Deal value


Onecom is the largest business-to-business mobile, fixed-line and cloud specialist in the UK.

Onecom manages nearly 500,000 corporate and business customers, delivering communication services and unified solutions across fixed-line voice, connectivity and cloud computing to some of the UK’s most dynamic companies. These include Samsung, Apple, Vodafone, Mitel and Gamma.

Headquartered in Fareham, Hampshire, the business has nine regional offices and its partners include Samsung, Apple, Gamma, Mitel and Virtual1.

It is also a major partner of Vodafone, and in June 2019 Onecom announced a five-year deal together that will be worth up to £600m in revenue.

Supporting the team’s vision

In 2019 Onecom secured investment from LDC in a £100m deal to allow it to implement its strategy to grow through acquisition.

Since then, Onecom has acquired four complementary businesses, which include the acquisitions of Glamorgan Telecom Group and Nice Network in 2020.

In February 2021, LDC provided follow-on funding to help Onecom acquire its closest rival, Olive Communications. The following month, Onecom added thousands of fixed line and cloud customers and hundreds of channel partners to its portfolio in a deal with 9 Group to acquire its retail and wholesale divisions.

In October 2021, Onecom acquired IP Office Ltd in its third acquisition in 2021. The transaction brings IP Office’s Exeter-based team and in excess of 700 customers into the Onecom Group family.

Today Onecom is the UK’s largest business-to-business mobile, fixed-line and cloud specialist and generates total sales of over £140m.
