New London-Wide Business Fibre Network

Lagging applications, grinding downloads, and outages are a thing of the past for London’s enterprises. Vorboss has built a brand-new business fibre network dedicated exclusively to enterprises in Central London—revolutionising the city’s critical fibre infrastructure.

What does this mean for you? You can upgrade your current internet connection to improve your business operations.

Unleashing your ambitions

By providing 10Gbps as standard, an industry first, businesses can operate with effectively zero bandwidth constraints. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) typically resell legacy infrastructure, but Vorboss has a brand-new network of fibre optic cables. We own the process end-to-end and sell directly to our customers.

Internet that scales

You have probably noticed that your business is increasingly reliant on technology and shifting towards cloud-based infrastructure. Is your current ISP able to keep up with your exponentially rising bandwidth demands? Your growing dependence on internet connectivity puts you in a vulnerable position.

‘Many businesses remain at the mercy of restrictive telecommunications products and business models. These legacy networks are a limiting factor in critical technology decisions, which can restrict growth. Our network is unrivalled in both scale and quality, and our sole focus is enabling business growth.’

A new fibre network

Since 2020, we have put in more than 500 km of fibre optic cables in London. We spent over £250 million to create a fibre network solely for commercial use. Businesses in Central London now have direct access to critical fibre infrastructure at a minimum of 10Gbps, up to 100Gbps.

This includes 22 Bishopsgate, Britain’s largest office building noted for its visionary approach to technology. Vorboss internet connectivity helped 22 Bishopsgate secure a WiredScore Platinum connectivity certificate, the highest possible stamp of approval.

Changing the status quo

Our approach to building the network is as disruptive as the network itself. We have created over 300 new jobs for Londoners in the last 18 months; for most, it is their first foray into telecoms. Much of this has been enabled by the 2019 change in regulation surrounding the use of existing duct infrastructure.

‘We’re proud to be in London and believe our team should reflect the diversity of our community. We knew this would only be possible if we attracted new people to this industry.’

Over the last 18 months, nearly 200 people have graduated from the Vorboss Academy, which is an accredited in-house programme designed to give people the skills to kickstart a career in the telecommunications industry.

We have the most diverse fibre optic installation team in the industry; nearly 40% of our field-based team are women, and we strive for gender balance across all job roles.

Internet connectivity in abundance

Our 10Gbps-standard fibre network has redefined London's business landscape, providing speed and capacity that eliminates bandwidth constraints. London’s economy, global standing, and legacy is intimately woven with its connectivity, so greater connectivity means a greater London for all.
