UK’s oldest construction contractor begins work on 500yr old building.

Wow! What a story! A contractor that’s been using single-SIM 4G solutions for the last couple of years has finally made the jump to Tardis 4G for one of their most recent contract wins.

Durtnell is a Kent-based construction company that dates back to 1591. Site teams are most often working on prestige heritage sites in addition to the normal commercial and residential developments which means their portfolio is always growing with diversity.

Whitehall Museum near Sutton is their most recent project which will see this property aesthetically transformed into a new museum but still keeping it’s original beams and historic feel.

We’re pretty confident in saying site communications were unheard of when the Durtnell brothers first began their journey – the first telephone lines were installed during 1877. Fast forward to 2010’s, Durtnell provides their site teams with dongles or hot-spot devices which suffice if there’s only one worker on-site, but when more trade-staff are active and overall communication requirements are more demanding, the need for superior communication technology is required which is why Tardis 4G was on this site over a month ago.

Our new 4G WiFi solutions provide small, medium and large site teams with super-fast 4G WiFi up-to 100m from source – that’s awesome! Our engineers and research & development team have worked tirelessly to create the best solutions on the market and with our new product already being used across many urban and rural locations, I can confidently say our service is unbeatable for Network Coverage, Response Time and Client Support.

If you’d like to find out why contractors like Durtnell are using Tardis 4G ahead of other 4G providers, please get in touch – We’d be delighted to provide a free trial so you can see the difference between a WiFi Router and a WiFi Router 🙂
