Breathe Networks Acquires Small UK ISP Zetnet
By: MarkJ - 16 July, 2008 (1:19 PM)

Breathe Networks Limited (BNL) has followed its recent acquisition of Fast4 by adding yet another business to its portfolio in the shape of little known Manchester-based ISP Zetnet Limited:

Marcus East, BNL's founder and Chief Executive, says: "Acquiring Zetnet Limited is another important milestone in our plan to put Breathe back on the map as a specialist Value Added Telecommunications Provider.

BNL’s newly appointed Chief Operating Officer, Steve Kaye confirmed that there would be no disruption to Zetnet’s customers, stating: “Zetnet has a loyal and stable customer base, and we will ensure that there is no disruption in this merger, and that the customers can benefit from a range of new products and services that we will be launching throughout 2008 and 2009.

Steve continued “Following our experiences during the V21 – Biscit fiasco, we have been very conscious to provide a service where the customer is always put first. I will make sure that we delight Zetnet customers by meeting - and exceeding - their expectations.

BNL will continue to operate Zetnet independently, alongside its other brands, which include breathe, macunlimited, Ecosse, Intensive Networks, Bush Internet and, most recently, Fast4.

This is the second acquisition that BNL has made this year - doubling the size of the company - and was backed by the group’s existing shareholders, which include a major private equity firm. It's understood that further acquisitions may also be in the pipe for later this year.
