About

Christmas Direct was founded in 1998 by Charlie and Fiona Cameron who sold Christmas trees and decorations wholesale throughout the UK. They set up an ecommerce retail site in 2000 to supply festive decorations UK wide. All their products are of the highest quality and include artificial Christmas trees, long lasting indoor lights & outdoor lights, Christmas decorations. They now supply Christmas and festive or party requirements across the whole world.

Christmas Direct is unique in that it provides indoor and outdoor lighting solutions from 20 mini lights for a domestic tree or children’s bedroom right up to large installations on Oxford Street in London. We use top quality products and guarantee all of our lighting for a year. Wedding and Party lighting is becoming more and more popular and the company has reacted to this by introducing its largest ever range of white cable lights.

Satellite Broadband Case Study: Xmas Direct

The Business Challenge:

Xmas direct needed a high bandwidth data connectivity solution in a semi-remote location in central Scotland. This solution needed to be cost-effective and reliable.

The Solution:

Sat-DSL (Satellite Broadband) was installed for Charlie and his team to benefit from higher bandwidth which has enabled them to be more efficient and productive in their work. Due to being based in a remote location Sat-DSL was the most suitable option to meet these requirements with minimum cost outlay.

Charlie has been extremely pleased with the bandwidth provided by this service and selected a bespoke usage package based on advice and guidance from a member of the SoConnect Team.

The Product:

Sat-DSL (Satellite Broadband) – SOHO Unlimited

The Benefits:

Xmas Direct Ltd opted for a Sat DSL solution as this and enjoyed the benefit of selecting a preferred service from the range of Sat DSL-packages available, to meet their business needs.  This service allows for the significant improvement in bandwidth in a location where Data Connectivity options are limited.  This solution proved to be the most cost effective alternative for Xmas Direct in comparison to the high expense and longer lead-time of a leased-line solution, as well as this no phone line is required for this service.  Sat-DSL also enables use of cloud data storage services using improved upload speeds enabling effective backup and active disaster recovery.

WHAT XMAS DIRECT HAD TO SAY:

Thanks to SoConnect we were able to improve our bandwidth without incurring significant cost. Sat-DSL has been a great investment for us.
