Show House magazine talks all things broadband with UK Connect

UK Connects PJ Farr met with Rupert Bates from Showhouse magazine to discuss why UK Connect is becoming the industries favourite broadband supplier.

Show House magazine, first published in 1995, is the leading trade title for UK housebuilders and new homes suppliers. It is read by all the key decision-makers and influencers in the industry. They put an emphasis on profiling leading figures within the industry and what makes them and their companies tick, as well as covering all the latest housebuilding news and views.

In this 14 page special, Show House magazine goes on to tell us why broadband is fundamental from day one, how it benefits both homebuyer and builder and how connectivity is allowing for new technology solutions to drive better business outcomes.

The future of digital in the construction industry

As the importance of fast, reliable connectivity is now being realised, the emphasis is no longer on just a connection, but what that communication allows us to do. From sending large scale drawings, to gaining valuable sales and marketing insights – broadband is now seen as the enabler for so much more.

PJ Farr, Managing Director for UK Connect said, “Our business looks right across digital construction and infrastructure in the home; its future, the challenge and the opportunities and, as an industry housebuilding has a lot of stakeholders to bring together.”
