Case Study: The Generator - Exeter

Creating digital first co-working spaces for the creative industries.

The Generator Exeter Logo

Exeter’s The Generator provides coworking spaces to around 300 businesses across multiple locations, all of which require access to high speed, reliable internet.


While The Generator’s existing service was a satisfactory ethernet solution, demands for greater bandwidth and upload speeds from existing tenants were increasing. The business was also looking to attract new customers across a burgeoning market of creative agencies.

The team knew that with the business growing, they would not deliver enough bandwidth and speed to satisfy the growing number of businesses and individuals making use of the Town House.

“As a coworking space we are very reliant on good Internet connections. When we first started, we had something like 17Mbps’. But as we grew, we needed better connectivity, so we moved across to Virgin. While we did not have any particular issues with that, we wanted to provide a much better service to our users.”

“Granting The Generator up and down speeds of 1000mbps has been a complete success and a total gamechanger. The circuit at The Generator’s Town House location went live in May 2019 and since that time has worked perfectly and given members all the speed and performance they need. There have been absolutely no complaints. More importantly, it has worked without faults or any downtime.”
