About us

The Internet platform behind millions of businesses.

Once upon a time, it took 12 minutes to download 1 song

Our story begins in 2002. Only 9% of the world had access to the Internet. It’s the time of Internet Explorer, Yahoo and it took about 12 minutes to download one song on Napster. Some of us were playing around with the web’s endless possibilities in our parent’s attics, others were enabling other people to jump on the digital highway.

Since then, we’ve fallen in love with the Internet. It’s the playground we grew up and the realm in which we found our most complex, refreshing and satisfying challenges. Most of all, we love it for the possibilities it enables us to create for others.

Does that make us Geeky? Probably. But we call it Geeky with a Vision. It has always been our second nature to help companies with our understanding of the Internet. This is what drove us in 2002, and what still drives us today.

Be the Internet

As digital transformation has gathered pace and workloads and transactions have shifted to the cloud, we have found that more and more businesses want to make the move from being an Internet ‘user’ to becoming part of the Internet. How else can they reach their end-users and customers, enable workers at home and on the move, and plug in, power and protect their business-critical apps?

As a business with 20 years of experience in bringing networks together, we can help organisations of all sizes make this transition. We know the Internet inside out, and after all these years we still love it. Which is why “be the Internet” is our vision, both for us and our customers. It summarises the ambition we have: to help customers become a part of the Internet, enjoy all the advantages this brings, and take control of their Digital Future
