Belfast firm Rainbow makes the right connection with BT

By John Mulgrew

Belfast firm Rainbow Communications has secured a new two-year deal for both calls and broadband services with BT.

It is being described as a 'multi-million pound' deal but the firm would not say exactly how much the contract was worth.

The telecoms firm founder and director Eric Carson said the new agreement with BT Wholesale, for the supply of calls and managed broadband, "will ensure that our customers continue to receive the quality service they expect, whilst enabling them to access the latest cloud technologies".

And Frank McManus, BT Ireland's head of wholesale sales and services, said: "We are delighted to be Rainbow's supplier of choice to enable it to offer its customers state of the art solutions today that will change the way they work and behave tomorrow.

"Next generation cloud services, voice-over IP and hosted applications are just a few of the solutions Rainbow can offer its customers through these services, all underpinned by Northern Ireland's extensive fibre broadband network."

Rainbow Communications is based in Belfast and also has offices in Glasgow.

The IT company now employs more than 100 staff, following an expansion of its workforce last year.
