Independent network provider Commsworld has underlined its growth ambitions by opening its first office in London.
Commsworld claims to manage and control Britain’s largest privately operated core fibre network and will now provide transit bandwidth from its new base in the UK capital – encouraging other Internet service providers to utilise its ultra-fast network.
The move comes hot on the heels of the firm’s most successful year ever, with revenues breaking through the £20 million barrier - a 41% increase on the previous year along with a threefold growth in profits.
Commsworld will now look to hire a new account manager to direct activity from the London base.
Ricky Nicol, Chief Executive of Commsworld, said: “Having a base in London is fantastic for us and a major step forward in our bid to cement ourselves as a truly UK-wide organisation.
“It means we can meet with our customers and partners more easily and efficiently, without the early morning flights or having to schedule many meetings into one day.
“It’s an exciting time for our business and this move represents the next step on our journey.”
The Edinburgh-based firm now operates in many towns and cities across the UK. Its next generation network is built specifically for businesses and is said to have revolutionised the speed and resilience of internet for firms across the UK, particularly in Scotland, where it has operated for more than 20 years.
“We’ve invested millions to ensure our network is market-leading and continually growing and being able to sell and share this from a new base in London is very powerful,” added Nicol.
“We’ll now be able to provide our dynamic and personal service from London which opens up a whole avenue of opportunities for us.
“The move is timed perfectly as this year Commsworld will light up over 2,000,000 metres of fibre in a figure of eight around the UK, making it the largest privately-owned Optical Core Network in the UK.”
