The story of Glide

Glide started life as separate businesses delivering broadband, utilities and communications services to different markets across the UK. For decades, we’ve been known for delivering exceptional connectivity and original solutions to the best universities and biggest businesses in the country.

Our different businesses now stand together proudly under the Glide name. Glide brings together the strength and scale of a group with the spirit of a small company that’s always creating better products and services.
We’re specialists in delivering market-leading, super-fast and reliable solutions for students, residential developers and businesses, the three sectors we know inside out.

We offer so much more than connectivity. Unlike many telecoms giants, we build the cabling infrastructure that makes connecting to our own fibre broadband possible. We supply and manage utilities that simplify billing and sort shared living for student homes. And we create pioneering communications platforms that bring people together with content they care about.

The Glide group is growing quickly, expanding our footprint across the UK and into Europe, and building original ways for our customers to connect. Say hello to Glide.

The backbone of our cutting-edge connectivity and communications services is our own physical infrastructure. The group builds, invests in and owns our own high performance network based around a 10-Gigabit Ethernet core in London, the Midlands and Manchester. This allows us to deliver innovative cabling solutions and ultrafast, reliable broadband, TV and telephony products to student rooms, business parks and accommodation developers all over the country.
