Complete Support For Your Business

Managed Backup…

Most small businesses are too busy to manage their own backup processes.

As a Managed Service Provider we facilitate comprehensive backup solutions for small businesses, managing this essential activity without impacting on the critical business activities of your company. Giving you piece of mind while you let us do the hard work.

We can backup as little as one file, a  specific application (such as Exchange), an entire Windows server, VMware or Hyper-V images and data, or anything in between.

So no matter how many PCs and servers you have we can provide a managed backup service, simply, efficiently and most important – cost effectively.

Homeplugs are a great way to get your wired and wireless Internet working around your home or business, especially those difficult to reach corners. Homeplugs work by taking data (from a source such as your ADSL Router or a network Hub) and convert this into a signal that is carried around the mains electricity in your premises. So you need a minimum of two Homeplugs to make the technology work. One plug takes data from your Router and when plugged into a wall socket injects the signal into your ring main. You then use another Homeplug to ‘extract’ the data carried along the mains signal. The second (or third or forth etc…) Homeplug can be either wired directly into your Computer (great if you use a desktop PC) or can be a wireless plug that extends the Broadband / network to an area in your premises that cannot be reached by say – your router.

Things you need to know…

The rules…

There are some rules we need to follow to get the best out of our HomePlugs…

1. Generally speaking use HomePlugs from the same manufacturer to ensure they are using the same chipset, speed etc…
2. Older HomePlugs (those with 14Mbps and 85Mbps throughput) are not compatible with the latest standards. If you have any of these then they will need to be removed from the network
3. HomePlugs will not work if your premises has more than one Consumer Unit and you are trying to ‘bridge’ them. In this instance it would be better to use a wireless extender or physical cabling to extend your network
4. Never put a HomePlug into an extension socket board with surge protection and if possible not next to a plug that reduces voltage – such as your Router’s mains plug. This will mess up the signal and you will have at best a poor network connection – or none at all!
5. Always buy plugs that support Quality of Service (QOS) – these prioritise multimedia traffic over other types of traffic on your network connection.
6. There is a maximum number of plugs that can be used on a network, while most systems support up to 8 plugs there are some that will only support 4. For most implementations you would only require a couple of plugs so this may not need to be a consideration.


There are many specifications for Homeplugs come in many sizes and

Each of the HomePlug standards has a headline data speed associated with it. For instance, the HomePlug 200AV standard is associated with 200 megabits per second. It is important to understand that this number does not represent the data throughput between two devices. The data throughput rate between any pair of devices will be significantly less than the headline speed. There are a number of reasons for this discrepancy but you should understand that it is normal to represent networking equipment this way. 200AV devices are ideal for most home users. Things you need to consider when considering HomePlugs are the speed of your internet connection and the speeds required for the internal use of the HomePlugs, such as transferring of data from one computer to another and then make your decision as to which HomePlugs suit your needs the best.

Purchasing your HomePlugs from us takes away all of the above pain as we will offer you free advice to ensure you get the best from this system.


When purchasing Homeplugs it is important to ensure that you get the right plugs.

Thanks for visiting our new website. We’ve tried very hard to bring to you the look and feel of Windows 8, so we hope you like it…

We’ve come a long way since we started our retail business – that was back in 2002. At that time our focus was on building new PCs for our customers.  Wireless technology was pretty much ‘flaky’ and at best unreliable. Broadband was not available so ‘dial-up’ was the only way to get on line.

Then along came Broadband – it was fast, it was amazing, it changed our lives!

Since then the Internet has pretty much ensured that we have a steady flow of customer’s requiring PC sales and support; so whether it’s computer, Broadband, virus or networking issues, we’re always here to help.

Quality Service – It’s All About…

Our Clients…

Our portfolio of customers grows year on year. We look after a wide variety of clients, both business and domestic.

Repeat business and new business from referrals is our lifeblood. We believe the customer comes first, that’s why we never leave a job unfinished or a customer unhappy.


To survive in the IT service and supply industry requires a very broad understanding of Microsoft products. By this we mean the Windows operating systems, Office software and the applications that we work with that run on Windows platforms.

All businesses rely on goodwill to survive. It is important that our customers receive good service.

If we do not meet your needs first time round we will always endeavour to resolve issues… we want to see you again but for the right reasons.

We were first established in 1987 as an IT consultancy, servicing financial, government and utilities sectors in all aspects of the IT project lifecycle. Then our im2 brand name was launched in 2002, we had discovered a gap in the independent PC supply and support market around the Bredon Hill area. Since then our customer base has steadily increased.

Our efficient operation means we can usually beat high street prices for just about any item you want, making us a great choice…

We Specialise In…

I.T. Sales…

We supply new laptops, computers, monitors, televisions and printers.

We also supply network and Broadband equipment including Homeplugs.

For business customers we provide Data Storage Hardware that enables you to run your own on-site Data Backup and Recovery solutions.

In fact we can supply just about any device you can attach to your computer.  And if we haven’t got it in stock we can usually get it within 24 hours


I.T. Service…

Repairs and maintenance: We can perform repair work at your premises or ours, providing repairs to all makes and models of PCs and laptops.

Our ‘bread and butter’ is Virus and Spyware removal – so if you suspect your computer is infected why not let us give it a thorough health check?

Data recovery: This can be a very expensive and time consuming task, with no guarantee of success. (We can always recommend a good backup solution to keep your data safe.)  Our cost effective data recovery methods are a three step process starting with the cheapest recovery techniques and only recommending 3rd party involvement if the first two methods fail

I.T. Support…

We offer many support solutions for your business and home users. Some of these include:

Web design: We design and maintain lots of websites including this one – why not let us design yours?

Office relocation or makeover? Let us help you with your project including network design and installation, network cabling and trunking, Broadband installation and lots more innovative office solutions.

Offsite Data Storage: We provide offsite (cloud-based) backup solutions, which are both cost-effective and essential for piece of mind. We also provide remote monitoring and maintenance packages to keep your business running smoothly
