Hebden Bridge-based Not for Profit internet service provider Green ISP is entering it’s 10th year in business, providing environmentally-friendly internet services to the Calder Valley and beyond since 2003; to celebrate this milestone, Green ISP director Paul Palmer wants to draw people’s attention to the imminent and exciting upgrade to the Hebden Bridge telephone exchange:
‘In March, Open Reach (who Install and maintain telephone lines and ADSL Broadband systems) will be installing Fibre Broadband (FTTC) into their Hebden exchange on Hangingroyd Lane. This will give local folk the opportunity to access internet connection speeds of up to 76Meg ( 3 times faster than currently available) and more importantly upload speeds of 19 Meg (8 times faster than currently available.) This will be a great boost for local businesses and households who use and rely on the internet.’
Paul’s business has continued to grow over the last 10 years and this unique collaboration with local group Treesponsibility has seen Green ISP fund the planting of several 1000’s of nativetrees locally. Green ISP has always endeavoured to minimise its impact on the environment by using solar-powered offices, and the link up with Treesponsibility helps offset the carbon used in the running of the business too.
‘By using Green ISP for your internet services you will in a small but real way be helping reduce the flood risk to the valley, as the thousands of trees planted annually by Treesponsibility act as a temporary store and restraint of heavy rains. It’s not a claim any of our competitors are likely to make! We are pleased to be a small part of this essential work.’ says Paul.
GreenISP won a coveted Ethical Consumer Best Buy in 2009 for their services, and Paul is looking forward to many more years of offering a local, reliable and good value service to Hebden Bridge and beyond.
