Wholesale full fibre provider ITS Technology Group and network provider Virtual1 have announced a partnership that combines their network reach, making it even easier for channel partners to access and provide gigabit-capable connectivity services to UK businesses.
ITS designs, builds, and operates full fibre infrastructure known as ‘Faster Britain’ in the marketplace. Through its wholesale model, ITS has seen its partner community grow to more than 350 in the last year. Virtual1’s networks have now been added to ITS’ self-service search, quote, order portal and APIs, which delivers a one-stop-shop for partners to source on-net and off-net connectivity solutions for any business in the UK. Faster Britain’s own network is also on track to pass more than 500,000 /25% of UK business premises by the end of the year.
We’re partnering with ITS Technology Group to enable our customers to access a range of connectivity options that leverage ITS’ network. ITS currently operates across towns and cities which have high business premise concentration, all across Britain. This gives direct access to over 200,000+ more businesses. Working with partners such as ITS is driven by our commitment to the channel to ensure we maintain a commercially strong offering in an ever-increasing competitive market.Toni Whitney, Alt Net Partnership Manager at Virtual1
We are delighted to be partnering with Virtual1. This agreement will allow more businesses to access hassle-free, scalable, gigabit-capable connectivity services. It ensures that ITS’ wholesale Faster Britain footprint is added to Virtual1’s capabilities, while Virtual1’s network capabilities are added to our own partner portal and APIs. It is a win win for all our partners, and most of all for the end-users who now have even more choice to fulfil their connectivity requirements.Philip Lee, Head of Channel at ITS Technology Group
