Internet and phone service company Fort Knox is on the move and is set to expand from a largely business-based clientele into the domestic market.

And it will be offering new high-speed internet packages under the LiveNet Brand.

The company, which also specialises in document management, is moving from the Rosebank Centre on Bermudiana Road to the former Link Bermuda store at the corner of Hamilton’s Burnaby Street and Church Street.

Troy Symonds, chief executive officer, said: “We are excited about the relocation of our offices, which is being done to make our sales and customer support team more accessible to our clients.”

He added that, in addition to traditional telecoms services, LiveNet would offer internet speeds of up to 100 Mbps to residential clients.

Mr Symonds said the firm had provided corporate internet services for many years, with guaranteed service levels.

He explained that the new fibre networks being laid around the island would be used to provide high-speed services to the domestic market.

Mr Symonds added: “We do have some residential customers already — some have come through the corporate side.”

He said the company had provided domestic services in partnership with World on Wireless, but no longer did so.

“Now we’re going directly to the market and it’s the next natural stage of growth for us.

“We also do the telephone service. We’ve been a licensed provider for some time now.

Mr Symonds, however, declined to discuss pricing in advance of the move, which will be available to clients from Monday.

The official grand opening of the new storefront premises is will be May 12.

“Everybody is trying to be competitive on their prices — we will be competitive and we will have some special packages and promotions from May 12,” said Mr Symonds.

“Everybody is trying to get the pricing as aggressive as possible without going out of business.”

Fort Knox, originally founded in 1999, also offers cloud phone systems, business continuity and cloud hosting among other ICT services.
