About Telcom

Telcom is the UK’s largest full fibre and wireless network provider bringing hyperfast dedicated internet to businesses, channel partners and commercial landlords across the UK. 

Unlike many providers, we build, own and manage the entire network infrastructure end-to-end and employ our own engineering teams, allowing us to roll out the network faster than anyone else and get customers connected in days not months.

Gresham House’s British Sustainable Infrastructure Fund II (“BSIF II”) initially invested £63mn into Telcom Group, within its Digital Inclusion investment thematic, in 2021. Gresham House made a further investment in October 2023 to enable Telcom to acquire Luminet, London’s largest Fixed Wireless network operator and leading business-to-business connectivity provider.

Telcom is rapidly expanding its network and building its customer base of business customers across the UK.  The company continues  to roll out its Network and Fully Managed Network Services across wholesale and direct routes to market.

We believe the internet is a basic human right and a key catalyst for economic growth, technological innovation, and empowerment.

At Telcom, we deploy infrastructure that is built for greatness and designed for impact, that ultimately connects for good.
