A Mid-Ulster social enterprise has transformed its telecoms network to support its 37 businesses and 226 employees.

The Workspace Group said its investment, which was partially funded by the UK Government's Gigabit Voucher Scheme, would give its companies access to new superfast broadband.

The group worked with telecoms provider Rainbow on the project.

The Workspace Group is headquartered in Draperstown, but operates from 14 locations across Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Great Britain, providing business support services and almost 100,000 sq ft of office and industrial space to a variety of new and growing small and medium-sized businesses.

Adele McIvor, marketing and business development manager for the Workspace Group, said: "To support our goals, this strategic investment in our communications network delivers the capacity and resources required for greater expansion opportunities and productivity and encourages a much greater focus on innovation.

"With decades of business strength and experience on our side, we're confident for the future. We are delighted with the transformation achieved."
