Alpha selects Rainbow for major telecoms investment

Alpha Media Group selects Rainbow Communications to strengthen its tech network as part of multi-year investment

Northern Ireland’s largest locally-owned weekly news group, Alpha Media, has committed a further £150,000 as part of a targeted, multi-year major investment in its telecommunications network.

The company, which has almost 60,000 weekly readers across 13 key paid-for regional titles, said the additional investment would provide greater efficiencies, reliability and security to support its ambitious Northern Ireland-wide editorial, advertising and management teams.

Alpha Media Group publishes The Ulster Gazette (Armagh), Tyrone Courier (Dungannon), Mid Ulster Courier (Cookstown), Tyrone Constitution (Omagh), Strabane Weekly News, Ballymena Guardian, Antrim Guardian, Coleraine Chronicle, Ballymoney Chronicle, Ballycastle Chronicle, Northern Constitution (Limavady), County Down Outlook (Rathfriland) and The Newry Democrat.

Based in Moygashel near Dungannon in County Tyrone, the company has been working with chosen supplier and partner, Northern Ireland telecommunications specialist Rainbow Communications since 2010 to ensure it continually has the most innovative systems firmly in place to underpin its growth.

The latest investment is part of a multi-year investment programme incorporating 17 locations designed to increase the capacity of its technological framework, improve connectivity between sites, reduce costs and facilitate operations online – and in the “cloud”.
