Claymore Lock & Safe

Claymore Lock & Safe operate from retail premises in Haddington Town centre in East Lothian. In addition to sale of security products from the shop, they also offer locksmith services on a call-out basis.

East Lothian Villa

The owner of large modern villa in East Lothian asked Premitel to solve his long-standing problem of poor WiFi connectivity throughout the villa. Good WiFi is essential as he works from home and his children need fast internet for their schoolwork.

Cockburn Halls Business Centre in Ormiston near Edinburgh suffered from poor internet connectivity which made it unattractive to potential clients.
