“They feel like part of our business”
Family-run chain store Pets Corner have relied on Fastnet for their connectivity for over 10 years – from a few local shops, to the 90 stores they now operate across the UK.
“As a business, we demand the best – and the same applies to our connectivity. With Fastnet, we’ve never been let down.
If we need to call up, we deal with the same person every time. It’s easy and straightforward. We’re not really tech savvy, so it’s important that we can rely on them to fix things – and they’ve always been fantastic. The biggest compliment I can pay is that they feel like part of our business.”

Executive recruitment consultants MRL depend on Fastnet for data centre hosting, firewall security, and high-speed connections to offices in the UK and Germany.
“If we need access to our servers in the Fastnet data centre, I can just ping them an email and they jump on it straight away. And when we switched our Dresden connection over to Fastnet, they sat down with us and made sure it was a smooth switchover.
That’s the best thing about dealing with Fastnet. Simplicity. I can just phone them up and they get it done.”
