ASK4 and Liberty Living create new leading edge IT network

ASK4 and Liberty Living create new leading edge IT network

June 2012

ASK4, the UK’s leading supplier of fibre-optic broadband to student accommodation, has signed a major new deal with leading nationwide student accommodation provider Liberty Living.

Liberty Living is the exclusive brand of the Brandeaux Student Accommodation Fund, which owns and operates one of the largest private purpose-built student accommodation portfolios in the UK of approximately 16,000 student rooms in 17 university towns and cities.

ASK4 based at Devonshire Green in Sheffield, which has provided student internet services to two-thirds of Liberty Living’s property portfolio for the last 5 years, has signed a new multi-million pound agreement to become the first exclusive provider of IT services for all of Liberty Living’s customer needs.

ASK4 will provide a network to Liberty Living’s 41 residences underpinning its long term commitment to develop technology exclusively for the student accommodation market’s comprehensive needs, including full business services.

“We have worked very successfully with Liberty Living for many years, and are delighted they have chosen us to provide student and office network services throughout their business. Liberty Living and ASK4 have a very similar ethos and are focused on delivering fantastic service to all student customers – which we believe is reflected in our ongoing partnership.” said Jonathan Burrows, ASK4’s Managing Director.

John Kenny, Chief Operating Officer of Liberty Living, commented: “Our network infrastructure requirements have increased in recent years as we continue to focus on the innovative use of IT to add value to our service proposition. We recognise that superb internet provision is a key facet of service expectation for today’s student, our customer, and moreover that our business is increasingly operationally dependent on IT at every level. ASK4 has worked with Liberty Living to design a new infrastructure spanning our complete portfolio, using high bandwidth Ethernet technology that will not only deliver a robust network but also enable Liberty Living to expand operationally and commercially without worrying about the extra demand on the network.”
