We are the leading business communications provider in the UK.
We connect more than 1m business customers and public sector organisations with our extensive portfolio of communications and IT solutions. We also provide network products and services to communications providers operating in the UK and Republic of Ireland.
Business customers and public sector organisations
Our customers range from big household names, government departments and public service organisations right through to small businesses and new start-ups. We cover both the communications and IT services markets. Overall we’re focused on four main product markets: Fixed Voice; Mobility; Fibre and connectivity; Networked IT services provided over the biggest UK network in both fixed and mobile communications. We also provide network IT services to corporate and public sector organisations in the Republic of Ireland.
We expect these markets to increasingly converge over the next few years as technology and customer needs change. And, as they do, we see an opportunity to grow our share of the mobility and IT services markets.
The solutions we provide continue to play a significant role in the ongoing digitisation of public services. We are focused on strengthening our regional presence so we can drive growth in our converged portfolio and significantly expand our share of mobility, IT and managed services.
