bigblu steps in to provide satellite internet for Bicester Village

10th August 2017

At the last minute bigblu stepped in to save the day to help Bicester Village’s summer recruitment drive. With less than two miles between our HQ and their’s, it was the satellite broadband equivalent of knocking on the neighbour’s door for a cup of sugar.

Value Retail, who operate Bicester Village and other outlet centres across the world, needed to recruit 400 new staff members. With time running out, they gave bigblu a call at short notice to deliver broadband services for their outlets during their August recruitment drive.

We responded quickly, deploying a satellite terminal linked to powerful Wi-Fi points inside the marquee, which had been erected specifically for the recruitment day.

Thanks to our intervention, we were able to ensure Bicester Village could deliver up to 30 Mbps download and 6 Mbps upload. This enabled all the retail outlets to have access to email and VoIP to communicate with their corporate HQs.

Bicester Village is home to 130 boutiques of British and international fashion and lifestyle brands including Alexander McQueen, Anya Hindmarch, Burberry, Dior, Gucci, Prada, Smythson and Versace.
