Glide sees growth in wholesale channel

Infrastructure and utilities outfit Glide said that it has noted a remarkable growth in the UK’s wholesale channel market.

Having started from scratch just over a year ago, Glide now has more than 300 partners who are using the Glide fibre network.  Additionally, Glide says it is already billing a significant amount per month with 183 of those partners – a figure which continues to grow on a month-by-month basis.

Glide’s business is based on allowing the channel to cross sell products on top of a better level of connectivity, which is a key requirement for cloud services. One of Glide’s key objectives is opening up a whole host of connectivity options to its channel.

Daniel Alvarez, Head of Wholesale at Glide says: “We first started approaching the reseller channel 14 months ago and it is great to see what our team have achieved in such a short time.”

“In the next three to five years, copper services are forecast to be cut off, meaning it is essential for the wholesale channel to fibre-proof businesses now before it is too late. With the confirmation of the £5 billion in government grants to enable fibre provision, it really is time for resellers to start future proofing broadband for their clients before somebody else does. I am excited to continue with our plans to maximise connectivity for end users and establish ourselves at the forefront of  the industry.”
