our vision

Our vision is clear, we want to change people’s digital experience for the better. We believe in great people, great service and we're forward thinking!

OUR brand values 

We’ve created a driven, no-nonsense, agile culture that moves faster than you imagine. And every one of us stands for honesty, for hard work, and, well… for getting on with the job. So, when it comes to achieving our vision, we’re naturally hardwired to do it.

what we do 

Since 2004, we’ve grown into a sustainable £40,000,000 business - and we’re still growing quick. We’re also 100% privately owned, which means we make our own decisions and control our own future. Just as importantly, we continue to focus on what we do best - designing scalable, cost effective, flexible, integrated network access solutions for national and international business organisations. We don’t just stand out in our own industry - we stand out full stop. 

We supply fully managed Local Area Networks (LAN), fully managed Wide Area Networks (WAN) and private internet solutions, that enable businesses to stay connected, whether its transporting voice or data or accessing cloud applications, we provide secure and reliable connectivity powering your customers to get on with what’s important to them.

We believe that connectivity is fast becoming the 4th utility and that turning on connectivity should be a simple as turning on a light.  We also believe that businesses can do without the worry of managing connectivity on top of everything else.  

our team

We’re led by a senior team with enormous experience and a proven record of success across each of the areas we work in - and beyond. We’re proud of the depth and dynamics of our leadership, and we think we’ve created exactly the right mix of skills to take our business far into the future.

Franki Hale

Frankie is relatively new to the tech industry after spending 20 years in retail and hospitality. However, she's certainly not new to Operations and HR, and her experience makes her the perfect choice for our People and Culture Director.

Franki's ideal holiday would be anywhere, anytime in France, she'd time travel back to the '20s if she could because she loves the outfits, and the first record she bought was Wham's Last Christmas.

Mark is a whiz when it comes transforming organisations to be as efficient as possible. He is relatively new to the IT sector, but is certainly a master of his craft with an impressive background in Business improvement.

Surprisingly Mark says his favourite day of the week is a Monday (He’s alone on that one!) His favourite flavour of starburst is blackcurrant and if he could time travel, he would go back 2 million years to Africa to see the early development of mankind… interesting stuff.

But with a background in managing pubs, hotels & restaurants, and being involved in the setting up of England Athletics, along with 20 years experience in HR, she’s developed the kind of people skills that would fit in anywhere.

Philippa would time travel back to the 50s,if she could, she just loves the fashion from this time. The first record she bought was Jimmy Osmond’s Long haired lover from Liverpool, (Oh to turn the clock back!) and she’d choose a McVities Digestive from the biscuit box every time.
