We are particularly suited to this type of project as our directly employed stable workforce means that skills acquired in one project can be easily transferred to the next.

IT Grant

We are happy to announce that fibre optic installation at our offices. Everything is up and running, however this couldn’t happen without all team members and Networkfish’s effort. This project has been funded via the IT Grant Scheme by the Government. Within this scheme we have been able to replace the quite old main infrastructure running into the office and a new router as well.
