In this episode, we sit down with Tim Creswick, a visionary leader who is the CEO and founder of Vorboss, London's only dedicated business fibre network and internet service provider.

Tim's journey is nothing short of remarkable.

He initially launched Vorboss as a software consultancy and managed service provider in 2006. However, it was in 2019 that he recognized the limitations of London's existing internet providers and infrastructure in the business district. This realization propelled him to transform the telecoms sector.

Since 2020, Vorboss, now a part of the Fern Trading Group, has invested over £300 million into a full-fibre network, providing businesses with direct access to essential fibre infrastructure, accompanied by transparent pricing. The company has laid over 500km of fibre optic cable, connecting all commercial buildings in Central London, creating an unrivalled network in terms of both scale and quality.
