective price.

Baltic Broadband has hundreds of retail customers who trust us to keep them connected around the clock, with some customers taking advantage of our Local Data Centres to host their backend systems off-site therefore releasing back valuable retail floor space.

As an example, Baltic Broadband has the largest fibre network within the Liverpool City Centre, located within Liverpool One: the largest open-air shopping centre in the UK.  Our fully redundant 100Gbps dark fibre network circles the entire £1bn (42 acre) estate, connecting up many of it’s 180+ retail units, offices and leisure and entertainment destinations since 2017.

Example other retail customers include: Queensberry Real Estate, Age UK, Swatch, Footasylum, Frasers Group, JD Sports, Aurelius Group and over 400 independent smaller retailers all of who trust Baltic Broadband to look after their digital connectivity 24/7.
