CableCom Networking Group rebrands as Glide

CableCom Networking Group has signalled a strategic revamp with a name change to Glide. The relaunch focuses on the business, student and residential markets and cements the firm's repositioning and focus on providing infrastructure, connectivity, utilities and technology services to its three key areas of the growing PropTech market. In the last year Glide has seen growth of over 25% to move the business over £50m annual revenue, which has allowed continued substantial investment into its own fibre infrastructure.

The company expects this growth to increase to 30% year on year and has made provisions to deploy an additional 500km of full fibre over the next 12-18months.

Under the new structure, the move sees the streamlining of the group into three key areas: Glide Residential, Glide Student and Glide Business.

Tim Pilcher, CEO at Glide said: "By investing in our national infrastructure we're keeping at the cutting edge of technological innovation. Whether it allows customers to enable smart multi-tenancy premises or future proof their business infrastructure, this is only the beginning and we're really about where we're heading."
