A little about who we are and what we do

About Our Company

Founded in 2008, Data Network Consultants Limited came into being in response to a niche market for Internet connectivity aboard inland waterways vessels. From the days of wireless mesh systems, 3G routers and custom-built marine antennae, we have diversified our range of solutions and services to include regional Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) telecommunications infrastructure and enterprise class IT support.

Our networks now handle hundreds of devices simultaneously connected to our microwave and fibre core. Maintaining infrastructure of this size requires considerably specialised knowledge and these are the skills we can deploy within your business – maintaining your core network, server and desktop computers as well as telephones, printers, till systems and much more.

DANECO operate as an Internet Service Provider (ISP) within Northumberland and are acknowledged by Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) and the iNorthumberland initiatives aimed at delivering superfast broadband connectivity for rural Britain.

Managing Director

Paul Graduated from Lancaster University’s School of Computing and Communications with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Communication and Computer Systems. Paul lived aboard a narrowboat during his time at Lancaster and soon found that obtaining a reliable Internet connection afloat was a challenge to be met. During his studies, Paul developed various wireless mesh access systems for use on British canals and rivers but after securing private investment, this ultimately led to the roll-out of wireless telecommunications infrastructure in his home County of Northumberland.
