Independent network provider, Commsworld, has underlined its continued growth ambitions by opening its first office in London.

Commsworld manages and controls 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 look to hire a new account manager to direct activity from the London base as it continues its exciting growth.

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 valued customers and partners more easily and efficiently, without the early morning flights or having to schedule many meetings into one day.

“It’s an incredibly exciting time for our business and this move represents the next step on our journey.”

Commsworld is an Edinburgh headquartered firm, with offices in Glasgow and Aberdeen and more than 100 staff operating across public and private sector contracts.
