We chose Athernet because they have shown excellent bespoke web development skills.

Athernet, an expanding integrated agency, has been selected to redevelop Speedy’s website ( in order to bring it up to date with the latest web design techniques.

The existing Speedy website does not cater for the growing number of mobile users who use the site on smartphones and tablets. To provide these users with a greater user experience on every device, the new site will be made in line with responsive design best practices.

Daniel Atherton, MD of Athernet, said: "We faced strong competition from a number of well established UK agencies who were also bidding for the Speedy tender, so we are extremely pleased to be recognised by such a high-profile client."

Liam Derbyshire, Digital Marketing Manager at Speedy said: "We chose Athernet because they have shown excellent bespoke web development skills in smaller Speedy projects and really excelled during the tender process."

Daniel added: "Our ethos is to leverage our skills in technical development as well as creative design to create websites that work seamlessly, as well as looking great. We realised there was a gap in the market for an integrated approach to design and development, and our new business wins certainly seem to back up our thinking."
