Fuel Broadband Owner Claims to be UK’s Fastest Growing Home ISP

Monday, September 7th, 2015 (1:08 pm) - Score 693

Telecoms provider New Call Telecom, which owns low cost ISP Fuel Broadband (formerly Primus Saver), has today claimed to be the “fastest growing residential broadband provider” in the United Kingdom after they were ranked 53rd in the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 list.

The Tech Track 100 League Table ranks Britain’s 100 private tech (TMT) companies with the fastest-growing sales over the latest three years and sure enough a quick look at this year’s outcome finds that New Call Telecom is indeed listed and this is the first time they’ve ever appeared in the table.

Accord to the results, New Call Telecom had a 3-year average sales growth of 62.27% per year and they made £58 million in sales during the 2014/15 period, which is up from just £13.6 million in 2011/12. Not bad for a Central London based business that was only founded in 2010. The operator also has its own call centre in Nelson, Lancashire.

On top of that the company recently acquired WaveCrest, a UK-based voice wholesaler that also provides branded voice services to businesses such as Tesco. New Call is also expanding in India where last year it acquired Nimbuzz, a mobile technology brand with more than 210 million users across the globe, and Ozone Networks, a major public WiFi provider.

Nigel Eastwood, CEO of New Call Telecom, said:

We are delighted and very proud to be named in Tech Track 100. It is an incredible achievement for such a young company and it reflects not only the very hard work we’ve all put into growing the business globally but also our commitment to innovation in the UK and in India.

We believe that people in the UK and the emerging world want services that are created for the way they lead their lives today. Unlike other companies, we don’t bundle packages together, trying to sell people things they don’t want; we offer real choice and flexibility. In India we create apps and mobile services that work with the infrastructure and connectivity challenges faced by users.

I want to take this opportunity to publicly thank everyone at New Call in both the UK and India for their outstanding efforts. It’s our people, everyone from the development teams in India, our call centre staff in Nelson and our management teams in New Delhi and London, that make New Call the highly successful company it is today.”

In terms of the “fastest growing” claim, it really depends upon what measure you use as it’s generally easiest to show relatively big growth during the earlier years of a business than the latter ones when the business has matured and established itself.

In percentage terms their sales growth is impressive, although it’s not known how much of that is actually from Fuel Broadband’s residential services. Likewise we’re not told how many home broadband subscribers they’ve added over the same period, although it goes without saying that on this measure they’re unlikely to be beating the behemoths of BT or Sky Broadband etc.
