As a country, we like to think we are reasonably modern in terms of access to technology and connectivity. But let’s not forget it was only a few months ago that headlines were splashed with revelations that a creative firm in London’s Tech City, (the new, world-leading tech cluster), admitted it was quicker to courier a file to a client on a USB stick than to share it over their internet connection. Still think we all have equal access to great connectivity?
Whilst CORETX customers and partners are familiar with our expertise in the provision, maintenance and support of Cloud and other IT Infrastructure services, many are not aware that we are also an approved supplier within the Governments G-Cloud 7 Framework.
Following the acquisition of C4L in February this year, the Bournemouth based IT firm has confirmed that it is continuing to support AFC Bournemouth and will be working with the club to rename the CORETX Main Stand during the summer break.
Castle Street Investments and its recently acquired subsidiaries of C4L and Selection Services have rebranded to CORETX following shareholder approval yesterday.
CSI is building a new management team, led by the CEO Andy Ross and CFO Julian Phipps which Matt Hawkins and Simon Mewett will now be joining as CTO and COO respectively. We are also very pleased to announce that C4L's Senior Leadership Team will all remain, continuing in their current roles and will be an integral part of our new Management team moving forwards.

As the Head of Marketing for an Internet Service Provider in Britain, I wanted to offer my thoughts on the UK's connectivity specifically for business users, reflecting on the points he made and how to make the connectivity landscape an even playing ground.
Their analysis has uncovered that 1 in every 5 jobs within our Bournemouth & Poole 'tech cluster' are in the Digital sector, now totalling 14,000 jobs and bringing in more than £350m to Bournemouth's economy it has become a very valuable sector to the South Coast indeed.
As an Internet Service Provider it is a professional responsibility of C4L's to ensure that the traffic we are transporting is protected, but there is also a moral responsibility to do all we can to ensure that those using the internet, are safe in doing so too. It was fantastic to see that the Cherries defender made the visit as part of the annual day which sees hundreds of businesses get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
C4L are extremely proud to have been shortlisted as a finalist for the 'Network Project of the Year' award. This shortlisting recognises our work expanding our South Coast fibre network footprint, installing high capacity connectivity from our Bournemouth Data Centre directly to the newly constructed Hilton hotels located in the town centre.
The events are renowned not only for their fantastic food but gathering of local businesses in the area who are looking to make new connections and learn what is on offer in our digital hub.
