    ICE deliver new Office launch and services for Coventry

    "After many weeks of searching for a provider for Broadband and VoIP we came across Amvia. ICE had been landed with a ridiculous deadline to find and setup a new office in Coventry for the 1st April. At this point ICE where under the impression that it would be impossible to open new premises at the other side of the country and start a service within a 2 week period, bear in mind we also have the Easter break to factor in.

    Amvia where true to their word. Understood all our requirements, managed and liaised with third-party provided, whiles provided ICE with all the Hardware and training needed. Which included, a newly fully functioning VoIP system, Telephones and live broadband (with a 4G fail-over SIM) all in time for the 3rd of April.

    Amvia provided ICE with a cost-effective solution with Excellent customer services and support. We found that Amvia where always there to help with any problems with minimal lost of service."
