Testimonials

“It was a very smooth process. They’re very professional and always make sure we have enough information on what they’re doing and how they’re improving. Students are very happy. They finally had the internet they wanted and were paying for, and could get on with their university tasks, speak to family, friends, and everything they wanted.”

Isalie Bloemen, Lettings Manager, YPP Lettings

“Students today have many devices that require internet connections. Taking away WiFi is like taking away oxygen. Each and every milestone, be that complete re-cabling of the building through to floor by floor access point installations, they stuck to. We’ve had no complaints about the WiFi since. The internet service Glide Student provides is absolutely best in class and is a model we’re going to replicate across the rest of our estate.”
