The Red Devils Parachute Regiment is taking its ability to communicate to new heights with superfast, fibre optic broadband from Virgin Media Business. The new network is helping the daring feats undertaken by the Red Devil’s team to be shown to new audiences around the world.

The network is delivering super-fast internet services to the Red Devils’ team. It’s making it far quicker and easier for staff to manage its content management system and upload news stories and blogs to its website and social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Based in Wiltshire, the Red Devil’s old internet connection wasn’t providing nearly enough bandwidth to support the communications team and frequently knocked them offline. With so much information to be shared with the media and general public, trying to upload new content using such a sluggish and unreliable connection was frustrating.

Virgin Media Business worked closely with The Red Devils’ team to understand exactly what they needed. As a result they were online and up to speed very quickly. Now that they have a secure and reliable internet connection in place, the team can concentrate on deploying its daredevil parachuters to shows and events up and down the country and promoting their activities online.

Lance Corporal Danny Kelly, The Red Devils explained: “Virgin Media Business has given us internet connectivity that’s capable of pushing our corporate messaging through the roof. We’re an ambitious brand, keen to promote our work with our followers around the world. Our old internet connection wasn’t allowing us to do that, but with Virgin Media Business on board, the sky’s the limit for our communications team just as much as it is for our parachuters.”

Tony Grace, managing director, Virgin Media Business said: “The Red Devils are on a mission to promote the great work of the British Army and Parachute Regiment through their stunning displays in the sky. That’s why we’re delighted to be powering its publicity machine and helping them upload content to the right places quickly and easily. As a result, the team are able to share their positive message with a growing audience and focus on what they do best: pulling off thrilling stunts 10,000ft above the ground.”
