Doncaster Council

Connectus was on hand to meet the needs of local, regional and national government during the first weeks of the UK’s Covid-19 lockdown.

Doncaster Council’s Councillor Nick Allen (above left), who represents the town’s Bessacarr ward, said:

“Engineering Manager Dave Skinner and the Connectus team helped me enormously when I needed to establish wifi access at home during the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Cllr Allen joined the Connectus family of clients at the start of 2020, working from his office on the Doncaster Sheffield Airport business park. When government advice made it clear everyone should work from home wherever possible, Connectus were there to provide a 4G wifi router, which allowed him to keep up with his vitally important government work.

Cllr Allen – who also works as Senior Caseworker for Nick Fletcher, the Member of Parliament for Don Valley (above right) – explained:

“I didn’t expect to be working from home, but due to Covid-19 I had no option. Dave helped source and supply all the necessary equipment so I was up and running really quickly. 

“The installation was easy and it’s been running smoothly ever since. As I work for a busy Member of Parliament and I am also a local councillor on Doncaster Council, Dave’s assistance helped me out massively. It was such a good experience and I would recommend Connectus to anyone who needs to get onto the internet quickly.”

Connectus CEO Roy Shelton said:

“Telecommunications engineers are considered to be key workers and I remain immensely proud of our team and all other key workers around the UK who are all going beyond the call of duty now and also post Covid-19.

“At Connectus, we pride ourselves on remaining agile and working to the needs of our customers in order to mitigate cost, complexity and risk. During these uncertain times, we will react quickly and proactively to our client needs and ensure we continue to deliver a world-class service.”
