6G Internet has teamed up with two of the leagues oldest football clubs.
The business gave Premier League side Burnley its backing ahead of a planned roll-out of its internet services in Burnley. The company also helped Blackburn Rovers kick off the new football season after becoming an official partner of the club.
Director of 6G Internet, Phil Walker, said both the link-up with Burnley FC and its expansion into the town showed the business’s commitment to become part of the community.
He said: “6G Internet is an established East Lancashire business that has always been proud of its roots so we are keen to become part of the fabric of the communities we serve.
“We were keen to show our support to the club when the opportunity presented itself and we are now looking forward to seeing the 6G Internet brand featured around Turf Moor and within match-day programmes as our relationship goes from strength to strength.
“We are now eagerly awaiting the extension of our network within the town.”
Business club membership includes a host of benefits, including the 6G Internet branding featuring on mid-tier LED displays during matches and a 24-hour LED screen outside Turf Moor.
Club local brand partnership executive Paul Walsh said: “We are always keen to forge alliances with Burnley businesses and so we are delighted to announce that 6G Internet has joined the Burnley FC Business Club.
“We would like to thank them for their support so far and we look forward to developing our work together in the future.”
Rather than using the copper cable network like its rivals, 6G Internet installs and uses its own network, enabling it to provide high-quality broadband without the wait or inconvenience of digging up roads to lay fibre optic cables.
6G Internet, which initially launched in Blackburn, has ambitious plans to roll out its technology even further afield and is set to open a new retail outlet in the town centre.
Phil Walker, director of 6G Internet, said ““When the opportunity with Blackburn Rovers arose, we were eager to show our support for the town’s favourite football club and we look forward to seeing this partnership flourish as the team progresses on the pitch this season.”
Marc Mitchell, Rovers’ Commercial Sales & Partnership Manager, added: “It is important for the club to develop strong links with the community, so we are delighted to welcome 6G Internet into our commercial portfolio as an official club partner.”
