Mobile internet is another broadband option that has become a popular method of connecting to the internet. It relies on having a pay as you go or contract mobile dongle from one of the mobile phone providers and can provide a cost effective alternative to landline broadband. Mobile broadband can be especially useful if you use a laptop on the go as you can access the internet wherever you are as long as you can pick up a mobile phone signal from your provider. Please contact us if you need any assistance on setting it up.

If your computer data was suddenly damaged, hit by a virus, accidentally deleted or stolen, would you lose your valuable data, like digital photos, business details, contacts and emails?

If your computer software or operating system is already damaged to the point that it requires a new installation, we can attempt to recover and backup your data before we reinstall. It is also possible to recover files that you may have deleted accidentally. If this is the case, stop using your computer, as the files may become unrecoverable if they are written over by newer files.
- FIREWALL & INTERNET SECURITY
If your computer is online you need to ensure you make it as secure as possible to prevent unwanted spyware, hacking and access to your personal details and files. As internet usage has grown, so have security threats. You can protect yourself and your computer by ensuring you have all the security patches for windows and installing a firewall, which keeps intruders from sneaking into your computer and accessing your private data.
Firewalls also can alert you when spyware programs attempt to transmit your sensitive information over the internet. In particular, firewalls are crucial if you have the always-on internet connection of DSL or a cable modem (most high speed connections). Protect yourself, your computer and your family today.
