Keycom take centre stage at national digital housing conference

Broadband specialists Keycom are to take centre stage at a major housing conference on digital inclusion.

Neil Woolerton, Keycom’s development director, will deliver a keynote speech to delegates at the prestigious National Digital Housing Conference 2014.

The event, to be held at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre on October 14, is being held to promote powerful and efficient online communications for housing tenants,

“Around 11 million people in the UK lack basic digital skills and it is known that more than 4 million of these people live in social housing,” explained Neil.

“It is vital that residents are given the tools to access the internet in a fast and reliable manner. Many vital Government services are moving online and this will both save millions of pounds for the country and give housing tenants high quality access to the best services at the most competitive rates.”

Keycom provides bespoke broadband solutions to sectors including housing, higher education, military accommodation and business.

In a recent project with Weaver Vale Housing Association, Northwich, Keycom provided controlled public broadband access to the housing association’s residents.

The project is helping to promote independent living and giving access to online services for older residents.

Keycom’s services are backed up by 24/7 support from a Stafford based call centre.

“It is a privilege to be able to speak at the National Digital Conference.  The audience will include key IT and development managers from the housing sector who are charged with bringing up-to-the-minute digital solutions for tenants,” commented Neil.
