North East WiFi supplier, KBR, has won an exciting contract for the second consecutive year with the North East Music Festival, Mouth of the Tyne Festival, which will feature Will Young, James Bay and LuLu.
KBR will be supplying high speed WiFi to the festival for the second year in a row which will ensure performers at the festival, along with their entourage, will have easy access to online communication with their fans on social media as has now become the norm for performers.
The company will provide a high speed wireless broadband service to the famous Tynemouth Priory and Castle.
Based in Birtley, the business has been a provider of outdoor WiFi solutions for 17 years and will also provide WiFi to the Womanâs Tour and The Tour of Britain cycle races for the third year in a row this year.
Technical Director at KBR, Gareth Tomlin, said that the task of bringing high speed broadband to a grade one listed building such as Tynemouth Castle will be a difficult task and as such the company say they will take special measures to avoid damaging the building and drilling into the structure.
Mr Tomlin said that KBR always relish a chance to showcase their years of experience and expertise in the industry, adding that they are delighted to have been chosen once more to supply WiFi to the Mouth of the Tyne Festival for the second year in a row.
Technology Officer at North Tyneside Council, Bill Miller, commented that by having WiFi at their annual festivals, this allows them to provide corporate services to the team in a swift fashion, while giving performers internet and social media access.
He added that having worked with KBR for 12 years, he can rely on the firm to provide them with a reliable WiFi service of the highest standard.
