    Annual price change guidance: March 2022

    30 March 2022

    Business costs and inflation are at an all-time high, with the UK’s RPI (retail prices index) rate expected to rise to 9.8% this year. Nonetheless, even after this incredibly challenging period, our passion and love for what we do and our ethos to maintain a customer obsession has not dwindled.

Along with extending our £2,500 Gigabit Voucher Scheme discount, Telcom are mindful that the immediate financial impact of the coronavirus has been severe to many and businesses are looking at what financial support is available from their service providers. This is why we have created the ‘Bounce Back Connection Scheme’ to support the businesses that need it the most right now.

  4. On Thursday 14th May at 1pm, the UK government ended their GBVS (Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme) which gave SME’s a grant of £2,500 towards the cost of their internet connection. As the installation fees for 36 month+ contracts are typically built into your monthly cost, the value of the grant equated to just under a £70 per month discount.

    Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme

    25 March 2019

    Here at Telcom we recognise that world-class internet infrastructure is essential to ensure the UK’s future competitiveness, it enables us to remain at the forefront of technology and continue the tradition of invention and innovation we are proud of in the UK. Faster and more reliable connections are transforming the way we live and work, and better connectivity supports businesses to grow. The Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme run by The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), enables small and medium-sized businesses around the UK to benefit from full-fibre connections. With most superfast connections still dependant on copper telephone wires, which are limited in the speeds they can support, a full fibre infrastructure is required to enable gigabit connection.

    Happy Birthday Telcom

    14 February 2019

    Five years ago, it all started out with a dream to transform Britain’s digital infrastructure. Telcom founders Shaun, Thom and Ali shared the belief that the internet is a basic human right and when readily available, is a catalyst for economic growth, technological innovation and empowerment, with life-changing impact. To realise the Telcom mission, the team set out to create a company people could feel proud of working for and a business customers felt went above and beyond that of the traditional service provider. I think our CEO Shaun put it right when he said “it’s been a rollercoaster to say the least but worth every moment” - I second that!

  8. One of Manchester’s oldest warehouses, the refurbished Bonded Warehouse dates back to the 1860s and only had access to very basic internet infrastructure. The building, owned by Allied London has become recognised as the place in Manchester for enterprise, creativity and innovative working and is the first addition to the new St John’s project. Having a world class internet infrastructure was essential to attracting and retaining tenants.
