Successful telecoms technology event 8th & 9th November 2016

Many of our BMR members source their mobile contracts through the BMR/Anglia Farmers deal. One of the many benefits of this is the back up service provided by the Anglia Farmers (AF) Telecoms team. This week 2 members of the AF team visited the Borders to provide members with one-to-one advice on

  • choice and setting up of mobile handsets, contracts available, tablets including ipads and boosting broadband

 

  • CAT handsets and yellowbox technology were discussed amongst others

17 members took advantage of this event, coming from as far away as Biggar, Dunbar, Coldingham and Earlston to Dryburgh to meet with the AF team. If you are keen to take part in the next event, possibly at the end of May/early June, please contact Ann in the office on 01896 758091.
