Wednesday, 29 March, 2017

Scottish ISP TenTel broadband has reported record growth figures by signing up more than 100 new customers a day.

The company says it enjoyed its most successful month in October 2016 when it processed 2,000 orders.

The Edingburgh-based provider, founded in 2013, has added 30-day and six-month rolling contracts to its stable of offers.

It now employs more than 80 people and expects to add an extra 10 staff by December 2017.

Robert McKechnie, Tentel managing director, said: “The last 12 months have seen fantastic growth for TenTel and our record figures are testament to this.

“We have established ourselves as one of the fastest-growing independent internet service providers in the UK, with more than 10 percent revenue growth month-on-month.

“We are seeing growing demand for short-term broadband options as well as telephone contracts that don’t tie you into lengthy contracts or incur big connection charges.”

Tentel’s management team has set a further target of signing up an extra 20,000 customers by July 2017.
