Gloucester is the UK’s second geekiest city (which is a good thing btw!)

A study carried out last year by had our very own city as the second geekiest city in the UK. Now some of you might take offence to such an accolade but it actually reflects wthat a great IT sector there is for such a small city. Taking the runners up spot after Cambridge is no disgrace either, considering the research facilities and the world famous university they have at their disposal. That’s why we chose IT as one of the reasons to Believe in Gloucester.

So, how was this stat calculated? The study looked at IT career opportunities, IT education and training and the uptake of IT consumer goods per capita. Whilst yesterday’s budget announced that Belfast, Birmingham, Bradford, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and London will bid for their share of a £100m “super-connected cities” subsidy, Gloucester also has reason to celebrate it’s IT and communications sector. With companies such as Fasthosts, Symantec and Star leading the way in cloud computing and other visions for the future and financial services such as Ecclesiastical Insurance , Gloucester folk shouldn’t feel ashamed to embrace their inner geek.
