In December, a review of the operation and structure of the Cybermoor group of companies was carried out by members of the boards of each of the companies: with the objective to identify ways to streamline operation and reduce costs across all of the companies.
Cybermoor Ltd, Cybermoor Services Ltd and Cybermoor Networks Ltd, were originally founded in response to different opportunities and projects, but they all have various annual costs which need to be paid regardless of the amount they trade. Cybermoor Services has contracts in place until October 2018 and Cybermoor Networks is owning and managing the fibre assets up until June 2018. Cybermoor Ltd is now inactive – its traditional role was to collect broadband subscriptions but this activity passed to Quickline last year.
As a consequence, it has been concluded to focus future activities on Cybermoor Services Ltd and close Cybermoor Ltd before the end of the current financial year (March 2017). This closure will have no impact on broadband and the team will continue to support Quickline in the development of broadband services on Alston Moor. This decision will reduce costs and allow the team to focus on delivering digital inclusion projects around Cumbria such as Active Advice and PhysioDom. Our support for social enterprises is also continuing through the Cumbria Social Enterprise Partnership – offering business advice and networking events.
