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 eight complementary businesses, which include the acquisitions of Glamorgan Telecom Group and Nice Network in 2020.

In 2021, LDC provided follow-on funding to help Onecom acquire its closest rival, Olive Communications. Onecom also 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 and acquired Exeter-based IP Office Ltd.

Bristol-headquartered Solution IP Communications was acquired by Onecom, in September 2022.

Onecom now employs more than 600 staff in offices around the UK and have 100,000 customers and 400+ channel partners and resellers engaged across the group.

Martin Flick, CEO of Onecom, was named Entrepreneur of the Year at the Growing Business Awards 2022.
