A Midlands telephony company is celebrating after clinching contracts to provide digital communications services for yet another round of rock and pop festivals across the country. Solwise has already secured contracts for Glastonbury, the V Festivals, T in the Park, the Download Festival, T4 on the Beach, the Big Chill and the Latitude Festival.
Now Solwise Telephony of Hinckley will be supplying telephone links for the huge Reading and Leeds music festivals which run over August bank holiday on August 27, 28 and 29.
In addition the company will be supplying digital communications at the Shambala Festival in Northamptonshire from Aug 27 – 30 and also for events at the Scottish National Stadium at Hampden Park in Glasgow. These include a massive Paul McCartney convert on June 20.
Solwise Telephony supplies internet-based telephone systems to businesses across the UK, and for conferences and special events. Other events serviced by Solwise include the Chelsea Flower Show and a Royal Horticultural Society show at Tatton Park near Manchester.
They recently announced that they have been drafted in by Glastonbury Festival organisers for the second year running to provide DSL connections for the telephone system at that annual event, giving musicians, visitors and organisers high quality and reliable telephone communications throughout the festival.
Solwise Telephony managing director Martin Stephenson said the company’s products enabled it to provide a value-for-money internet-based system that was very easy to install with a very high level of call quality. The company’s systems are already used by some 600 clients including the BBC, banks, and recruitment agencies.
“We are able to provide events such as rock and pop festivals with DSL connectivity allowing high levels of call quality. Because we have no minimum contract terms our installations are ideal for exhibition purposes. We are one of the only companies in the UK offering telephone and broadband systems on contracts as short as seven days for special events and conferences,” he said.
Solwise Telephony also supplies discounted telephone lines and calls through BT Wholesale, and specialist business broadband.
Earlier this year Solwise Telephony was acquired by Scottish telecommunications group Pinnacle in a half million pound deal.
