All my Staff and residents would like to say “thank you” to the team at Bramatt computing.  The team at Bramatt helped us achieve our aim of ‘providing internet access to all our residents’.  Following initial discussions, Bramatt helped us choose the correct equipment that was required and completely turned our building into a fully operational Wi-Fi zone.
