We began in 2008 as Satellite Solutions Worldwide using satellite broadband to connect rural homes and businesses across the UK who were missing out on traditional fibre internet. We wanted to be the company who united the digital divide and remembered the “forgotten 5%”.
Since 2010, satellite technology has been making huge strides and more and more advanced equipment is being sent 22,000 miles above the planet. While satellite broadband has been at the heart of our service for the last decade, we focus on providing our customers with a range of ways to get connected including high-speed satellite, ultra-fast fixed wireless and reliable 4G networks – meaning no matter where you live we get you connected.
In May 2015, we listed on the London Stock Exchange’s AIM market. At that point we had 10,000 customers. Now through a mix of organic growth (hiring super-talented people and investing in relationships) and acquisitional growth (buying up competitors and innovators) bigblu has over 120,000 customers. We are the largest satellite broadband internet service provider outside North America and are the 4th largest in the world.
