About Vorboss

Vorboss is the only network purpose-built for London's most ambitious businesses.

Designed with London’s future in mind, it is providing businesses direct access to critical fibre infrastructure, with simple, transparent pricing.

It is unique in owning its network and service end-to-end. The only network providing 10Gbps as a baseline – well above the industry standard – Vorboss has the capacity to ramp up to 100Gbps.

Vorboss is part of the Fern Trading Group, advised by Octopus Investments, and is investing over £250 million into its fibre network. Since 2020, the company has installed over 500km of fibre optic cables to connect all commercial buildings in Central London, continually expanding a network unrivalled in scale and merit.

Having complete control over the quality and build of its network allows Vorboss to offer its customers the highest level of reliability, flexibility, and efficiency.

Operating a unique in-house academy to train its installation technicians, Vorboss offers a career path to people with little or no telecoms experience. Building an inclusive and diverse workforce is a top priority for the business, especially to address the industry’s significant gender imbalance.

Vorboss has grown rapidly in the last three years. The Sunday Times has recently recognised it as one of the Best Places to Work in the UK and Best Places to Work for Women.

Reliable, uncontended, high-bandwidth internet is essential for business growth. Vorboss is extending access to its unparalleled network to more of London’s businesses, powering one of the most innovative business hubs in the world.
