This was the resulting company from Webnet Connect, we kept the consumer base I had expanded along with the support centre and improved the company in all ways. The end result began, with a business plan to offer very low cost, full network implementation, for example:

- Supply a network project map, outlining in diagrams | pricing | materials | size | security policies | ventilation | space | time needed | backup | support | etc.
- The paper work | legal documents.
- Implementation of the network
- The on-going support and maintenance pack
Unfortunately due to the materials needed to support this business plan, we tried to find funding form other companies and institutes, for example the FSB | Business link | UK Trade and Investment | Local Councils | but due to the lack of support in Tameside this business did not survive, like its predecessor.
