And now it's the home of the latest mobile broadband development, with news that Motorola are trialling what has been described as 'the future of mobile internet'.
 
The Swindon-based tech giants have installed the first UK test-bed for 4G, also known as Long Term Evolution (LTE), which can deliver downloads speeds of upto 100Mbps - the fastest in the world for a wireless device.
 
Motorola is now inviting network operators such as T-Mobile and O2 to see the technology in action.
 
The company, who have been based in Swindon since 1988, plan to release its first commercially available LTE products later this year.
