What is a telecentre for ?

·         A service at the heart of a community 

·          For provision of equipment: computers, internet access, videoconference facilities…

·         For the sharing of knowledge and information

·         For bringing together different skillsets

·  For networking

I came to Ti Numerik in October 2017 to work on an 8-month “service civique” project, working with Constructys Bretagne. The purpose is to assist my tutor Nicolas (also a teleworker at Ti Numerik since 2014) with a study of eco-construction in Europe.

The working environment at Ti Numerik is ideal, the atmosphere friendly, the offices spacious and the internet connection excellent.  An important advantage for me of the telecentre is meeting other teleworkers from various walks of life.

I regularly work in Central Brittany for periods ranging from a few weeks to a few months.  I haven’t been able to install an internet connection in my pied-à-terre, since the telephone network in the Breton hamlet is over-subscribed….

At first I managed as I could, going to cafés, libraries, mairies, or to neighbours’ houses, to name just a few. I had to put up with all kinds of hours and constraints.

I’m sincerely happy and relieved to have finally discovered Ti Numerik, because even if I have to travel a little bit to get there, the comfort is unequalled compared with what I had before: depending on how much concentration and quiet  the job I’m working on requires , I use either a private office or the communal area. The internet connection is excellent. And the staff are not only welcoming – whilst being respectful of one’s need to concentrate – but also very accommodating: it’s possible for example to have access to the premises outside the opening hours. Finally, Ti Numerik is in the centre of Rostrenen, and so it’s easy to find a place to eat at lunchtime.  I heartily recommend it !

Ti Numerik is very handy !

If ever my internet goes down or I find a gap in my schedule between two appointments in the vicinity of Rostrenen, there's an office with internet where I can sit down and work or make phone calls in peace and quiet.  Tried, tested and approved !

Originally from Normandy, I arrived in Rostrenen and started up my Web Design company four months ago. I had already lived in Brittany for five years and am very happy here. I chose Rostrenen to set up my company because of its centrality and also because TI Numerik is here !

A fast internet connection, a quiet space, a conducive atmosphere – these are indispensable for me to be able to concentrate on my work.

I  found them all at Ti Numerik during my visit to Rostrenen.


I made the most of the welcome at Ti Numerik in Rostrenen on the 10th November 2016 and must thank you for the quality of the facility, its accessibility, and for the friendliness of the people there that day, whether at reception or teleworking. It was a day as pleasant as it was effective and allowed me to fully appreciate the charms of Central Brittany afterwards.

I am an Online English Language Teacher. My main contract is with DaDaABC a Chinese education company. I mainly teach Chinese children English online. I am a Micro-Entrepreneur and I hope to get other online English teaching work too. Ti Numerik has been very useful for me as my Internet connection at my home is not fast enough for online teaching. The Internet speed at Ti Numerik is very fast and stable. I also appreciate having an office space to work in. I would highly recommend using Ti Numerik for Tele-Working.

 

A place to work in peace (with private office). An oasis where I can sit down when I’m not on the road.

A place where I can link up with my colleagues in Rennes and with my professional network.

But also there is a human presence, people with whom I can chat, so that I’m not permanently working alone. A social connection.

I come here too to find a place for meetings with all the necessary hardware (for web conference, videoprojector,  flip chart, coffee, tea, water….) I come also for information.

Sharing. New ideas.

Besides the friendly professional atmosphere and the fast internet connection, I find at Ti Numerik a network of skills and the spirit of progress.

 Alice has lived in Rostrenen for some time and needs a fast connection both to do her work and to stay in touch with her employer in Germany.

She appreciates the pleasant surroundings in the middle of town, a private office with a desk along with her encounters with other teleworkers from different walks of life.
