Fibrus has leveraged Project Stratum funding to bring fibre to Daisy Lodge, a purpose-built therapeutic centre located in Newcastle County Down for families across the island of Ireland affected by cancer.

The centre holds a gym and well-being centre with a nail and hair salon, four therapy suites and a sauna. There is also a playroom, games room, teenagers’ space, communal lounges, home cinema, safe and fun outdoor play areas, a restaurant and dining room.

Daisy Lodge’s previous satellite connection was affected by weather and it had previously been quoted a connection charge of £18-20k for a similar broadband service because of its remote location however, because of government funding, the connection to the network was free for the charity.

Corinna Decodts, IT & Facilities Manager, said: “There is no buffering now, so all the kids can be using it for their gaming, watching films and we get less complaints about it.”
